My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Arizona
While going to work the other night I briefly became unconscious due to low blood sugar. While unconscious, I ran a red light (or so I'm told) and awoke just before I collided with another vehicle. I was cited by the officer who came to the scene for running the red light. I have never been diagnosed with diabetes. I have never before passed out from low blood sugar. I was not aware that I was even capable of doing so. This was the first time anything like this had ever happened to me. my blood sugar was taken at the scene and proven to be low. Later that night I was seen by a doctor who also agreed that the accident was most likely caused by a hypoglycemic attack.
Although I never actually saw the color of the traffic light, I do not wish to dispute weather or not I ran a red light. I would however, like to dispute the responsibility of running the red light. I do not feel I should be held responsible for a health condition that I was unaware of. My goal is to either get this ticket severely reduced, or dismissed. Mostly I would like to avoid any points on my record. Does anyone have any advice? Do I have any chance succeeding in this?
