Ha! In North Carolina (where the "good book" or it's contents are used at every possible chance) we have something called a "PJC". It stands for "Prayer for Judgement Continued". What they do here is, if you have been a bad boy/girl, the judge can grant you a PJC which
is basically the same as your article 893 except you have to be good for 3 years!
This is granted by the judge (I've been told if you ask for it, they like to refuse). It's based on your previous driving record. If you've been habitually bad, you're cooked.
If you know the DA (hehehe) they can recommend it themselves.
I had the honor of using a PJC about 5 years ago when I was cruising down the interstate toward the coast just under 80MPH (limit was 55 at the time). I was so relaxed I didn't even notice the trooper behind me until he was 10 feet off my bumper!
WOW! Back to reality! He was a smart a$$ too. Wanted to know what color they used to call my hair..... it's light colored these days..... I had a cooler in the front seat so he tried their little "sniffer" on me as well. Sorry, it was soda. No breaks, sited me for 75 in a 55 and said the court visit was mandatory because in NC, 20 MPH over the limit and you lose your license for a year.
If you have to drive, do it in a C5.
