My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: Oregon.
I'm a resident of California. I got a speeding ticket in Oregon within 20 minutes of entering the state, cited for going 62 mph on 55 mph limit zone that was under "construction zone" (i.e. double fine). According to the cop, apparently, ALL motorists must know the state speed limit whether or not you've been in that state no more than 20 minutes for the first time, EVER.
I know I can contest via mail but that sets the court date for which I must appear. My question is... is there a way to do the trial via mail? (Similar to camera red light violation in CA) Let me rephrase.. is there a way to do the whole contesting thing via mail or phone?
PS: I ONLY went to Oregon because of some stupid "visit oregon" ad slogan I saw at an airport. Now I will think twice before actually saying "hmm, I actually want to visit that state now".
