    Default Declined a Change of Venue

    My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: CA

    I received a speeding ticket in Sept for going 70 in a 55 on Highway 140 in Merced County. I had read somewhere that you could request a change of venue, but you had to do it at the time of the citation. I kindly asked the CHP officer for a change venue of to my home county, Monterey. The officer that pulled me over had no idea what I was requesting. He said he knew nothing about it and I would have to take that up with the court after I received my ticket in the mail. Is there anything I can do about this? Can I still request a change of venue after the fact?

    No... you can only change venue to the county seat of the county you were cited in IF it is closer to where you live or work.
