Got one on the 4th of July a couple of years ago. Cop was fresh out of the academy and on a power trip. I was passing two cars legally on a country road in the middle of no where. $320 and he told me he'd raise it if I wanted to appeal it. Had a ****ty night at the fireworks, and on the way back, guess who's in the campground.... Mr Personality. Pulls me over again and asks me if I wanted another ticket because the speed limit in the campground is 5mph. I kindly told him I can't do 5, that I can do 7 before I stall out and the reason why you though I was going so fast is because my engine RPMs were high for first gear rolling down the hill.
He didn't like any of that. The court date was set for December 23rd 2011. I got a call on the 21st saying "you're all set, you don't need to show up. It was thrown out before it even made it to court."
Never heard of that, but lucked out because we had a blizzard that week and it would of taken me 4 hours to get there and 4 hours to get home.
Had a $200 recently for 60 in a 40. Was total bull****, (seriously), but fought it and got it reduced to $100.
