My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: CA
Hi, I received a ticket traveling on Mission Blvd on May 17th 2016. A wide straight road at 913AM. The officer was in the opposite lane and claims he got me with radar. The ticket is Prima Facie speed. He claims 58 in a presumed 40. The conditions were great that day. Bright, not a cloud in sight. There are other cars on the road so I don't know how he focused on me. It tought to go that fast with the other cars on the road. But it wasn't crowded. He then had to turn around (motorcycle cop) and catch up to me to pull me over.
What can I do when I receive the notice in the mail?
My last ticket was May 2012, I went to court pleaded guilty and they reduced the fine. But I really don't want to pay this ticket.
What are my options? Can i ask for written trial and ask for discovery on what officer wrote on the ticket about me?; obtain info on radar calibration; speed surveys of road; anything..
I have to respond by June 17th, will the officer remember the facts by then? If I do an actual trail, any good questions to ask the officer?
Sorry for so many questions. Thank you for your time.
Oh the ticket is an infraction.
