A government lawyer is attempting to get dismissed almost $700 in traffic tickets given to U.S. Postal Service employees in Cleveland, claiming it is immune from state and local regulations, Yahoo! News reported.

Postal Service attorney Jennifer. S. Breslin says the infractions, which include speeding citations and red-light infractions, should be ignored.

“In providing mail service across the country, the Postal Service attempts to work within local and state laws and regulations, when feasible,” she said in a letter responding to a summons for payment, according to Cleveland.com.

“However, as you are probably aware, the Postal Service enjoys federal immunity from state and local regulation,” Breslin wrote.
