  1. Hearings and Trials: Re: No Contest in a Trial by Written Declaration

    I can see online that the court sent the request to the officer on 6/10, when I requested TBD.

    06/10/2019 NOTICE OF INSTRUCTIONS TO ARRESTING OFFICER (TR-210) SENT ELECTRONICALLY TO...
  2. Hearings and Trials: Re: No Contest in a Trial by Written Declaration

    OK so the deadline for my TBD is this Thursday. I plan on delivering my paperwork in person though as last time I mailed something it got lost, even though I sent it certified. Can I ask for traffic...

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

    Thanks for the reply. So on the "Explain what happened" part of the TBD form I should write something like "In the event that the court does not find in my favor in this case, I respectfully request...

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

    ...ok I finally got my discovery from the CHP and it is damning. More damning than expected. What's the easiest way to get traffic school at this point?

    OK I intended to visit the office yesterday and on Wed but it didn't work out so I called today instead. Asked to speak to the Custodian of Records and explained the situation. They told me to call...

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

    Is it possible to see the officer's statement before the deadline for filing my plea in TBD? Both my discovery requests have been ignored (by CHP and DA).

    Thanks!

    Not sure what El Toboso has to do with this but no, not help with a defense per say. Please refer to my original post, which asked about the impact of the failure of the state to respond to discovery...

    Who said I wanted to argue it? Right now all I want is my discovery. If there's no MVARS...so what. I still want to discover the officer's notes; his location when observing the stop sign, etc.

    Whether or not I did it is irrelevant. I'm entitled to my discovery regardless.

    Right, I'm going to request discovery from the DA and if I still get nothing, do a motion to compel.

    I have reason to believe that the officer didn't have a good view of the stop sign as it was...

    Thanks for the replies. I was not previously familiar with MVARS and didn't include it in my discovery request (just put video recording). I'll include it in the request I'll send to the DA. If the...

    Hello yes it's for sure the correct office. I visited the office in person to check before I sent in my request. I showed the person at the front desk my ticket and they confirmed.

    Thanks for the reply. At a minimum there should be the officer's copy of the ticket.

    So what should I do? Ask the district attorney? (It was a highway patrol ticket.) I would prefer to do TWD to...

    I was ticked in Jan 2019 for allegedly failing to stop at a stop sign. I mailed an informal discovery request to the CHP, who after...
  18. Speeding Tickets: Re: How I Beat My California Speeding Ticket

    It's true, I was lucky...but I feel that, by drawing it out, I made a lot of the luck myself.

    Sorry you lost. :-( What happened?
  19. Speeding Tickets: Re: How I Beat My California Speeding Ticket

    Yes. But at speeds 20-30 mph higher...? Have you any references showing that ability to accurately estimate speed at 40-50 mph also reflects an ability to estimate much higher speeds with equal...

    This may be true, they just never sent me any evidence.

    OK, but it's the state's job to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt. All I needed to do was establish reasonable doubt. It's true that, logically, failure to follow procedure does not necessarily...

    10 feet wide is almost as wide as the lanes on the freeway - and I was ticketed at a relatively busy time. The measured speed might be for another car completely.

  24. Speeding Tickets: Re: How I Beat My California Speeding Ticket

    I did look up specs and calculated a beam width of ~10 feet for my situation.

    Lidar *can* be accurate, but the devices have to be used properly. The CHP publish an operating manual and the lidar...
