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.

I have a bit of an interesting situation here.Basically I got into an accident yesterday. This happened in San Francisco, CA. Imagine a*****with a street light and a bus stop on the left as the 3rd lane. It is intersected by another street. There is a large box truck in the right lane (not the bus stop). My vehicle (which is not a bug) was at the bus stop when the large box truck got a green light and made their turn. Apparently my car was on the way because he plowed a side of my car as he was turning.So my question is: whose fault is is this accident according to CA rules?

I was given a ticket 55 in a 45 zone

I was given a ticket for going 55 in a 45 zone in Dakota County, Minnesota in the city of Apple Valley and will go to traffic court in the City of Apple Valley (in which I also live); I have plead not guilty. The officer said I was doing 60 but wrote the ticket for 55. I wonder that I was even doing 55.Here are some particulars to work with:1. There was absolutely no one on the road other than me on the four lane road.2. It was not raining, snowing or otherwise precipitating, the pavement was dry, and the day was perfectly clear with no reduction in normal visibility and no school zone or construction zone anywhere nearby.3. The light ahead .1 mile away was green and I was not attempting to go through a yellow light.4. The nearest speed limit sign that I passed was .2 mile back5. .1 of a mile (~520 ft) from the point of infraction is a 50 mph intersecting road6. .2 of a mile (~1041 ft) further on the road I was traveling the speed limit is 55 mphWhat is really the parody here is that had this been the regular time in the morning that I travel that way, I would have had to be going my supposedly ticketed speed just to keep up with traffic. However, as the lone wolf, I was given a ticket.I am attempting to get a Traffic Engineering Study from the county for that stretch of road as the city of Apple Valley informed me that they do not have a study but that possibly Dakota County does because it is a county road.I have zero violations on my driver's record and would like to keep it that way.What defenses do I have for this situation? And what do I need to do to prepare my defenses?

My 20 year old daughter was cited driving when she fell

My 20 year old daughter was cited for careless driving when she fell asleep and had an accident on her way home from work on a midnight shift. No other cars involved and she was not hurt. She was not speeding either, so I don't think the driving stand safe speed will work. She has already claimed not gully and her hearing is in January. Is there any other course than to just accept the citation, points, and fines?

I was involved in an accident in florida. Me on a motorcycle

I was involved in an accident in florida. Me on a motorcycle her in a vw beetle, so traffic was relatively heavy and I was illegally splitting lanes or white lining on a two lane road, suddenly the vw coming from the opposite direction needed to turn into a store that was on my right so she had to make a left along the two lanes on my side so two cars stopped in both lanes to let her pass but I didn t see her since I was in the middle and she hit the side of my bike, I tore into her bumper and scuffed a line or two of her hood, the state trooper came and told us it was both our faults me for splitting lanes and her for making a turn and having the responsibility of looking for no oncoming traffics since legally those cars don t have to stop and I could ve been a pedestrian on a bike in the bike lane, she said she would just send me an estimate of repairs and I agreed but I just got the estimate and it s $2k money I don t have at all and the estimate is talking about replacing emblems and a hubcap and all this stuff I didn t even touch, what can I legally do?
