Description of the Event:
I was stopped at a stoplight about to turn left onto the WB onramp of highway 16 in Gig Harbor, WA (NW in the map below). I began to turn left onto the onramp and felt a little bit of a slide and with my awesome driving skills overcorrected twice causing me to lose control and spin and hit the guard rail. So if it makes sense I spun clockwise causing my front left bumper to high the guard rail on the right side of the onramp. I didn't hit anyone or come close to hitting anyone (I'm not entirely sure who called the state patrol). While talking to my insurance agent three state patrol officers pulled up and asked me what happened. I explained and in the end the officer gave me a ticket for driving to fast for conditions(It was wet but not raining). The RCW code is 46.61.400.
So the officer didn't see it happen she just said that she thought that since nobody else had this happen in the last 3 months I must have been driving to fast. I don't believe I was speeding I just don't think I reacted correctly in what should have been a straightforward situation. I just got my first ticket a few months back and got it deferred and am trying to keep this off my record so I don't have 2 tickets and an accident all at once. From what I've read in other posts before I worry about getting a lawyer I should go through what I believe is requesting discovery. Clarification on this would be great. Thanks in advance for any help.
