My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: California
I was driving in Tilden Regional Park on a curvy road with a speed limit of 30 mph when I passed a Regional Park police officer at 35 or 38 on a hundred yard long straightaway, and he did not react in any way. A few turns later, a different officer pulls out and pulls me over down the road. About five minutes later, the first officer shows up and writes me a ticket for CVC 22350 Basic Speed and CVC 21460 (A) Crossing Double Yellow. Apparently, two cyclists who I passed at 38 or 40 on a broad turn flagged him down and asked him, “Are you planning on giving that guy a ticket?”, saying I almost killed them in a four wheel skid. On the ticket, he has me down for 65 mph in a 40 zone. He based my speed off of two people’s “testimony” standing at the apex of a turn, where it looks like a car is going the fastest. Also, there was no possible way he saw me go around the turn near the cyclists, and did not get me on radar. I plan on fighting this ticket, but my only witnesses are my two friends and my brother in the car with me. Will it come down to my word against the cyclists'? And what am I looking at in terms of a fine? I will win this one, right?
