If the state’s largest city cannot prove that drivers were speeding in court, what does that say about alleged violations in Lamont and Bakersfield?
Recession-era staffing and budget cuts may now affect traffic enforcement, according to a report presented to the Los Angeles City Council’s transportation committee. For safety reasons, most traffic patrol officers use radar or Lidar. However, about three-fourths of the city streets have not been surveyed in the last ten years, and under California law, it is illegal to use radar or Lidar on streets with out-of-date engineering surveys. To solve the problem, the City Council wants to hire two new engineers to reduce the backlog and lobby the Legislature to change the law.
Speeding enforcement is a big part of the city’s grandiose Vision Zero, which seeks to end traffic fatalities in the City of Angels. But, “our hands have basically been tied” in terms of speeding enforcement, lamented LAPD Officer Troy Williams.
Handling Speeding Tickets
Defenses like these are especially critical in VC 22350 infractions and other enhanced speeding tickets like in Bakersfield, or on downgrade trucker violations for VC 22407 out of Lamont courthouse based for Grapevine tickets.
An attorney can often get the charges reduced to simple speeding. This infraction has a much lower fine, less of an effect on auto insurance rates, and is a Traffic School-eligible offense, in most cases.
