CONTESTING A ROAD SIGN TICKET (CVC 38300 & CVC 23336):
We know that you would never consciously just ignore a road sign on the streets and highways of California. Stop signs, speed limit signs, yield signs and more, these are all there to ensure that we are able to use these thoroughfares with peace of mind. This is true not just of drivers but also passenger, cyclists and pedestrians. However, getting a ticket for failure to obey a traffic sign could happen completely by accident and you shouldn’t get too stressed out. There may be a way of fighting your road sign ticket, especially if you didn’t actually deserve it.
Some road sign violations in California can really cost you top dollar, so assessing whether you have a chance of getting a road sign ticket dismissed means having the right criteria on hand. For example:
- Was the sign clearly visible or was it obscured by something like a very tall tree or truck?
- Did the traffic officer claim that you were given a ticket because you didn’t stop long enough at a stop sign but you did actually come to a stop?
- Was the sign even the correct size according to regulations?
These are just a few examples of things to assess when building your defense to the court. At the end of the day, laws work both ways and aren’t there just to get you penalized, they are there to protect you too. With the help of the GETDISMISSED system is always your best bet at a successful DIY outcome, whether it be a traffic sign, signal and marking violation (CVC 21460a), a failure to obey a specified sign, signal or traffic control device violation (CVC 38300) or even a failure to obey posted signs on a vehicle crossing violation (CVC 23336).
