My wife got a ticket for failure to yield to a pedestrian. I told her to reschedule the court date, and go to court if the cop does show what should she say to get the ticket knocked out or down. She has no other tickets before.

Question: I recievieved a letter for a failure to obey a traffic control device. (Running a photo enforced red light) from the video it is clear that thedeiver was following a large truck the light turned red while vehicle was already in the cross walk (tires and nose in pedestrian cross walk as it turned) driver proceeded with a right turn as it was unsafe to stop in crosswalk. Photo send to me is of a female of similar build and facial structure wearing large dark sunglasses as well as visor obscuring top of forehead. I sent a letter to court as not guilty based on limited evidence. I have been set a court date in a month. I have the option of hiring an attorney if; I don't the cities attorney will NOT be present at trial (not exactly sure what that means). If you could clarify the role of the cities attorney and advise me if I shou contact an attorney Id appreciate it.

Vehicle Code violation: I was photographed at two separate

Vehicle Code violation: I was photographed at two separate intersections, within 50'0" of one another, making a right turn on a red light. I have always understood that a right turn after a full stop at a red light was legal in California. Evidently not.I went back to the same intersections today, and was able to observe that there was signage at both intersections which prohibited making a right on red after coming to a complete stop.These signs were not visible at 10:45p.m. on the night of the incidents in question. No doubt they were present, but it is difficult to obey signage which is at a great distance or which cannot be seen because the first photo enforced signal was so extremely bright as to cause a lack of visual clarity.
