My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: CA
I was recently pulled over after getting off the freeway at an intersection and making a right turn.
The citing officer and another officer were about 50 yards away from the intersection on the street I turned on to and the second officer was writing a citation to a car that was already pulled over.
I was cited for Turning right where a sign was posted "No Right on Red"
Upon looking at pictures from the vantage point of where the officer pulled me over from it is obvious that all lights in the direction of traffic from which I turned are obscured by the freeway overpass.
He could not have possibly seen that the light was red as I was making my turn, does this help me?
Also, during the time that he was collecting my information and writing my citation, he was also pulling over other cars. I find it hard to believe that with so much going on he was able to accurately determine the state of the traffic lights when he could not even see them.
By the time he finished my citation, there were four total cars at the side of the road pulled over for the same violation presumably.
Do I have any defense here?
