Re: 54 on a 40 in Santa Ana, California
Have you figured out what is meant by "Speed Trap Rating = 0" on that website?
My guess is that their definition does not meet the legal definition of a "Speed Trap" which is explained in California Vehicle Code section 40802.
That is a valid code... 22350 is the "Vehicle Code" section; "E/B #2" means you were headed East/Bound in the #2 lane.
Santa Ana is covered under many "traffic and engineering surveys" so the one you need to obtain is the specific survey for that particular stretch of highway. Search this forum for "informal discovery request" and you'll find many threads on the topic. Request your IDR and post the information that is on the survey; I'm sure you'll get some direction as to how to proceed.
Yes, the TBD form that you receive from the court will have a due date that you must submit your declaration by. Get started on your IDR as you will need that before you can develop a viable defense strategy.
Depending on how you requested your TBD, you might want to check with the court clerk as to whether your request was received... If it was, then just wait for the forms to arrive in the mail.
BTW, here's a link to CVC 22350
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
