My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Southern CA
Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and just had a quick question which I'm sure has been asked plenty of times before so please be nice and give me break if I'm re-posting anything.
I received a ticket on Jan 21, 2011 at 9:00 at night on the 60 freeway for going 80 on my motorcycle. As a note there was no traffic. It's a 22349(A) VC (exceeding 65 mph).
I waited until my "Appearence Date" which was April 4, 2011 and I went online and scheduled a court date. The Best court date I could get was November 11, 2011, which is nearly 11 months after the date of the violation.
Isn't this a bit excessive, isn't there something about a speedy trial? Or does that not apply to traffic court, or my situation. Seems like this would be a pretty easy ticket to beat in my opinion.
