My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: California
I come from Hong Kong and visited US on Jan 2011. I was caught by the Freeway Control when I was drving from LA to Yosemite (I-5) on 11 Jan 2011 and I just received letter yesterday (17 Feb 2011) to ask me present on the court on or before 24 Feb 2011. I am planning to request for trial by written declaration and would like to collect information from the police concerning the radar/maintenance of radar etc.. As a result, it makes me totally difficult to do what I want to do.
In this scenario, can i ask the court to delay the court date so i can collect more information and what I can do now? (For information, i am not able to present on the court because i will not travel to US in the near future)
