I was given a citation for failing to yield but I have a video of myself stopping twice before entering the roadway, however the camera was too far to get my license plate clearly. Will the video help me get this citation dismissed in court?

A: Possibly. Self-representation is full of problems, because the rules of court, such as submitting evidence are complex.

It would be best to get a public defender, or a traffic lawyer to assist you.

Plus, depending on the court, you may need to move your case to a jury court, and not just leave it at municipal court.
