  1. Ticket Errors: Re: Duplicate Plate in Another State Racking Up Fines

    First of all, change your license plates. Then, some ideas: file a BBB complaint... it seems others have done it; see here. Or turn to your state representative for help. In California, they offer...

    Speeding Tickets: Re: Officer Does Not Know the Speed Limit

    Fastline, can you please post the statute for which you were written up.

    Based on the location of the incident, which should be on the ticket and to which the cop will also have to testify,...

  4. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Ticket for VC 21461 for Something More of VC 21656

    It's not an ad hominem attack... simply a statement of fact. No one knows everything, and it was not my intent to demean you. It is your own posting that is doing it. AN dthe sign was "slow vehicles...
  5. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Ticket for VC 21461 for Something More of VC 21656

    Police officer cannot interpret the signs as he sees fit. He has to go by CAMUTCD definitions and explanations. Granted, he may not know this, just like you apparently don't, flyingron, but that is...

    Wait till they do file... they may not file 2800.1. If they do, consult an attorney.

    Re: Out of Jurisdiction Speeding Ticket

    So is that the general rule? Any cop can issue tickets in his/her county (only)? CHP being the exception with statewide jurisdiction, I assume. Is there some statute that spells that out?



    So...
  8. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Ticket for VC 21461 for Something More of VC 21656

    If there were fewer than 5 vehicles behind you at the time, you are not guilty and absolutely should challenge the citation. Quote the CA MUTCD for the judge (commissioner), in particular this...
  9. Speeding Tickets: Re: What is the Best Thing to Do After Being Cited 22349 B VC

    And that's where you're wrong. You had a very good experience in your case, but this is not necessarily the norm. I have myself received TBD decision notices where judges find you guilty without...
  10. Speeding Tickets: Re: What is the Best Thing to Do After Being Cited 22349 B VC

    I'd be very curious to see how that turns out. At that time O/P would have been convicted, trial over. I don't think the traffic court clerk can give him traffic school at that point; he'd have to...
  11. Speeding Tickets: Re: What is the Best Thing to Do After Being Cited 22349 B VC

    How exactly were you offered traffic school after losing trial by written declaration? It's not that they per se deny it; it's just that the outcome of TBWD is either win or lose. In the latter case,...
  12. Speeding Tickets: Re: What is the Best Thing to Do After Being Cited 22349 B VC

    Note that if you do TBWD and lose, you will almost certainly not get traffic school, no matter what you say in the statement. You will have to either request Trial de Novo and then ask for it, if you...
  13. Speeding Tickets: Re: What is the Best Thing to Do After Being Cited 22349 B VC

    Correct. You will likely be given more time than your court date to complete the traffic school... you just have to pay the fine before that date. You can do traffic school online for next to...
  14. Speeding Tickets: Re: Ticket- Too Fast for Conditions- Good Weather, Middle of Day

    Maybe in your world, but not one where serious, rational people make decisions. O/P said the kid was "on his way home from school". If he drove across two states to get there, I think it would have...
  15. Re: Speeding Ticket Consequences with Employer Insurance

    He did not "conceal" a speeding ticket. It's public record. If he does report the ticket on his own, rest assured it will affect his employment in some way... no points for "honesty". If he doesn't,...
  16. Speeding Tickets: Re: Ticket- Too Fast for Conditions- Good Weather, Middle of Day

    I'm afraid the accident is his fault, and exactly due to the speed being "too fast for conditions." The reasoning is that, had he gone slower, he would have avoided the deer. As for the other ticket,...
  17. Re: Speeding Ticket Consequences with Employer Insurance

    Unless your job contract or job/work manual require you disclose such information to your employer, keep it to yourself. See if there's a way to keep the violation off your record (such as attending...

    Speeding Tickets: Re: Appeal Wa Speeding Ticket

    Appeal. The judge erred in denying your motion to dismiss. If you were driving 40mph in a city, you could have been guilty of either 46.61.400(1) or 46.61.400(2), and they have different statutory...

    Re: Driving While License Suspended in Fla.

    Soooo funnny. Not.



    I'm afraid there's no help, if you indeed did drive without a license. Count yourself lucky you just got one ticket.
  25. Re: Stopping for School Buses in Private Parking Lots

    For most people, that "I must have the last word" thing ends in 3rd grade. Not for you, I see.
