I have a ton of experience in fighting tickets. In fact I just won my last 2 parking tickets a couple weeks ago. My record for speeding tickets in court is about 10 of 19 dismissed.
First off. Do a trial by written declaration.
IMPORTANT: Send it in towards the latest possible date, you want the maximum amount of time to elapse before you fight it. (i will explain more later).Be sure to look up the California vehicle code in which the officer wrote on the ticket and see if its accurate to this case. If its not, be SURE to put that in your statement. Also look up other vehicle codes that can help your case, like codes regarding traffic, lane changing, following distances, flow of traffic, etc. Be sure to include a map/images with your letter to help the judge get a better idea of the situation described on the officers ticket. Write down EVERYTHING right now from that day...things you remembered him saying, you saying, temperature, traffic, weather, wind, etc. While its still fresh in your mind. Things he said to you may help your case.
If youre found guilty via the letter, send in a request for a trial de novo. Again, do this at the latest possible time (its 30 days here in Hawaii) I forget what it was in California when I lived there. The trial de novo will give your case to a DIFFERENT judge and will postpone the case even further. The reason you want to postpone this case so much is because at the trail de novo, the officer has to appear. His/her memory of the incident will be a distant memory and he will be pretty much reading the notes on the back of the ticket.
So heres the order.
1) trial by written declaration
2) if found guilty, request a trial de novo
I love fighting tickets for my buddies, and ive even accompanied them into court a few times to keep their spirits up. I fight EVERY single ticket because its our legal right to. If you want help fighting this ticket, I will be more than happy to help you. Ill even help you with writing the written declaration.
Some of the tickets ive had dismissed (78 in a 35, 91 in a 55, 41 in a 25mph school zone)
