My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: California
While Making a turn off of Pacific Coast Hwy.(Left) I lost control of my car for reasons unknown. (I beleve powersteering failure. or tires)
And i collided with a curb at around 25 Mph the Officer Wrote down 30.
I was the only car that was involved. I however was running from an Suv That was Closely tailgating me. So i Went right thru a Yellow.
Question is The officer Wrote me a tickete for a 22350 Citing unsafe speed and accident.
I have to appear in cort.
What Is involved with this cort appearance. will they charge me with some thing more severe. Am i able to get this reduced or dismissed.
I did not hit anyone else. just the curb had a bad day.
The officer also pointed out that the safe speed for that said turn was around 15 Mph. however this may be true with my car in the out side lane...
I would like to contest this being i was following another Much larger car at a similar speed They did not crash.
