Re: Can You Still Get Traffic School at Trial De Novo
I don't think Carl suggested that a court will "require" anything... The way I've seen it, it happens just prior to the judge entering the courtroom, an offer is made by the clerk asking "does anyone who is here for trial want to opt for traffic school at this point?"... You can translate that into "either now or never", but (1) I see it as an attempt to reduce the number of cases on the calender for the day and (2) this is the clerk speaking, not the judge.
As to "where?", I have seen it happen in a few courts in L. A. County and one in Orange County.
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
