My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
I recently got a speeding ticket in california for going 42 in a 25 mph school zone. The time was around 8:30 so this definitely holds up even though I feel as though I was not going that fast. The main thing here is that normally this area is a 45 mph zone and when he gave me the ticket, he told me he was not going to write it as a school zone in order to help my fine. I don't think he realized that there is no extra fine in california for speeding in a school zone since it is treated as a normal speeding ticket, so he didn't do anything to help me. However he left the marked speed limit as 25 mph. So in essence, the ticket makes no sense without saying it was in a school zone because that is what changed the speed limit in the first place. Would i be able to just argue that the normal speed limit is 45 mph and he never claimed it was a school zone? any help would be great, just because i am very confused about the ticket in the first place now.
