got 4 tickets based on witness reports after accident
i was driving down the road and a lady did not obey a stop sign, attempted to turn left across my path of travel, i moved to avoid her but she kept moving through her turn and we hit. I was issued: a reckless, careless, improper passing and driving at safe speed ticket. i pleaded not guilty. these four tickets were based solely on witness reports, and possibly the police report which stated i was going a minimum of 66 mph in a 40. in court, does the officer have to have the witness in court for their story to be accepted? and what is the best way to go about defending myself? thanks in advance.
