Pointless Traffic Ticket Complaints

traffic complaints

State Troopers and deputies really have heard it all. And they get the same sob stories over and over.

That’s why this article that my wife found seems pertinent for drivers too:

Complaints that fail: 5 e-mails to avoid

The article is focused on the travel industry and the pointless complaints customers send in. They’re basically shooting themselves in the foot instead of resolving their problem like they want.

My favorite for traffic stops is the “special circumstance.” Just like every traveler has special circumstances, so does every driver. There’s some critical incident happening. Or you’re on the way to someone’s funeral. Most drivers have a story about why they’re different.

Please don’t misunderstand me. Circumstances matter. But that’s typically something we need to present to the judge or prosecutor. It’s almost never going to stop the officer from writing a ticket once he has you pulled over.

I encourage anyone who is stopped to be polite to the officer. We’ll present the circumstances at court.
