i got a speeding ticket (by laser) over memorial day weekend in delaware county ohio construction zone for doing 72 in a 55 but there was no work being done - no workers on site. i have not paid the ticket and i have a court date next week. i did not take the court date the officer put on the ticket, i asked for an extension. i heard in ohio if there are no workers on site they can not double fines. the regular speed limit is 65. the officer checked on the ticket traffic was light but it was really more moderate to heavy since it was memorial day weekend and there were cops pulling people over everywhere along the highway. how can i get this dismissed?
so you don't know about ohio law concerning construction zones if no one is working at the time?
what does attack the face of the citation mean?
i have a couple friends who are lawyers (not traffic lawyers) and they both said i do not need a lawyer for a speeding ticket. why do you say i need one?
maybe fight was the wrong term. i am looking to get it dismissed without going to trial and i thought you could give me some solid ways in which to do that.
is a diversion program the same as traffic school? i am familiar with traffic school.
so there are no tricks of the trade you can divulge that would make an easy dismissal?
while i appreciate your time, the info you gave me was info i already knew. i do not think i got my money's worth but i guess i will be charged anyway.
thank you for your time.
