Re: Fail to Stop at a Stop Sign in Federal Way, but Intersection Has Stop Line 15 Fee
Personally, I would NOT take pictures or maps of the area with me. I would simply state that there is NO such intersection. The judge will have a computer. He/she can use Google Maps and try to locate that intersection. If the judge says that the officer obviously meant 18th Pl and 325th Pl, I would state that there is no possible way for the court to "know" what the officer really meant. The only thing the court can "know" is what the officer SAID. Furthermore, the officer signed -- under penalty of perjury -- attesting to the veracity of the contents. How can it be shown that it is "more likely than not" that I committed an infraction, when the location of the alleged infraction does not exist? But, of course, your daughter must do what she's comfortable with. I'd advise taking her to a few court sessions, just so she can get a "feel" for the place.
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
