I have no idea what laws in your state are like so you must study what applies to you and your situation.
Look at each of the violations in the law books or on line. Donít forget to go over the definitions (probably in the beginning of the chapter). As you read, see how each law and its definitions apply to your situation or does not apply to you. The laws you are charged with violating are printed on the citation you were given. Print copies of the law and the definitions & Take some photos of your machine
Dress very nice in court. Have a folder with your paper work. Have two or three copies of the law and your photos to hand out as needed. It looks very good to the judge when you present yourself in a professional and courteous manner. When talking with the officer or judge be polite, this is important.
Ask the Officer what the definition of a motorcycle is. (If it does not include 6 wheels then a helmet should not be required unless it is required by some other law) If the Max can not get an inspection, have the law outlining who can get inspections. Ask the Officer about inspection requirements. If he canít answer correctly, ask the judge if you may show him the Law. (You have a copy ready-The judge will probably look it up in his own book) Write down several questions ahead of time so you donít have to search for the question when itís time. Remember when you are asking questions it is not your turn to make statements. In your closing statement you can include a comment about the charges being Ďstackedí on you. Take your checkbook with you to court and be prepared to pay. You will know how you stand after you have researched the laws and what they mean.
