Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
Just like a speeding ticket for which there is no defense for not knowing that you were speeding, a citation for being in an HOV lane is not capable of being defended based on you not seeing a sign.
Your best bet is to pay the fine and avoid the necessity of going to court if that is an option. There is no lesser offense that this can be changed to so about you can do is accept that you made a mistake, pay the fine and move forward.
I understand that you may be disappointed by the Answer you received, as it was not particularly favorable to your situation. Had I been able to provide an Answer which might have given you a successful legal outcome, it would have been my pleasure to do so.If you have additional questions, you may of course reply back to me and I will be happy to continue to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction.Would you please take a moment to positively rate my service to you based on the understanding of the law I provided by clicking on the rating stars---three stars or more. It is that easy. That is the way I am compensated for having helped you.Thank you in advance. I wish you the best in your future,Doug
I empathize with your predicament, however, if there were signs posted and you just didn't see them, you don't have a legal excuse that will work as a defense to the citation. Minor errors appearing on the ticket don't mean a thing and are not a defense unless for example the time you were caught in the lane was not a time limited by the signs there and the officer wrote in a different time so that you could be cited.
