There are plenty of ways to get out of a traffic ticket: charm, flattery, fakery, full-on tears, “My uncle is a cop”
all come to mind. Submitting a four-page paper with math equations and graphs proving that your traffic violation was the result of the officer suffering from an optical illusion isn’t the strategy most people would employ. It worked, though.
The paper was awarded a special prize of $400 that the author did not have to pay to the state of California.
