i believe driving is about 50% understanding protocols and procedures and 50% common sense.
i basically speed all the time when safe to do so. (i guess i should rephrase to when i deem it safe to do so) i roll lots of stop signs and right turns at red lights and i get the whole "driving tax" mentality but common sense and a good understanding of your surroundings is more important imo then following the rules all the time. (which is how i account for my accident free/incident free driving record over the past 13 years)
i would love to meet a judge with a level head enough to see that there are circumstances where small infractions should be allowed to slide. and i guess what i was kind of getting at is if for example you run into an officer who decides to give you a ticket for some small infraction is there any chance of a judge using his/her discretion to throw away a ticket based on evidence presented that said infraction wasn't really causing any real harm. or are judges always zero discretion, by the book, to the letter, when it comes to driving infractions.
and just to reiterate i don't actually have a ticket to dispute here.
