I was actually stoped by an officer for going 95 on a 65 mile zone.
I know that I was going fast but it was because I tried to avoid an accident. a car came to my lane that I tought it is going to hit me, so I scaped to the right lane that I noticed the othe car, from that lane is approching me very fastt, therfore by pressing the gas pedal I wanted to increase my distance with that car, and get to the safty to the other lane. I became so nervious that I probably went for few seconds accelarating untill I changed to the right most lane which I tought was the safest, few seconds after that I was stopped by an officer, that claimed I was speeding. I live in california, can I use the fact that the reason for my speeding was avoiding the potential accident to fight my ticket?
thanks
