    Default Ticket Shows Different Code Than Courtesy Notice

    My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: California
    My ticket shows a 22350 VC code with construction zone in parenthesis below. The officer told me he was giving me a break by not writing a construction zone ticket. The courtesy notice shows a 22350 CZ violation. Should I fight this one? I was just leaving the zone when I got the ticket.

    The ticket is the official charging document, not the courtesy notice. The judge will have the court copy of the citation in front of him/her at the time of your trial. If your ticket said CZ, you could argue that no such section exists. That does not seem to be the case thou.

    I don't see where the problem is... You were cited for a violation of CVC section 22350 which is one of the codes that could be charged as to have occurred in a construction zone (as per CVC section 42009(b)(6) and the courtesy notice show the same; a violation of CVC 22350 which you are being charged with with the addendum that the violation did occur in a construction zone as per CVC section 42009(b)(6).

    Just because the officer did not cite you for CVC 21367 or 22362 does not mean that a 22350 could not be charged to have occurred in a construction zone.
    42009. (a) For an offense specified in subdivision (b), committed by the driver of a vehicle within a highway construction or maintenance area, during any time when traffic is regulated or restricted through or around that area pursuant to Section 21367, when the highway construction or maintenance is actually being performed in the area by workers acting in their official capacity, the fine, in a misdemeanor case, shall be double the amount otherwise prescribed. In an infraction case, the fine shall be one category higher than the penalty otherwise prescribed by the uniform traffic penalty schedule established pursuant to Section 40310.
    (b) A violation of any of the following provisions is an offense that is subject to subdivision (a):
    (1) Section 21367, relating to regulation of traffic at a construction site.
    (2) Article 3 (commencing with Section 21450) of Chapter 2 of Division 11, relating to obedience to traffic devices.
    (3) Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 21650) of Division 11, relating to driving, overtaking, and passing.
    (4) Chapter 4 (commencing with Section 21800) of Division 11, relating to yielding the right-of-way.
    (5) Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 22100) of Division 11, relating to turning and stopping and turn signals.
    (6) Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 22348) of Division 11, relating to speed limits.
    (7) Chapter 8 (commencing with Section 22450) of Division 11, relating to special traffic stops.
    (8) Section 23103, relating to reckless driving.
    (9) Section 23104 or 23105, relating to reckless driving that results in bodily injury to another.

    (11) Section 23152, relating to driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance, or a violation of Section 23103, as specified in Section 23103.5, relating to alcohol-related reckless driving.
    (12) Section 23153, relating to driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance, that results in bodily injury to another.
    (13) Section 23220, relating to drinking while driving.
    (14) Section 23221, relating to drinking in a motor vehiclewhile on the highway.
    (15) Section 23222, relating to driving while possessing an open alcoholic beverage container.
    (16) Section 23223, relating to being in a vehicle on the highway while possessing an open alcoholic beverage container.
    (17) Section 23224, relating to being a driver or passenger under the age of 21 possessing an open alcoholic beverage container.
