I got a $210 speeding ticket near Issaquah High School for going 30 in a 20 (school zone posted). The sign says "when children present" but it does not have the blinking yellow light. There were not children present at the time. School starts at 9:45am on Wed. and I got the ticket at 9:10am. I was taking my son early and was the only car on the road. No children were in the vicinity. The question is: should I check "contest-I did not commit this infraction" on the ticket since I do not believe the school zone should be enforced and the speed limit would be 25mph, or should I declare mitigating and explain that there were no children present when I see the judge? I was speeding 5mph over the posted 25. How should I plea? Thank you very much.
I have a similar situation to yours. There was no children present on the street but I got a
speeding ticket for driving 25. The police said there's a school bus in the loading zone (which I
found out later when I drove further the bus is at least 300 feet away from me and it's
in the other side of school building and impossible for me to see from where I was stopped).
I checked Contest but haven't received the scheduled date yet. I would like to know what happen
to your verdict....
