Should I fight a ticket for "Ran a Stop Sign" with reason for the mistake?

Orlando, FL |

I had accidentally rolled through a stop sign due to a large pickup truck w/ trailer parked too close to the sign in a subdivision. I had honestly not seen the sign because I was avoiding the truck and a man walking around the vehicle.

DOCUMENT THE EVIDENT WITH LOTS OF PHOTOS - THEN SEEK THE AID OF A LOCAL FL TRAFFIC TICKET ATTORNEY - USUALLY INEXPENSIVE & WORTH THE FEE

This is not intended to be legal advise or as legal representation. I am a California personal injury attorney . Be aware that every state has its own statute of limitations; and statutes & case laws that govern the handling of these matters.

Fight it, and if the officer does not show up, move to dismiss.
