My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California.
I recently got a speeding ticket driving 51 mph in a school zone for 25 mph. The street itself is actually 35mph with a sign that says 25mph when children are present. I received the ticket on Tuesday at 11:30AM, where there was absolutely no children present. I also have a note from the school official saying class is indeed in session at that given time.
My question is, since I am at 26mph over and the traffic school cutoff is 25, can I fight it to get it reduced and attend traffic school? I don't care about paying the ticket, I just don't want it on my record.
