For the gun situation to be analogous you would have had to have pulled the trigger intentionally but shot somebody that was standing behind a door you believed there was nobody standing behind. You fired the gun intentionally. You didn't mean to shoot somebody as you were mistaken it was safe to shoot through the door.
Actually, upon giving this more thought, I believe my PEN 20 argument may be stronger than I thought. I did not intend to commit a crime. The crime of which I'm accused, however, is not driving faster than the posted speed limit. VEH 22350 says nothing about posted speed limits. Rather, I am accused of driving at a speed that was unsafe for the conditions at the time of my citation. The officer even testified that I stated during the citation (which I did) that I was driving for the conditions of the roadway and following the flow of traffic. The officer also testified during cross-examination that I had not lost control of my vehicle, nor did he feel he was in danger of being struck by my vehicle when he stepped out into the roadway to stop me. So, his own testimony makes it clear that there was no intent to commit a crime.
I know we've gone way off topic with this, as my original question had to do with citing the transcript, and thanks to those who answered me on that. The ensuing discussion, however, has been most educational, and any additional feedback is welcome.
