Apart from any other issues with the survey, here's the BIGGIE: I don't see ANY justification for the 5-mph reduction from 50 mph.
Do a TBD, this may be winnable if the judge actually reads it
Could I even win with that? Because according to the cop's citation I was going 67mph, even with the judge taking 51mph as the max speed I'd still be going 16mph over according to the cop.
Sorry, first time fighting a ticket.
Accident rate is @ 4 times the expected rate. (Now watch Quirky come up with some formula that says "no they can't do that")...
Oh, and BTW, there goes the "speed related collisions" I was talking about elsewhere...
Isn't that close enough for government work?
No Testimony --> No Evidence --> No Case!
^^^^ That is the official accident rate, which looks way below the expected value for any kind of road. Cannot justify the reduction. Additionally, the attached crash sheet itself shows that only ONE of the five accidents had a PCF of "Unsafe speed," which makes the effective rate ~ 0.12!
Now, their "Accident Rate = 2.5" is probably accidents/year: 5 in 2 years = 2.5/year. As for that misleading label and its significance, we would have to ask Messrs. Libring and Espinoza's collective posteriors!
:O so much information. You guys are awesome.
So... from what I've read so far, it looks to be in my favor? o.o
So... just to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I write a check for the bail amount and mark the box for trial by declaration. Then mail it, and I'll get information about the TBD stuff later, which is when I submit my evidence / information?
