Q&A - Disputing my failing to stop ticket
I approached a 4 way stop, and I know without a shadow of a doubt that I stopped. I waited & proceeded straight through the intersection as there were no cars approaching the intersection from any direction. This happened about 10 pm at night, at an intersection about 3 blocks from my home, so it is an intersection I am very familiar with.
About 10 seconds later, a police officer showed up behind me with his lights on and pulled me over for failing to stop at a stop sign.
I cannot say for certain if his vantage point was in front, beside me (as to the right or left of the 4 way stop) or behind me.
My thinking is perhaps he pulled me over because I did not wait for a full 3 seconds before proceeding.
Is there anything else I could argue to substantiate my plea?
