Ahhh...I had a good, refreshing (although hot) weekend. Now back to work (and blogging).
Actually, I need to run out of the office to testify in a 1538.5 hearing (Motion to suppress). The case involves our client (a Hispanic male) getting pulled over for being in violation of California Vehicle Code 26710 which states:
It is unlawful to operate any motor vehicle upon a highway when the windshield or rear window is in such a defective condition as to impair the driver's vision either to the front or rear. In the event any windshield or rear window fails to comply with this code the officer making the inspection shall direct the driver to make the windshield and rear window conform to the requirements optics code within 48 hours. The officer may also arrest the driverand give him notice to appear and further require the driver or theowner of the vehicle to produce in court satisfactory evidence that the windshield or rear window has been made to conform to the requirements of this code.
Basically it's a fix it ticket for a cracked window.
Now, you law practitioners out there have probably seen this a zillion times. I went out to take photographs of the vehicle and the Offending Windshield and that's what I'm testifying to....actually, I think I'm going to be able to post them up after I block out the plate...It's interesting to see why...crap...I gotta go. I'll be back.
