Early morning on May 26th, I was driving to McDonald's. Coming up on a four-way intersection on a road with nearly no street lights, at night, there was a stoplight out. There are multiple intersections/stoplights on this road, and it wasn't until I was maybe 10 feet in front of the intersection that I was able to see it was there. Looking to my left, I also saw a portable stop sign on the median that divided the 4 lanes into two opposite lanes. I slammed on my brakes as fast as I could, but wasn't able to stop before passing the sign and going into the intersection. The officer pulled me over and gave me a "Failure to stop and Stop sign" ticket. Is this just simply my fault or is there something I can do besides accept all the fees and points?
