Wicked Ticket from plane on PCH..any tips?

OK, so yes, I was riding on PCH between Muir Beach and Stinson beach and let's say that maybe I was speeding and overtaking on double lines...maybe once...

CHP is parked around a very blind and slow bend and I pass him thinking there's no way he saw me do anything...he pulls me over...yada yada...and points up at the small plane buzzing around overhead.

He was an alright guy, said they were having a crackdown, let me off the speeding and wrote me a ticket for crossing double lines.

Any advice on fighting this?

Thanks all!

I know you'll have to come down here for it and you'll probably get another ticket on your way down or back up.

Do the crime do the time.

A few times when I've fought tickets the cop doesnt show up and it gets dismissed.

Good Luck

You are headed in the right direction,
you have started a thread on the internet,
and confessed to your crimes.

Reminds me of the Duck and Cover days,
and I confessed to looking up,
my first grade teachers dress,
while hiding under the desk.

Duck and Cover,
you can hide in the cell,
after arrest,
because you cannot pay fine.

Anyway when an officer pulls me over and asks,
do you know why I pulled you over?
I respond with what I was called on this site.
I respond,
Because I am a n00b!
They take two steps backwards running
the legal definition of n00b through their brain,
(confessing to being a n00b, or going a tad over the limit has never led to a charge yet) and they let me off with a warning.

This is not legal advice,
and it is alleged,
that I have not been pulled over by an officer,
that is on this site yet.

WTF - Your state is segregated by region as to who can have their pee-pees whacked, or not, by Traffic School ? ? ? Weird.

I have always argued
that if you can get the ticket dismissed,
by paying and going to traffic school.
You should not have been given a license in the first place!
And the MVD persons,
that gave you,
your license have opened themselves to a civil law suit.
For passing a person, and allowing them a license,
that have not been properly educated
on driving a motor vehicle.

I already have an Operators License,
why would I admit, or confess,
and
go to a driving course,
thus admitting,
I do not know how to drive?

I know you all do it for the children,
so they have to,
and do it because it lowers your Insurance rates,
and they only sold me the policy because
I agreed to be reeducated at anytime needed, to lower my rates
and admit guilt for driving.

I thought ignorance
was not a defense to the law,
but it appears to be on traffic tickets,
and they let you off, and educate,
you on the law.

I respect you
for not feeling the need
to be re-trained
on the current license you have.

A Driver License is not a report card
of how many times you passed driving school!

Sorry don't mean to butt in, but I am curious. Why can you do traffic school in SoCal but not in NorCal? Does the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia have completely different rules by region/county?

'Sup, Ed.
I live in the general area of Sacramento, generally considered to be NorCal. Done traffic school a bunch of times.
When your ticket comes in the mail, there will be a menu of choices for payment.
One of those will be to pay the fine, pay an admin fee, and request
to be allowed to do traffic school. YMMV
