I have had a perfect driving record for more than 20 years. Tonight on our way to the grocery store I was pulled over for running a stop sign- a 4 way stop near my house. The cops were backed into a driveway out of sight. I KNOW that I didn't run the stop sign- I go through it every day. My son said that he saw me stop. I did not agree with the ticket and refused to sign. The cop told me that he would take me to jail if I didn't sign. My son got upset, so I went ahead and signed after I read it. Can they really take you to jail if you don't sign? I am so mad. I've got to get my thoughts together and prepare to go to court on Jan. 20. Will they give me a time to appear or do I have to sit in court all day? Should I take my 10 year old with me as a witness? I really don't want him to miss school. Any advice will be appreciated.
