My question involves traffic court in the State of: California
Long time lurker, first time poster. Got an unsafe lane change ticket about 2 mths ago. Completed a TBWD and just received notice it was rejected. I am eligible for traffice school. My question is simple. Given the fact I do have the job flexibility to waste a few hours in court, should I bother with a Trial de Novo? Is it worth taking the chance the officer will not show up and the court will dismiss the ticket or is this somehting that only happens in movies
In the event someone answers this thread saying it is worth spending a few more hours on this.... Regarding the Trial de Novo, should I come up with a completely new & different approach than the one used in the TBWD or should I just elaborate (I actually thought I had a pretty good case....). And my last concern regarding this.... if you lose again at the Trial de Novo, can the court revoke your right to traffic school?
Thank you for your time & consideration.
