on top of that, i went to the city website to pay them, and even though they have a listed record of all the tickets associated with your tag number, you can only pay 1 at a time. so you have to go through the whole business of selecting the citation, choosing to pay with a bank account to avoid the fee (CC with fee is the default of course), filling in your info (at least there is copy paste for that), and selecting and answering a "secret" question, and confirming the payment, each time. and each time the page has to reload, and its the slowest server in the universe.
fuck you baltimore city citation people. fuck you in the face. you are a lot of whores.
I feel for you.
Just got my first speeding ticket EVER a couple days ago -- was going 70 in a 60 zone on the left lane and I was totally going with the flow of traffic. Problem was, I was the head of the pack so I was creating the flow of traffic for that lane
Anyway, asked to take a driving safety test so it wouldn't show up on my record and I still have to pay around $120 in court fees/fines.
