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.
