My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California (Los Angeles)
I was cited by the CHP for entering the 10 West FWY at Fairfax in the carpool lane. My court date is next month. Please let me know if my defense will hold water in court.
As noted below, I entered the FWY in the metered lane after the light turned green. I then crossed the dotted white line and proceeded to enter the FWY in the right lane. The CHP officer was in the shoulder far from the light and noted she saw me enter the FWY in the carpool lane. However, based on the curve of the on-ramp and where she was sitting, I do not believe she could have seen which lane I entered from. She only assumed I ignored the light and entered in the carpool lane.
Do I need to bring any other proof to court to show reasonable doubt? Should i try to park my car in the shoulder and get a picture of my rear view mirror to show that you cant see the light? Thanks!
