: needless to say I am up set about getting this
: after I had finally got my record cleared.
: Since he only sited me for this and not speeding

: in the first place. If I have any punches to pull
: here I would like to find them. I know I can go to trial and do the continuence and such hoping
: the officer will not show. I know this is purely
: revenue gathering for this town and I really don't
: care to contribute. thank you for any info I can
