VICTORY ONE: Constitutionalist beats seat belt ticket through the mail - Read this short article to see how easily one can fight and beat a traffic ticket through the mail in California. Jan. 18, 2009

VICTORY TWO: Defendant wins stop sign ticket through the mail using 'TRIAL BY DECLARATION'

VICTORY THREE: Freedom advocate beats third traffic ticket through the mail (This was John's second seat belt ticket victory, Oct. 25, 2010.)

VICOTRY FOUR: Ca motorist beats fourth traffic ticket through the mail (Corona red-light camera ticket- court documents on page.) Feb. 15, 2013

VICTORY FIVE: California Motorist beats Seat-Belt Ticket Through the Mail Using Constitutional Argument June 19, 2013

Congratulations to John on all his victories, defeating the revenue agents! Here is how to file a TRIAL BY DECLARATION in California. The excellent free website has all the information California motorists need to beat their tickets. I first found the site in 2001 and have beaten about 15 tickets since then; one in California Superior Court of Appeals, in which a three-judge panel ruled for me and overturned a phony speeding ticket conviction. If a California motorist loses the trial by declaration, they are entitled to a brand new trial (not an appeal) called a TRIAL DE NOVO. This is all spelled out in the California Vehicle Code. It is truly a piece of cake. Countless family and friends of ours have beaten tickets using these methods, by simply invoking the CA vehicle code and exerting their right to due process and the presumption of innocence. Even my 19 year old niece, who weighs less than 100 lbs. and had never even been to court in her life, has beaten 3 tickets- the first three she ever got: a stop sign ticket, a seat belt ticket, and a parking ticket. site is great and Geo McCalip should be applauded for his public service. Here is an interview with McCalip from a few years ago.

The following is an open letter to the city of Pomona, CA regarding the case of Mohammed Abdullah.
