Description

The Hartford Courant found that "in Connecticut each year tens of thousands of motorists, many with convictions for reckless driving and other serious offenses, beat the system... In some parts of the state, 75 percent of those who challenge their tickets get the charges dropped. In the vast majority of cases, prosecutors don't even review the motorists' driving records and the defendants are not required to come to court."
