You can fight it, you will need a lawyer most likely, but those tickets are more than likley given to the person driving the car. Usually when it goes to court they will drop the smaller infractions and focus on the bigger ones. Police like to issue a bunch of tickets just in case one doesn't stick, from my experience. Sorry to hear about the circumstances involved hopefully everything works out for you guys!

Sounds just as bad as the some of the stupid laws in Florida too. I been hasled for my steering knob. I think they hate it because it looks like the revolver part of a gun that is loaded. Sorry to hear about the dwi though.

If you put an aftermarket muffler on your car and it's against the law in your state of course they can charge you with it.

I've said it before, TCCoA isn't a law firm and the last thing you or your Mother need is internet legal advice. Bite the bullet and get a real lawyer, they'll take care of the lesser charges ... on the DUI, well, there is no defense.

You can expect your mailbox to fill with offers from various legal firms over the next few weeks. Just pick one and go with it.

Laws vary state to state.

Modifying your mufflers is Illegal here in California, but 99% of the police never enforce this .. they are looking for the more serious offenders :rolleyes:

You don't have to be worry about your moms ticket if she is old enough to drive and drink then let her solve her own business what you have to be worried is because now your car is tagged as a client ticket for the next months so better take it easy in that heavy foot .

They probably nailed the car for every little thing they could once they suspected DUI, hence the muffler and air freshener tickets.

Why? There's no excuse for driving drunk. None.

Cutting thru the crap and locker room insults...

http://www.google.com/search?q=ny+state+exhaust+alter+statute

It's what all us old timers know full well as a 'Discretionary enforcement Law'. When some lawmaker gets pissed off, or has enough constituents get pissed off, at some idiot running the streets showing off he puts up something like that.
The rest of the assy spends about ten seconds considering ramifications of said statute. "WTH, cant hurt. I never needed no damn glasspacks."
Make matters worse it aint enough for some busybodies ..

Bite the bullet, change the muffler to something like stock for a few months then put it back on and drive careful.

This is what happens when enough ******* juveniles insist on their constitutional right to make any amount of noise they want. They screw it up for the ones with some sense.
