My question involves traffic court in the State of: California
I got a ticket on 1/21/11 for Failure to Yield 21950(a).
Initial due date was set to 3/23/2011.
Submitted extention request and got extended to 5/23/2011.
Paid my bail and submitted my request for the TBD form on 3/16/2011.
Check cleared on 3/22/2011.
Got my TBD form from the court on 4/16/2011.
Filled it out and mailed it on the very same day. (This is where I made the huge mistake. I was too excited to send the letter back to the court that I completely forgot about sending it with certified mail.)
Today is 5/17/2011 and my new appearance date is set to 5/23/2011. I've been checking the mail everyday hoping I will get an answer from the court before the 23rd comes but after reading a few posts on this forum, looks like I won't get an answer for maybe at least another month or so. I checked on lasuperiorcourt.org and the site says the following:
Violation Date: 01/21/2011
Initial Due Date: 03/23/2011
Case Status: Extension
Last Action: Extension
New Appearance Date: 05/23/2011
My question is... should I go pay a visit to the court on the 23rd to see what is going on or should I just keep waiting for a reply from the court? I have proof that the bail has been submitted and that the check is cleared from my bank account, but I do not have proof that I sent back the TBD form since I didn't send it as a certified mail. Any advice? Thanks in advance.
