It is a lesson that Sony Pictures Entertainment Co-Chairperson Amy Pascal could have benefited from before sending emails with racist comments about President Obama.

Hi Lifehacker, I have recently been issued a $113 fine for driving in a bus lane in a non-exempt vehicle, to access a driveway on the left hand side of the road. I have written to the issuing Police station to contest this fine but I have been denied. When asked what the officer had written in his brief, I was advised that he had taken leave and the traffic department as well as one of the officers at the station had reviewed my request.
