INTRO & DISCLAIMER
Welcome to my ticket fighting guide, created by JP.
I wrote this to vent out my anger of being unfairly singled-out by
traffic enforcement for no good reason other than minor technicalities.
Prior to perusing the different sections of this guide, you should
carefully read and agree to (whether you want to or not) the following
disclaimer. Your use of this guide constitutes an implied agreement.
This article is no way affiliated with Fight Your Ticket In California
by Atty. David Wayne Brown. It is a good book to read through, though. The title is a coincidence.
This article is being offered free-of-charge. I am not selling
anything and I cannot accept donations. Apply what works; flush what
READ THIS CAREFULLY.

conscious level through the author's research and gathering of
information from various resources.
2. This article outlines what your options are after receiving a ticket and how you can avoid future pieces of paying paper.
3. This article gives an insight into the politics behind traffic tickets.
4. This article offers generalized advice as to avoiding and combating tickets related to speeding, photo enforcement, and equipment modifications.
5. This article is specific for California ONLY. Some information may be helpful for others, at their own risk.
WHAT THIS ARTICLE IS NOT MEANT TO DO:
1. This article is not meant to justify reckless driving in any form.

There are no guarantees as to the outcome of your
traffic ticket. Every case and court is different. My advice may or may
not work. It's up to you to come up with a solid defense. Even then,
you may still lose, especially if you are dealing with a court or an
individual commissioner (judge) who has a vested interest in the
outcome. In that case there is nothing you can do except lick your
wounds and move on. If you wish to appeal, you're on your own as I have
no knowledge about the process.
I am in no way skilled in legal issues relating to cars.
a ticket god. I'm not a lawyer, I don't work for one, nor do I pretend
to be one. Therefore, the contents of this page are merely my opinions
and are not to be taken as any sort of legal advice
. They are not a substitute for consultation with a qualified attorney. Use
this information at your own risk, as there may be erroneous or
incomplete tidbits. If you plan on using this information, double check
the laws applicable to your case. This article applies to California Law only.

California Vehicle Code as laws are frequently enacted, amended,
changed, or nullified.
FOLLOW THE LINKS HEREIN.
I posted them for a reason. The
contents within these links expand in much more specific detail on what
I discuss. It's easy to coast through here with your brain in neutral,
but it will cost you when the time comes to deal with your traffic stop
on the side of the road or your ticket in court. If you're too lazy to
bother reading, you have no use for this article. Those who are serious
about fighting their chicken-shit traffic tickets will peruse every
word of this article and relevant links.
If you don't like what I have to say, don't read it. No one is forcing you.
Inaccuracies about the law aside, moaning and whining on internet
forums about my opinions certainly will not change anything. Now if I
did make a gross error about a driving law, please do let me know about
it - as long as you are someone knowledgeable about motorist legal
issues with firsthand experience. If you are a rasterbating magazine
racer, do not count on me taking you seriously. This article is nothing
more than information. Take it for what it's worth. If I overlooked
something or if something is not quite right, please let me know.
IMPORTANT ADVISORIES WILL APPEAR IN YELLOW BOXES LIKE THIS ONE.
There is more than enough information within these pages to help you
get started. If you attempt to contact me via the forums or e-mail
regarding your ticket, I will ignore your inquiries. Only contact me if
I need to correct or add something. It's nothing personal, but this is
not my day job.
