Adventures in justice

So I finally went downtown to take care of the tickets I'd received last month for expired tabs and driving after having my license suspended.

A quick stop at the violations bureau to get my notice of late payment stamped and then across the way and downstairs to the hearing office. There, a short wait and then back to a very nondescript office.

The hearing officer explained that I could either pay the full fine, $285, and the misdemeanor driving after a suspension would not go on my record. Or, I could have the fine reduced and it would go on my record. The kicker is, if it goes on my record, that means an automatic 30-day suspension of my license.

So I paid the full fine, naturally, but was left a bit confused by the whole ordeal. Ericka says it's like the mob: Pay the money and nothing bad happens.
