traffic court

My coworker got a ticket for running a red light and she is going to traffic court to dispute it. She was caught on a red-light camera. I am wondering, what is the point of going to traffic court when you're caught on camera - obviously you ran the light, but do you ask for the amount to be lowered or dismissed for some reason? Her argument was that the sun was in her eyes.

Are you crafty? What kinds of things do you like to make?

Will you post a pic of something you've created? I'd like to get into more crafty projects other than scrapbooking.
