Received a ticket, cop says I was tailgating. I probably was too close because the car was creeping on a major road left lane. I did get close when the left turn lane began to get into the left turn lane. I know its a he said, he said situation. Any reason to plead not guilty? There is no fine amount listed on the ticket so if I just plead guilty I don't even know what the fine will be. The funny thing is that I got rear ended in my car 3 times since I got it May of 2013 so I am usually very careful about tailgating.
