How can one appeal multiple traffic tickets?

My friend was riding his bike through Brooklyn early Sat morning. Streets were quiet and he was not stopping at all the red lights, just slowing & crossing the (mostly) vacant intersections. Unbeknownst to him there was a cop in a patrol car following him about 1/2 a block back. After multiple blocks the cop finally pulled him over and issued separate tickets for every red light, totally about $800 worth. Although there is no dispute that he went through the lights, this was a very dick-ish move. How to protest in court? [more inside]

Am I A Fugutive?

I was issued two citations for speeding from New York State Police in the mid 90's. I never paid them. When I got the second one, I assumed that the officer would arrest me or at least mention the first but he did not. I have never had a New York State driver's license and I have had licenses renewed by the state of which I was a resident at the time and the one in which I have resided for ten years. Nor any problems with insurance. Should I do anything about this? [more inside]
