My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: California
Can my citation be dismissed if it was written incorrectly? Also, the officer did not witness the accident and issued me the citation based on my statement and the damage to my car. There was no visible injuries to either of the drivers.
After reading a few forums, I realized my citation might have been written incorrectly. Can the violation be dismissed based on this?
(what the citation states)
Speed Approx. 30
P.F./Max. Spd. 0
Veh. Lmt. 0
I believe the max speed and vehicle limit were written incorrectly. The posted speed limit was 35.
What the officer told me was that the safe speed was 0 because if I was going 0 I would not have hit her.
Can I contest the ticket because it was cited incorrectly? The car in front of me quickly changed lanes to avoid the stopped car in front of her which I in turn hit.
I don't want to incriminate myself by stating what I think the citation should have been. I don't think the citation should have been for unsafe speed, when I go to court to contest will they reissue a new citation for what I thought it should be? (following too close)
I would like to get the citation dismissed based on an incorrect violation code, but will I defeat my purpose because they may issue a new citation for the right violation code?
