I got a ticket late one night for running a red light. Except that it was an unresponsive light that did not change for over two minutes which, under State law, may be treated as a stop sign -- you wait, no change, you go ahead cautiously. I took the ticket to the Magistrate the next morning, and when I began describing what had happened, she said, " Let me guess, this was Officer Jones, and it was at the intersection of Wilson and the Bypass? Okay, case dismissed. Sorry for your inconvenience."
