Seriously, by writing a letter and asking nicely for it to be removed?

Maybe I should have put a " ::) " on my first comment above... (seems to be all the rage these days anyway).

It's sure to cost you more than $90. Maybe just pay it?

The "fighters" charge half the amount that they save you (no fee if unsuccessful).

I think the wa y they work is you fax them the ticket and any excuse you may have and they'll tell you if they'll take it.

-1

As has been mentioned, these types of places will charge you half of what the fine would be if they are successful. If not, you don't pay a dime.

The above opportunity would be the downside for "asking nicely."

Dont you need evidence to why you aren't guilty ? I'm not sure if you can just ask nicely and the ticket will be dismissed, its not like your dealing with a credit card company , where you just ask nicely and you get what you want.

What are you responding to? Using the "quote" feature makes it much clearer.
