Possibly but cities across my state have been investigated for such crimes as these high fines. I researched this issue. Its a federal crime to suspend a license. Either way I win in the end even if it seems wreckless Lol
I drive perfectly well. Can't help how stupid laws are and waste tax payer money. They don't even fix the roads with cracks in them , yet they allow for looters to wreck havock in that sane city and get out of their crimes. Sounds like corruption!
The first item you mention may (or may not) be true - but for arguments sake say it is true - you are likely going to need a lawyer to fight this for you which is going to cost you much more money than just sucking it up and paying the ticket in the first place. So yes you may win - but your pocket book is going to suffer more. Way to go!
If you ran a red light then you do not drive perfectly well. Red lights are the law for a reason - they are not stupid and one would think a car accident would be much more expensive for a tax payer (use of police and fire, for example).
What is more likely to happen to you now since you completely ignored everything -- is the least thing to happen is increased fines and fees with the longer you ignoring it the more they will increase. You continue to ignore this will likely cause your license to be suspended - yeah you could try to fight that if you think it is a federal crime - but again that would entail a lawyer and that again will be more expensive than just paying the fine in the first place. And at the worst a warrant out for your arrest.
All this because you ignored the fine. To me you seem reckless and stupid - not the law. So you can go ahead and feel you did something - but the future you is not going to be very happy.
