My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: Michigan
I was in a parking lot for about an hour after going in and coming out, and the officer said basically I got a ticket for being in the parking lot without going in (and I didn't want to argue that I had gone in already but didn't buy anything).
He basically said it's nothing, just a fee and gives no points, doesn't go on my record, etc.
But I can't find anything about it online and so far it doesn't say anything about how much it costs.
It is a civil infraction and has an appearance date -- but if I pay it do I have to go to that? It says I can mail it, but if I pay online does that admit responsibility (so that I don't have to mail it)?
Does anybody have any idea about the type of money this will cost?
All it says:
OR-USE LOT OTHER THAN INT. 895
Although I think I just found it; it says on their website " MISUSE OF LOT/LOITERING $130.00"
How ridiculous... :-/ Is this something I should try and fight?
