Understanding your recourse back into Common and Constitutional Law:
“A party who with explicit reservation of rights performs or promises performance or assents to performance in a manner demanded or offered by the other party does not thereby prejudice the rights reserved. Such words as “without prejudice,” “under protest” or the like are sufficient.”
“Any expression indicating an intention to reserve rights is sufficient such as “without prejudice.”
This “Reservation of Rights” can be exercised by making the following notion above your signature on contracts and agreements and other documents requiring your signature.
“All Rights Reserved, Without Prejudice UCC 1-207″ or “Without Prejudice UCC 1-207″
UCC Effect of Reservation of Rights 1-207:7 states:
“The making of a valid Reservation of Rights preserves whatever rights the person then possess and prevents the loss of such rights by application of concepts of waiver or estoppel.”
Your greatest protection is provided by reserving your Rights in writing. However the code does state that it is not a requirement that such reservation of rights be written but they must be explicit:
UCC 1-207: 5 Form of Reservation, states:
“The Code does not impose any requirement as to the form of the reservation, other than it be explicit…”
(Explicit: Fully and clearly expressed or demonstrated; leaving nothing implied.)
UCC 1-207: 6 Reservation by conduct, states:
“Although UCC 1-207 authorizes the making of an express reservation, it is not to be deduced that there is no reservation of rights unless that section is followed. To the contrary, when the conduct of a party clearly shows that he has not waived any rights, the fact that there was no express reservation as authorized by UCC 1-207 is not significant.”
The common debtor citizen, or someone interested in the Rights of American Citizens did not write the Uniform Commercial Code or its predecessors, the Law Merchant or The Negotiable Instrument Law. The history of this Code shows that it was originally created by barbarians to codify and give the semblance of legality to “robbery” by the creditors! These documents were written by and for the benefit of creditors, without any “separation of powers” protections, without due process for the debtor, and without respect for any equity the debtor may have invested in property that the creditor may seize. Therefore, it is imperative that you ALWAYS reserve your rights on all signed documents.
What does all this have to do with signing tickets, you ask?… in any form, such as receipts, invoices, promissory notes, financial agreements, contracts (of which tickets are a form of), checks and so forth are subject to the Uniform Commercial Code, period.
If there was a law that they could make you pay for speeding or whatever, then they wouldn’t need your signature; By your signature on the ticket, you agree to the terms of the contract. No, your signature on the ticket is a PR or OR bond to appear in court. By signing, you promise to appear before a judge.
I always politely ask the LEO what would happen if I refuse to sign the ticket. They usually politely tell me that I would immediately go to jail. That’s because by not signing, you have refused to sign a bond, and they can’t release you.
This has threatened my liberty and puts me in a state of duress or coercion. So I sign the ticket “under duress all rights reserved UCC 1-207”
Ever wonder why when you go to court the first thing they ask you to do is to waive your rights by signing different forms? If they ask you to sign, its red flag time, meaning do your homework first. If they could do it to you without a signature, they would, period.
How come if you murder someone in front of a LEO, he doesn’t ask you to sign something? Most jurisdictions won’t release someone accused of Murder on a PR or OR bond. If a person accused of murder posts a surety or cash bond, then he signs that bond and is free to go until his trial.
There’s a difference between laws and ordinances. Law says No Signature Required. Ordinances say: Sign Here, join our payment club. Most LEO’s (No disrespect intended) are just glorified meter maids selling their product. No, according the Black’s Law Dictionary an ordinance is a law passed by a municipality.
