  1. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Cited for Violation of VC 21655.5(B) vs. 23302(B)

    No sir, the sign doesn't say anything about a transponder. It's too bad I can't just paste a picture in here (I have a still from my dash cam video)! It has the HOV diamond logo (with no number...
  2. Other Violations: Re: Ticket for Not Properly Displaying a FasTrak Transponder

    I actually started a new thread here: https://www.expertlaw.com/forums/showthread.php?t=243436

    I did find a definition of "toll road" or "toll highway," too, as mentioned in the thread above. VC...
  3. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Cited for Violation of VC 21655.5(B) vs. 23302(B)

    Thanks, that's what I thought as well. While it may or may not convince a judge, at least it gives me something to use.
  4. Traffic Lane Violations: Re: Cited for Violation of VC 21655.5(B) vs. 23302(B)

    Thanks! I'm just wondering if, in trying to negotiate for the lower fine for VC 23302(b), if these lanes would qualify as a "toll highway." The term "vehicular crossing" is defined (VC 23254), but...
  5. Traffic Lane Violations: Cited for Violation of VC 21655.5(B) vs. 23302(B)

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California

    I was recently cited for a violation of VC 21655.5(b), driving solo in the carpool lane. This was in the I-15 Express Lanes in...
  6. Other Violations: Re: Ticket for Not Properly Displaying a FasTrak Transponder

    Figures... Either I get blasted for replying to an old thread, or I get blasted for starting a new thread when I should have "searched for existing threads on the topic." :stupid: indeed.
  7. Other Violations: Re: Ticket for Not Properly Displaying a FasTrak Transponder

    Hi all,

    I hope you don't mind me resurrecting an old thread. I'm happy to start a new one instead, but since my question is related... here goes.

    I was recently cited for a violation of VC...
  8. Appeals: Re: What are the Chances of Having a Case Certified for Transfer to the Court of Appe

    People v. Marcroft. "Whether or not the People provide a prosecuting attorney, the citing officer who testifies as to the circumstances of the citation is a witness, no more, no less."

    Responding...
  9. Appeals: Re: What are the Chances of Having a Case Certified for Transfer to the Court of Appe

    My appeal was based on 5 or 6 different issues. I argued the two most important ones (use of a speed trap; lack of sufficient evidence to convict) during oral arguments. One of the other issues I...
  10. Speeding Tickets: Re: CVC 22350 on Downhill (Pictures Provided)

    That means he used a Lidar (fancy term for Radar) and that he picked up your vehicle from a distance of 410 feet from where he was positioned.



    Since you said this was your first time being...
  11. Traffic School: Re: How Do I Know if I Can Still Take Traffic School After Losing TBD

    Exactly, that's what I'm saying. The court can't explicitly deny traffic school just because you fought your ticket, but it doesn't have to grant it to you, either.



    I was just saying that in...
  12. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Advice for Trial De Novo - Stop Sign Violation

    You can always request a reduction... the judge may grant it, or may say no. The judge will probably also have read both your TDN and the officer's written statement, so using the same defense in...
  13. Lights, Signs and Traffic Controls: Re: Advice for Trial De Novo - Stop Sign Violation

    It might be worth doing a TDN to see if the officer doesn't show up. But, as flyingron said, your chances are pretty slim if the officer DOES show.

    If he does not, and the court tries to postpone...
  14. Traffic School: Re: How Do I Know if I Can Still Take Traffic School After Losing TBD

    If the court offered you the option to take traffic school before you did your TBWD (i.e. it was indicated on the Courtesy Notice you received), then opting to fight does not (or should not) make you...
  15. Other Violations: Re: Ticketed for Plugging in a Cell Phone While Stopped at a Traffic Light, VC 23123(

    You could conceivably argue that if the phone was dead, you could not have been "using" it. Plugging a vacuum cleaner in to a wall outlet is not, in itself, using the vacuum. You're not using it...
  16. Appeals: What are the Chances of Having a Case Certified for Transfer to the Court of Appeals

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
    (County of San Diego)

    Hello Experts,

    Starting a new thread, because this doesn't have to do with forms as I was asking about...
  17. Appeals: Re: How to Appeal a Traffic Ticket to the Court of Appeals

    Thanks! The CR-142 is what I filed last year when I was appealing the original trial court's decision. I was hesitant about it this time, though, because it specifically mentions the "trial court,"...
  18. Appeals: Re: How to Appeal a Traffic Ticket to the Court of Appeals

    Thank you very much! Your response was most helpful. You are correct, the ticket was not a felony. Obviously, I'm not well-versed in legal matters; otherwise, I wouldn't be having to ask these...
  19. Appeals: Re: How to Appeal a Traffic Ticket to the Court of Appeals

    That logic is as flawed as that of the Superior court. Just because something was done doesn't mean it was right.



    Your confidence is inspiring.



    Many others to whom I have spoken about...
  20. Appeals: How to Appeal a Traffic Ticket to the Court of Appeals

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California

    Greetings,

    I appealed a traffic ticket I was issued in San Diego on January 2016. My court trial was in May 2016, I...
  21. Appeals: Re: Properly Citing Audio Transcript, Case Law, and Statutes

    I see your point. But it sounds like it's kind of open to interpretation, too. :)
  22. Appeals: Re: Properly Citing Audio Transcript, Case Law, and Statutes

    I've read that one before. :) That case covers the question of whether or not the lack of a prosecutor is a violation of due process, and the conclusion is that it does not. It does not touch,...
  23. Appeals: Re: Properly Citing Audio Transcript, Case Law, and Statutes

    November 21. (My wife's birthday...) I was planning to send it on the 14th, because I'll be out of town the week of the 7th. I'm going to have her serve the opposing party's copy (since she is not...
  24. Appeals: Re: Properly Citing Audio Transcript, Case Law, and Statutes

    Thanks, that Simpson case is actually very helpful. I believe it underscores what is already defined in PEN 16.



    If asked, I would not answer Yes to that question. And as such, without the DA...
  25. Appeals: Re: Properly Citing Audio Transcript, Case Law, and Statutes

    I intended to drive 45 MPH, which I believed was the speed limit. I wasn't looking at my speedometer at the time I was stopped, so if I was driving faster, I hadn't intended to. If a response...
