    Re: Parking in Bus Zone

    This is why I was asking for the code section. Sometimes what people think the offense is for is NOT what it was really for. If written by hand, not an automated cite system, the verbage can be...

    Re: Parking in Bus Zone

    What code section was cited? Was the curb painted with a color?
  3. Student Discipline: Re: Filing a Grievance or Lawsuit Against a School District

    Whether the coach was "wrong" in your eyes or not is, from a legal perspective, entirely irrelevant. You can complain to the school administration if you'd like, but I suspect it will be of no...
  4. Student Discipline: Re: Filing a Grievance or Lawsuit Against a School District

    As an educator and the father of four sons who have engaged in high school sports as starters and even state ranked through 2018 (when my youngest graduated), with one who went onto college football,...

    Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Stop Sign - 22450(A)

    If the officer's statement has been submitted, and the court will allow you to see the file, yes. You can always go to the court and ask.
  6. Assault & Battery: Re: Minor Wrongfully Charged with Second Degree Assault and Dismissed

    I'm wondering why "6 guys that were "bouncers"" "jumped" him in the first place? What happened that led to that form of intervention?

    I agree that there appears to be no action that can be taken...
  7. Unlicensed Driving: Re: Misdemeanor Ticket for Driving with Learners Permit in California

    So, you received a misdemeanor citation for VC 12500(a) (unlicensed driver)?

    Are you an adult or a minor?

    If only driving on a permit, you're lucky your vehicle was not towed (and held for up...
  8. Police Conduct: Re: Knowingly Filing of a False Report by a Police Officer

    There is a difference between an intentional falsehood (a lie) and an error. Even an egregious error. Along the same vein, the law does not generally mandate that a competent investigation be done...

    Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Stop Sign - 22450(A)

    The CVC lays out the percentages of the BASE fine (typically $35) that each jurisdiction receives. This amount is often in the 25% range. CHP doesn't receive this, of course. It varies a bit by...
  10. Homicide: Re: Can Homicide Charges Be Filed Over a Fatal Accident

    My sincere condolences over your loss. I know that no mere words can possibly make up for such a loss.

    Just thought I'd add a couple of cents to the discussion in way of an explanation. You...

    Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Stop Sign - 22450(A)

    Actually, not true. The local jurisdiction (i.e. the city that employs the officer) receives about $7.50 on the citation that costs you $283 And after taking into account the cost for the officer...

    Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Stop Sign - 22450(A)

    Hardly BS. Loiter near a stop sign sometime and watch the cars that approach. Unless it is an extremely busy intersection, you will find that most people tap-and-go. Back when I worked patrol, on...

    And if there is no MVARS video to obtain? Then what?
  14. Unlicensed Driving: Re: Can a Cop Pull You Over Just Because the Car is Registered to a Unlicensed Driver

    Some agencies have vehicles equipped with plate readers which can automatically obtain the info. In other cases, it's a matter of an officer simply running the plates via radio or an MDT searching...
  15. Unlicensed Driving: Re: Can a Cop Pull You Over Just Because the Car is Registered to a Unlicensed Driver

    I should probably point out that in many states, the RACE of the driver is NOT on their license. In CA it is not. And, with regards to gender, this is very difficult to ascertain from a distance...
  16. Disputing Debts: Re: Ambulance Refused to Transport Me. Charged Me

    That's what tends to happen with the response fees out here. Even the medical rides. Last summer one of my sons had to be airlifted after a collision and the bill was $34,000! They settled for...
  17. Disputing Debts: Re: Ambulance Refused to Transport Me. Charged Me

    Was this a fee for a transport? Or, was it a fee for EMS response? Some jurisdictions in some states have begun imposing fees for medical aid calls even when a subject is not transported. $400...

    Parking Tickets: Re: Green Curb

    If this was a private housing community, a green curb marking for limited term parking or standing should not apply absent some special ordinance authorizing enforcement on private property or upon...
  19. Suspension and Revocation: Re: Got My Driver History. Can I Fix This

    Not quite, LW. The City Attorney in CA rarely is involved in traffic prosecutions. In fact, in CA even the DA is not generally involved. Unless referred to the DA (or in rare cases, the City...

    Assuming a fenced in property, PC 602(m) or 602(o).

  21. Suspension and Revocation: Re: Got My Driver History. Can I Fix This

    It could be that after 3 years the holds are lifted, but you would still have to jump through hoops to get your license back. Not to mention that it seems you have another FTA from 2016 that still...
  22. Suspension and Revocation: Re: Got My Driver History. Can I Fix This

    Absent extraordinary circumstances, a warrant for your arrest should not issue from a failure to appear.

    To know how to address this and clear up any court fines, you will have to contact the...
  23. Trespassing: Re: Neighbor in My Backyard

    Yes, the statute of limitations on trespassing is one year. However, as a low grade misdemeanor it is almost certainly NOT going to be filed or prosecuted. And after 2 months, the urgency will have...

    Traffic Lane Violations: Re: 21651(B) Rive on Wrong Side of Road

    Well, there must be some way, as I am aware of 2 county courts that have heard these in traffic court. I cannot say how, but, they were there. Though, it's possible the law changed since then - one...

    Traffic Lane Violations: Re: 21651(B) Rive on Wrong Side of Road

    Jim, the court can and does allow the DA to file these as infractions. I have personally been present in court on such cases as infractions. I am not sure if it is pursuant to PC 17(d) (which also...
