My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Minnesota
I got the ticket when I was heading home from the casino on a Tuesday at about 11:30 at night. The casino is located in the middle of nowhere and only has two ways of getting to it. Both are on county highways coming from either the North or South. When I was going to the Casino earlier that night I ran into the road closed signs across the highway, I thought it was most likely closed due to flooding and was curious as to where the road was flooded. So I went around the signs with no intentions of driving all the way down the road and continued cautiously. I saw a few other cars driving on the highway as I went along. I eventually reached the road closed signs at the other end of the road, not having seen a single sign of flooding. So when I was going to head home later that night, I thought I would just go back that same way. I had no clue how to get home taking the other highway from the casino. So I reached the barricades, which when coming this way had a sign that said road under water, drove around them and continued on the road. There was a truck a few hundred feet behind me that did the same thing. A couple cars passed me going the other way on the closed highway. As I approached a bottleneck where you could take a right I noticed a car with it's headlights on just waiting there. I knew it was a cop instantly and pulled over after I passed hime before he even turned on his lights. There was another cop just finishing up giving another car a ticket ahead of me. The truck behind me just drove past since both the cops were busy. I was very polite with the officer, he gave me my ticket and told me I could continue down the closed road the direction I was going. There were no detour signs anywhere at all to tell you how to get to the open part of the highway. I know that I was completely in the wrong and obviously drove around the signs, but is there any approach I can use to try and get out of this ticket in court?
