My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: New Jersey
I am only 17 and the other night I got two tickets: one for driving past curfew, and one for breaking Kayleigh's Law which states that I have to have red stickers on the top left corner of both license plates so people know I have my provisional license. I was wondering if there is anyway I could dispute these tickets. Here is the story of what happened...
I was going to my friends house and got lost, so I pulled into a park so I could call my friend and ask for directions. There were no signs that said the park closes after dark or anything. As we were pulling out a cop drive by and pulled us over. The reason he pulled us over was cause he thought we were smoking weed (we werent). I was obeying all other traffic laws. If I was over 18 we would've gotten away without a ticket. Since I wasn't breaking any laws and there was no way for the cop to know I was only 17 before he pulled us over, can I dispute the tickets? Isn't it like profiling or discrimination or something.
Also, does a cop have to obey all the traffic laws if his blue and red lights are off?
