I got a ticket for not stopping at a stop sign during a right turn
there was very little traffic and I performed basically a "rolling stop", but it was nothing blatant. if anything, I was driving just as good or bad as the average driver and my "rolling" stop was what any driver who has been driving for about a year would do.
I know it is technically a violation, but it just seems wrong to be ticketed for driving like most people do.
anyway, I requested a trail by declaration and I would like some advice on what kind of defense I can use and what the proper format for filling these out is. this is my first ticket ever and I'm just trying to learn as much as I can about my rights and legal options
thank you in advance for helping me out____________________________________________________________ Thanks mr. kaman and gasner for your responses mr gasner, can you make a distinction between an affirmative defense and an evidentiary objection? perhaps give an example of the two? I think that I will be able to write a sufficiently thought out tbd if you can help me clarify those two points. once again, thanks for you responses, they have helped me a great deal.
