if possible, get as much info as you can from ticketassassin.com. that site deals mainly with california law. i was able to fight my redlight ticket using that site, they had an "example" that sounded very sophistamucated. needless to say i won the case. anyways i think the site is a pay site now, but see if you can extract something from it. if i find something, i'll post.
*edit: you could use either of the following laws to help fight your case.
The Basic Speed Law, CVC 22350, states that you must always drive a safe speed for conditions. These conditions include: weather, visibility, traffic, and the surface and width of the highway. If traffic is moving at 80 mph, it is not safe to drive 15-20 mph slower than this speed. To match the speed of traffic in this situation does violate the Maximum Speed Law. However, it may be necessary to travel above 65mph to obey the Basic Speed Law and to avoid being rear-ended
The maximum speed law, CVC 22349(a), is very simple. It states that it is illegal to travel above 65mph on any California highway (with the exception of highways posted at 70mph). So technically, if you drive at 66mph you are just as guilty as if you drive 100mph. However, you are also bound by a host of other laws such as the the Basic Speed Law, CVC 22350, and the Minimum Speed Law, CVC 22400 when you drive on any California highway. The Minimum Speed Law states:"No person shall drive upon a highway at such a slow speed as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic...."
