My question involves traffic court in the State of: CA
Last summer (2011) In downtown LA I received a citation for walking across the road when the pedestrian crossing said "do not walk."
There was no traffic coming and my car was on a meter. An office on a motor bike came after me and issued the citation.
I didn't imagine it was going to be a big deal.
I have a NY license and I couldn't attend the traffic court so chose to post pone.
I'd just pay but the ticket turns out to be $194 + $10 fee!
So my arraignment is for next week July 12/2012 - is there any ground I can fight it on other than there is nothing posted to say crossing on a red light
is punishable with a fine the way tow away zones are posted?
btw what is an arraignment? Is that different to regular traffic court?
