I received a ticket in December and have requested an extension for a new trial date of April 7, 2008.
I was cited for going 39 in a 25 mph zone by radar. This was a wide residential street.
On the citation the officer wrote under location of incident: Street A North to Street B. The problem with is is that Street B does not intersect with Street A.
I plan on preparing a Trial by Written Declaration and including multiple defenses such as I cannot be guilty due the fact that the location does not exist.
I will also include that I was not driving at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.
I have been doing some research and I think that since the officer used radar, he will have to include the traffic survey in his declaration. Is that correct? Will there be a traffic survey on a local residential road?
Also, I did not have my proof of insurance with me so the officer cited me for 16028(a). I went to the court clerk yesterday to show proof of my insurance and everything was going great until I asked a question about Trial by Written Declaration and that I was thinking about doing it and she would not take care of my proof of insurance. It is my understanding that she should have charged me the $10 and taken my proof of insurance. She said that it has to be done all at once. The officer also checked the no box for correctable violation for each. Is that right? From what I can tell from my insurance, the proof of financial responsibility is correctable. Am I incorrect?
Any advice or information you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
