Bucket List Bonanza
Well, we made the bucket list trip of a lifetime traveling through Yosemite
and Death Valley National Park on our way to Vegas. Most people don’t
even see one National Park in a lifetime and went to two in just a few
days. Our trip included a few days in Las Vegas, the great food, entertainment,
and of course the slots! From the peaceful splendor of Yosemite and Death
Valley to the excitement and bright lights of Vegas to the boring highway
through the Mojave National Preserve at night, cruising along I-15 heading
home to Ventura and then the sudden distress of flashing lights and sirens
in the rearview and the worries of traffic court.
Up Next, Traffic Court
And so, our fabulous, once in a lifetime journey will take a detour for
our last stop at traffic court all because we were doing the speed limit
while towing a recreational trailer. I had no idea I was limited to 55
mph when everyone else is allowed to go 65 or 70. The police officer said
that is a “Basic California Law”. Where does it say that and how is a casual driver and trailer
tower supposed to know this? I mean, we have had this trailer for five
years and this is only the second time it has even been out of the driveway.
I know ignorance of the law is no excuse, but it’s the only one I have.
Hiring an Attorney
I have never needed to hire a traffic defense attorney and did not really
know where to look, so I did a Google search and was amazed to find so
many traffic ticket lawyers and their outrageous claims. Later that day
I was having coffee with a friend and I was telling him about our trip
and of course our misfortune. He said right away, you need to call Bigger
& Harman. Not knowing the number, I searched Google for Bigger &
Harman and found pages of reviews and comments on a Yelp page. What caught
my eye, more than all the comments from people they had helped and one
guy complaining about having to pay his fine, was that they only practice
in traffic court. That’s all I need; I don’t need advice about
divorce court, just traffic court.
Mr. Bigger was very easy to talk to, he told me to call him Mark, but I
was raised in a military family and have never been able to do that. Anyway,
he gave me the straight answers I needed without all the legal jargon
and agreed to represent me in traffic court next month. He says there
are no guarantees, but he has some ideas and I appreciate that. I don’t
want to pay the $520 fine or lose the good driver discount on my insurance
for three years.
If you believe you were wrongfully ticketed, you’re looking at a
suspended license due to an accumulation of points, or need representation
because you were named in a police report as the at-fault driver in an
accident, give us a call, 661-349-9300 or email
firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss a plan of action before moving forward. The judge may not always
see it the same as the traffic officer.
