The proof of innocence: how physicists fight traffic tickets

The paper The proof of innocence [link removed] gives "a way to fight your traffic tickets. The paper was awarded a special prize of $400 that the author did not have to pay to the state of California."

Dmitri Krioukov, the author of paper "The proof of innocence", a University of California, San Diego physicist, argued his way out of a $400 traffic ticket by writing this four-page paper purportedly proving that he could not have failed to halt at a stop sign. While it's doubtful anyone in the courtroom fully understood Dmitri Krioukov's abstract, the treatise titled "The Proof of Innocence" apparently made the argument that the officer who gave the ticket had his view briefly blocked, and furthermore, the officer's distorted view of the car had confused him into thinking Krioukov hadn't stopped.

Krioukov's paper is available online [link removed] for anyone who wants to check his math or use it as a template to try to talk their way out of their own moving violation.
