My question involves traffic court in the State of: California
I got traffic ticket for straddling in lane unfairly (I had just taken a right turn, I was within while boundry lane etc). The violation was for 2 lanes going in same direction, that road had only one lane going in each direction. I was driving safe. This is my first ever pullover and first ticket. I asked for warning only, cop did not listen. So, I decided to do TBD as I have 2 young kids. My TBD was denied.
I decided to do Trial de Novo as I feel I am innocent. In my discovery I saw officer had told 5 lies, including color of my car to I am almost hitting the cars (not true). This has been giving me nightmares. I called two lawyers who said, cops do lie, and judge will take his side only. I have not much chance.
Now my trial date was coming and today I got an mail by court clerk resting my date to 11-12 days later date. I have gotten only 4 days (6 days if I count from mailed date) warning. I am trying to figure out court rules in changing dates by cops or court, I am unable to find anything. All, I know is, if I wished to changed a date, I would have to tell 10 days prior, should cops/court have same rules? There is no reason given.
I did not agree or sign for this date, do I still have to abide by it? what are legal things I can do? Thank you so much.
