My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: California.
I received a speeding ticket for going 100 mph in a 70 mph zone around the Barstow area early January. The officer wrote 100 mph and indicates he used a Lidar gun. I received in the mail that my Mandatory court date is March 2, 2011. Would this be the day I would be appearing before a judge? I'm extremely nervous and noticed many mentions of a licence being suspended because of this infraction(22348(B) VC-1). Is there some way I could avoid the licence suspension and possibly gain traffic school as I'm on the threshold of this charge.
I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I remember the drive was uphill and the office was sitting just over the crest of the hill. I clearly saw him and was already on the brakes when he came out to pull me over not 1 minute after.
