    Lawyer is always the way to go, or if you dont wanna pay the $ subpoena the officer and there is a high probability he or she might not show. I got a lawyer for a 111 in a 70 and poof it was gone, tried to fight a recent (and bullshit) 45 in a 40 (yes 5mph) and lost even though i had evidence and everything. The dude in the back however, who was their for 4 different infractions, had a subpoena for the officer and got off all charges.

      I got a $400 ticket for evading pursuit (think being boxed in by one cop ahead and 3-4 behind, all with 3" of ground clearance and a 2 gallon gas tank in the middle of the desert) along the Mexican border on my Harley, wish I had known to lawyer up then.

      ....wait what? Please elaborate.

                    On your E30's does anything connect into the switch that sits in front of your brake pedal? Believe that is my sensor, but since I did a swap, I don't know what connector goes there.

                          Yeah I tend to get mistaken for 19-20 at most. Got my Dad's good gene's in that retrospect.

                          It's apart of the assembly right? Google/realoem/Bentley is being f*cking pointless.

                            Yes you should have a brake light switch and have it connected

                              Aaron.... How old are you? I assumed you were older than 25.

                                It was california highway patrol, not the mexican police, fortunately.

                                One car started chasing me for speeding, didn't notice it since I was rocking out to Rush at the time. After a few miles I see a cop car ahead of me with the lights on, so I start slowing down. Oddly enough, it starts slowing down too. Eventually I realize that it's going to slow down into me if I don't pull over. Because I've got my leathers on I can't see out my rearview mirrors, so I shift over, look in my rearview and see 3-4 cars chasing me with their lights on.

                                I pull over (along with all of the cops) and it's hands-behind-my-head searching my pockets and stuff. Because I'm a WA rider normally, my registration/insurance is in my jacket liner (which stays in the jacket, except of course when you're in the desert, then it's at home), so they get all mad that I can't prove that the bike is mine. It was only about 2 months old at the time, so still new looking.

                                They let me off with speeding and didn't get cited for lack of insurance, registration, listening to music with 2 earbuds in, or evading pursuit. When he was writing it up he finally asked me what I was listening to and I told him it was Rush - YYZ. Without dropping a beat he was like "Yeah, figures." Off I went with a $400 ticket and I texted the then-gf to say "I just got f*cked by the long dick of the law." and landed in LA about 4 hours later.
