Exclamation Got a ticket... fight it?

so a couple weeks ago i got a ticket doing 86 on my way down to Los Angeles, cop was nice, easy, didnt really give me a chance to try and get out of it LOL but did right me up for only going 79 instead of 86 which the Airplane apparently booked me at.

I just got my ticket in the mail yesterday and just noticed that they spelled my name incorrectly: Brian instead of Bryan. A couple friends of mine have told me to fight the ticket because they cannot prove it was me because in the case file they misspelled my name compared to what is on my drivers license.

I looked on the handwritten ticket the cop that pulled me over gave me and it seems that he spelled my name correctly Bryan, but his handwritting is 5/10 on the legible scale.

Should i fight the ticket in hope that the court does not have a copy of the handwritten ticket with my name sort of spelled correctly with the argument that my name isnt Brian Coleman so they cannot give me the ticket
or
should i just pay the $300 and do the traffic school and just be happy that he booked me for 79 instead of 86

???????

That's a 5/10? Seems pretty clear to me. Also, I'd black out your address for safety reasons. Public forum, after all.

Well I can't say for sure but, I know I would NEVER post any of my personal information on a public forum. You just don't know in today's society.

I think you should get ready to explain to your wife about all the new play girl subscription you now have and is getting sent to your house. I own you Bryan!

Might also wanna change ur username while at it (and leave the paper trail from your sig).

Don't mess with the law man... you'll dig yourself into a deep, deep hole.

I'd just man-up, take responsibility for your actions and move-on with your life.

also i noticed your in LA, I have had luck with TBD in LA. Cops dont get paid overtime to fill out the forms for TBD the way they do for court days. They are less likely to reply to your TBD form.

Tough Call, but remember the police officer usually shows up in court too
