My grand daughter was charged with reckless driving on

My grand daughter was charged with reckless driving on Interstate 26 in TN. She had been driving the normal speed until her friend in the charge noted that her blood sugars were dropping. Friend has had DM II since age 4. Grand daughter did speed to get to a convenience store to get friend some carbs which helps her blood sugars increase. The policeman that stopped her told her she was going 99 in a 65 zone, which does not think she was going that fast, but she told the officer that her friend's sugars were dropping and she needed to get carbs fast. Officer offered to call EMT but the friend declined and just said she needed carbs. The officer never checked on the friend, but saw her only through the drivers side and it was dark outside. They were stopped at the exit my grand daughter was heading for and the convenience store was within 500 feet of them. She was only attempting to help her friend not go into a coma. Do you think the officer acted appropriately or disregarded the medical condition. Also he noted on the citation that her birthday was 8/21/88, not the correct date of 8/21/98.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: OKJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: yes, citation was given and court date set for February 17. Spoke to DA in that county and he was going to speak to the officer involved.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And to clarify, can you tell me what paperwork has been filed?Customer: Tennessee, no paperwork, just the citationJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

My ticket was for 34 mph in a 15 mph school zone. Speed

My ticket was for 34 mph in a 15 mph school zone. Speed limit outside of school zone hours is 30 mph.1. The ticket cites Tennessee law 55-8-152 (L). I don't know what the "(L)" is for, but the text of 55-8-152 says that the reduced speed limit in the school zone is in force "only while children are actually present." There were no children visibly present in the area at the time I was ticketed. Does this constitute a sound basis for arguing for a "not guilty" verdict in court? Or does the concept of children being "present" include inside the school building or inside vehicles delivering them to the school? If the officer's report does not explicitly state that children were present, does this constitute an essentially impossible burden of proof for the prosecution?2. Given that I was cited for 4 mph over the non-school-hours speed limit, would I still be found guilty of speeding at 4 mph over the limit even if the argument in no. 1 above were successful?3. My citation does not say anything about "reckless driving", but it does have the "school" box checked, and Tenn. law says speeding in a school zone is prima facie evidence of reckless driving. So does this mean that my situation is that I currently have only a speeding ticket but if I go to court the judge could find me guilty of reckless driving?
