Okay, so .....i got a ticket =/ I was going 45 ... I was rushing to see the new play 'wicked' ...based off the wizard of oz etc.. It started at 8 and well it was 8:01. Cop pulls me over and says 'you know your going 45 in a 35 zone?' ...he gives me a ticket and since i was in a hurry, i just signed it and took off to the parking lot (which happened to be 2 blocks away grrr) anyway. i look at the ticket and it says that the speed limit was 30! ...but when he told me he said it was 35? ...now i don't live in LA ...does anyone know the speed limit on Hollywood blvd and Orange way? by the Pantasia Theatre area? I'm not sure if i should fight this or not. I mean five miles can add up to my gas money for the next 2 weeks for school. Anyone know anything that might be able to help me in this situation? I live an hour away from LA so i'm wondering if someone that lives close by can tell me what the speed limit is? or a website that i might be able to look at? i looked but didn't find anything that might have the speed limit on there. So i don't know. Is it silly if i fight that the speed limit was 35 not 30 with proof? if it is indeed that? Is there a 'falsification speed limit' that might throw out this speed limit entirely? lol i don't know anything about the law. anyhoo...any help is appreciated...thanks
