  1. Hearings and Trials: Re: Do I Have a Case

    With the disclaimer that I'm not familiar with MA law, in general, if the officer spotted you speeding within his jurisdiction, he is allowed to pursue you and pull you over outside his jurisdiction.
  2. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: When Does an Exit Lane Become an Exit Lane

    Knowing that TG and I disagree on this, I'll point out that the above disclaimer regarding position, location, use, etc. applies only to the example figures, and not the standards themselves. In that...
  3. Speeding Tickets: Re: Serial Number of LIDAR Not Recorded on Ticket

    NONE, as ThatGuy has explained.

    If you need that info, you should be able to get it via discovery.
  4. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: How Can I Fight a Wrong Citation

    Pedestrian rules (and signals) don't apply to bicyclists, even if they have been riding on the shoulder/sidewalk.

    Ticket Errors: Re: Officer Marked Wrong CVC

    Police officers occasionally make "wrong code" errors, and if uncorrected, these may well result in a dismissal at trial (because the court has the "wrong" charging documents too). However, note that...
  7. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: 2 Tix: Crossing Carpool Lanes in Anaheim, California and Red Stop Light Camera Ti

    I was just curious. So in the end, if the photo doesn't match, it's either "rat the driver out or be convicted"?

    Traffic Court Issues: Re: Demurrer and is a Traffic Infraction a Crime

    Sorry to bump this old post, but all the misinformation by OP seems to be confusing newbies, so here's the gist (most of which was said earlier):


    Most traffic infractions (excluding parking)...
  9. Hearings and Trials: Re: Vehicle Code 40513(A) Filing of Verified Complaint in Case of Failure to Appear

    Defendant cannot, because defendant missed VC 40513(b) (it's right below (a), btw), which says that 40513(a) does not apply if the citation is on a form approved by the Judicial Council (they all...
  10. Traffic Court Issues: Re: Courtesy Letter Received Conflicts What Cop Said/Promised

    Well, technically the demurrer is mutually exclusive of the warning and based only on the fact that the offense "ADV 22101(d) CVC" violates the PC 952 requirement since it is not "in any words...

    Ticket Errors: Re: Missed Court Date -- No Summons

    This whole scenario and your responses sound quite bizarre, to be frank. Registration involves submitting a form and other documents, along with the fee, to the DMV; you can mail it or go to a local...
  12. Speeding Tickets: Re: California 10 Freeway Speeding 80mph and Traffic School

    If you have no courtesy notice, howd you figure out the bail amount? In any case, I'm your situation O would go to the court (clerk counter) in person, pay bail and ask for traffic school before the...

  14. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: 2 Tix: Crossing Carpool Lanes in Anaheim, California and Red Stop Light Camera Ti

    Well, good luck with committing perjury, then!

    You can lie, stomp your feet, put your fingers in your ears and do whatever else to claim there is no evidence, but as I explained, it is NOT...

    Speeding Tickets: Re: Citation for Excessive Speed

    20 mph above the limit, or was 20 mph the limit? What did your son "guesstimate"? Did he tell the cop he was going 20 mph over!? Post a redacted copy of the citation.
  16. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: 2 Tix: Crossing Carpool Lanes in Anaheim, California and Red Stop Light Camera Ti

    What do they do with those cases then? Since infractions are criminal, if the photo and person don't match, nothing except coercion/intimidation can compel a defendant who asserts the Fifth Amendment...
  17. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: 2 Tix: Crossing Carpool Lanes in Anaheim, California and Red Stop Light Camera Ti

    As PTPD22 explained, officers typically do this zig-zag in front of traffic in order to slow it down because of some issue ahead. Now, suppose the officer saw you in the carpool lane at some point....

  20. Traffic Court Issues: Re: Courtesy Letter Received Conflicts What Cop Said/Promised

    Can't double dip traffic school; even if the court allows it out of ignorance, DMV will NOT mask the point and your insurer will laugh all the way to the bank. Rules changed in 2011, before then the...

    Other Violations: Re: Driving Without Headlights on

    No, you cannot take traffic school for this violation even if you want to. Don't panic, this sort of thing on your record is hardly likely to set off alarm bells of you are background-checked ;)
  22. Traffic Court Issues: Re: Courtesy Letter Received Conflicts What Cop Said/Promised

    You are correct in that T31 is a SF city ordinance, no points, just a fine; VC 22101(d) carries a point. As far as T31 goes, if you want to fight it, you can read all about it in this thread.

  23. Other Violations: Re: Caltrain Fare Evasion Charge, PC 640(C)(1)

    As explained ad nauseam, there is no TBD process for this violation. You'll have to go to court. Gossip on Yelp seems to suggest that SF courts are open to reducing fines significantly, San Mateo...
