http://reason.com/blog/2017/07/28/in-louisiana-get-a-speeding-ticket-pay-t I got a speeding ticket in a school zone last year. No 'begin school zone' signs for 4 streets that allow a turn into the school zone. Well known trap, but not to me unfortunately. It was on TV last week. One ticketed guy presented lots of photos and sworn statements to the judge who ruled it inadmissible, probably because he did not use a lawyer, we know how that works. Anyway the diversion money here goes to your lawyer. Speeding ticket lawyers charge considerably less than the ticket price and split that amount with the court. They even send you postcards after you get the ticket announcing their service, of course the court helps by making the ticket a public record. And no ding to the driving record. I love a good money making scheme.
