Yes, if it's my day off, or outside of my normal work shift, then I get paid overtime. On my day off, I get a minimum of four hours, even if it only takes me two hours to go to court, testify, and get home. We're required to go. There are some reasons why I wouldn't go to a traffic ticket, but they happen few and far between. I'd get in trouble if I didn't show up, so I just go

--What day and what time would you say is the best time to fihgt a ticket? TIA
It doesn't matter. They're all the same, really. Most of the courts assign you the day, rather than the other way around.
