A physicist at the University of California San Diego used his knowledge of measuring bodies in motion to show in court why he couldn't be guilty of a ticket for failing to halt at a stop sign. The argument, now a four-page paper delving into the differences between angular and linear motion, supposedly got the physicist out of a $400 ticket. If you want to use this excuse, you'll have to learn a little math -- and some powers of persuasion.

In order to fight a California stop ticket, one must be a California scientist.

It's harder to fight a California stop ticket in Washington DC if you're a Mormon Idaho Senator....

The physicist drives a Yaris? That alone screams FAKE!

In Florida you pay the ticket clinic about $50 to $80 depending on the lawyer. And it just disappears, It makes no sense. The tickets are at least $140, and if you try to fight it in court, you would end up paying the ticket plus court fees. With out a ticket clinic which you don't do nothing. You'll always win even if you were in the wrong, show up and try to fight it your self, and you'll loose, especially if you feel undignified by the injustice of the ticket you feel you didn't deserve.
