I was pulled over for doing 72 in a 55 outside of Drytown, calif. The CHP officer was going the other direction and got me with radar. I was very polite and did not provide any incrimminating information to the officer. The fine is 258.00 and if I take traffic school that at least 100 bucks more. What are my chances for fighting this and if I lose do I still have the right to go to traffic school. Can I request the officers notes on the stop? Here are a couple of items I was working on:
1. The officer is a no show (Preferred)
2. Can I say there was a car passing me on the outside lane if this is not stated on the ticket thus throwing off the radar.
3. Request the records for the radar showing when it was last serviced.
4. If I lose, can I still request traffic school.
Thanks for any and all help.
