Chalk one up for the populace. The thirty two headed Hydra seems to finally been cut down. Yes, I’m talking about the Red Light cameras that “infect” 32 intersections in the City of Los Angeles. I say “seems” because given the fickleness of politicians, these things...
What will happen to your right to a speedy trial? The Sixth Amendment of the United States Constitution guarantees it. It refers to criminal offenses of course but remember that in California, a traffic offense is a criminal offense so…? OK, I may be getting ahead of myself, let me start at...
So recently it was mentioned that I have been using song titles and/or lyrics for my blogs. Yes, it is true but hey, if they are applicable… this is why I have briefly switched to movie titles, in case you ask. A common mistake that some people make is that they assume that if they have a...
Getting a traffic ticket is not a fun thing, we all agree on that. Regardless of whether we deserve it or not, we usually assume that we don’t and it’s “the other guy” who should have been stopped… right? Well, how much more aggravating can that situation be if you...

Well, here’s a subject that refuses to go away. It seems like the City of Los Angeles red light camera program suffered a slight set back this past Tuesday at the Board of Police Commissioners meeting. Although the city council has the final vote on this issue, the police commissioners voted...
… I’m sure you know the rest of that line. Let’s face it, when you get a traffic ticket and you choose to appear in court and “fight it”, you will most likely lose. Barring the officer not showing up (which happens occasionally) you have a very slim chance that the...
We hear this one almost every day. I got caught in a speed trap, don’t drive on such and such streets… they’ve set up a speed trap. Do they exist? Of course they do. Are they legal, afraid not. This is where knowledge of the law comes in handy and why sometimes it pays off to...
