    Re: Trial De Novo Procedure

    When officers write statements for trial by declaration, they basically open a pre-made word document and fill in the blanks with whats on your citation. Then they print it out and send it to the...

    Re: Court Denied Dismissal Over Errors

    This isn't really a valid defense... if the court fixed the citation on your court notice, then they fixed the error and it's done. It happened to me before too - officer gave me a completely wrong...
  3. Speeding Tickets: Re: California Speeding Ticket - Best Defense

    Absolutely. If you read 22350 again, you'll see it basically says, "Whatever speed you drive at, must be safe for the conditions." So if it was a clear and sunny day with light traffic, few...

    Motions: Re: Speedy Trial Rules

    82 +/- 2, 441'
    Which means 82mph, plus or...

    Trial De Novo. If you lose the trial by declaration (and you probably will), you can request a brand new trial in front of a judge. Search the forums for more info on TDNs.

    Hearings and Trials: Re: Trial by Written Declaration - Due Dates

    Actually, I think the officer doesn't receive any notice for the TBWD until you turn yours in. Once the court receives yours, it will send a notice to the officer. Then he'll turn his in.

    Speeding Tickets: Re: Eligibilty for Traffic School

    Wow, what a coincidence, exactly 18 months apart, haha!

    I think you're the luckiest speeder in CA... if your first citation on 10/04/2009 is counted as Day 1, then the last day of your 18 month...
  8. Speeding Tickets: Re: Just Want Some Opinions on Fighting a 22349(A) in California

    Yikes!


    Ah, well that's no surprise I guess. In Berkeley all street parking needs to be paid for, either by permit or meter. And if you park and don't pay, one of the dozens of parking...
  9. Speeding Tickets: Re: Just Want Some Opinions on Fighting a 22349(A) in California

    Yeah I know they don't get any of the money directly, but when there's more money in the state funds, the state can spend less of it's own money on law enforcement/traffic related things, which means...
  10. Speeding Tickets: Re: Just Want Some Opinions on Fighting a 22349(A) in California

    Update: Just got back from court, and yes, guilty! Made my arguments, but it didn't matter. Of course, I already knew the verdict the moment I saw the officer waiting outside the courtroom before...

    Good points. However when I turned in my request for a trial de novo, the clerk simply assigned my arraignment/trial to be on the same day. I didn't request or waive anything... after I handed in the...

    Just wanted to jump in and say I also got a 22349a, on SR-24 westbound! Also with lidar! It was probably the same location too - near 51st street. I wonder if it was the same cop.......
