I got 2 tickets for Disregard of Traffic Control Device in Mississippi. The officer said it was because I drove through a parking lot to avoid a red light. Putting aside the fact that there are many reasons to drive into a parking lot and not stop, there doesn't seem to be any law in Mississippi against this. Can someone advise me before I go to court? Should I just request a dismissal? Can the police issue tickets for something they wish were illegal?
