Good afternoon. Can you describe the traffic conditions? Were you not able to reduce your speed at all? Did the vehicle have on their emergency lights? What time of the day/night was this at?
Thank you. If you certainly try and contest this. As a defense, you could argue and testify to the traffic conditions and that they prevented you from getting over and outside of the lane you were in. Seeing how it was at midnight, it could be hard to convince the Judge that there was so much traffic that you can not get over after reducing your speed but you could always rebut this and claim that if you slowed down enough, it would and could have created a hazard and a danger in the lane you were in. If you were the DD, you could also have anyone else in the car testify on your behalf, as to the traffic conditions and why you were not able to get over once you saw the flashing lights.
If there was a camera recording, you could demand that the video be turned over so it could be used, in your defense, of the actions you took when reducing the speed and the traffic
Sorry for the delay. You can see if you take a plea deal if they would reduce the points but it is at their discretion. You can appear and ask for a plea and see how they respond and decide if you want to accept it at that time
Hi, is there anything else I can answer or clarify for you?
