How to fight 22350 vc speeding tickets: If you received a speeding or other traffic ticket, it does not mean that you deserved it.

If you plan to fight 22350 vc speeding tickets, here are some approaches that can be effective:
How to fight 22350 vc speeding tickets by challenging the officer’s observations
In many cases, an argument can be made about whose version of the facts is more accurate. For example, if you were cited for speeding, who wins the case will depend on who the judge believes. Unfortunately, in a typical court room setting, the guy wearing the badge usually wins, unless you can cast real doubt on his ability to accurately perceive what happened. This is why a Trial by Declaration should always be the first step to fighting your 22350 vc speeding tickets
How to fight 22350 vc speeding tickets by challenging the officer’s subjective conclusion
In California, with many tickets, it is possible to challenge the officer’s view of what happened. This is particularly likely in situations where an officer must make some type of subjective judgment as to whether you violated the law or not. For example, when an officer gives you a citation for making an unsafe right turn, you may be able to argue that your actions were “safe and responsible” considering the existing traffic conditions. It will most likely help your case if you can illustrate the facts that show that the officer’s location was not optimal to accurately view what happened.
In California, deciding whether it is safe to exceed the speed limit is a circumstance where a subjective judgment must be made. That’s because in California the posted speed limit is not an absolute limit but only creates a legal presumption as to the safe speed for that road(prima facie speed limit). Additionally, traffic surveys has to be done, every five years, in order to support the posted speed limits. This raises the possibility of challenging the officer’s judgment by proving it was safe to exceed the posted limit given the road condition and other prevailing factors. Ticket Ninja CA are experts at preparing your Trial by Declaration so that you can take advantage of these and other methods that the law has provided for you.
How to fight 22350 vc speeding tickets by proving your conduct was a “Mistake of Fact”
Judges are allowed some leeway in considering circumstances beyond your control. If you can show that you made an honest and reasonable mistake, a judge might find you made a “mistake of fact,” meaning your speeding ticket should be dismissed.
Here are some examples that can help you get out of 22350 vc speeding tickets :
- You had to momentarily increase your speed in order to safely make a lane change.
- You had to momentarily accelerate in order to get out of a dangerous situation.
How to fight 22350 vc speeding tickets by proving your conduct was “Legally Justified”
You may also argue that your actions were “legally justified” considering the circumstances of your alleged violation. For example, if you were charged with driving too slowly in the right lane, it is a legal defense in all states that you had to slow down to make a legal right turn. In this situation you do not have to deny that you were driving significantly below the speed limit and causing vehicles behind you to slow down, but you can offer the additional fact that legally justifies your otherwise unlawful action.
Here are some examples:
Driving in the right, or slow, lane, you are boxed in from the back and the left side by speeding cars. To avoid colliding with a car entering the highway from the right, you accelerate well beyond the posted limit.
Because there is a car just to your right, you briefly speed up to avoid being rear-ended by a super-aggressive big rig that is tailgating you. Once you are in the clear, you move to the right and resume a legal speed.
You sped up to avoid hitting another vehicle, pedestrian, animal, or other unexpected obstacle. If you had failed to take an evasive action, you would have been at high risk of being involved in an accident.
