I thought as much but wen I did it mention it to a cop he got real defensive on the matter. Inthinknthere logic was if u r guilty u wont appeal it therefore wont clog the system. I've got a horrible record but the last 2 times since I've cleaned my act up I've taken the time to get a mechanics report and take it to court and walked out without charge.
Last thing they tried doing me for was not having a shroud over my thermo fans. They are enclosed in there own secure little covers but he argued that I still needed one. That was from a state traffic branch. His argument was someone could walk up to my car, pop my bonnet, lift my bonnet then get there hands caught. f**k off idiot
