I received a speeding ticket for going 91mph in a 65mph zone in Bishop County while on my way to Mammoth from Los Angeles. I was clocked with a radar The ticket is marked for "m" (misdemeanor) vs "i" (infraction). I have not fought the traffic tickets before, but got lucky twice when the officer did not show up in court. My last traffic school was more than 18 months ago, so I think I'm eligible, but saw someone posting here that going 25+mph over limit doesn't allow you to take traffic school. Also, the officer cited me for not having my plates on.
Here are the questions I have:
- Is it possible to move the court over to Los Angeles (250+ miles away from Bishop)
- How and when should I file for "discovery" ?
- Is it possible at all to fight the "no plates" citation?
I would appreciate any help I can get on fighting this thing. Never gone through fighting tickets before, so consider me a rookie.
