My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
Hi, I got a rolling stop at around 1:25 a.m. section 22450
Now I am not going to try to fight it (most likely would lose) however what can I do to reduce the fine? I am 24 years old (been driving since 18) first traffic violation ever. What exactly can be done? Can I talk to the clerk and see if they can reduce it or its expected to go to court and talk to a judge to reduce the fine? Do I have to pay a fee if I am going to see the judge? Also its said you can fight the ticket and if your lucky the officer won't show up, but do you have to pay a fee for that to happen? I just want to advice to reduce my rolling stop ticket any other advice? Also if I were to go to a judge I would plea no contest? Also how about traffic school I heard its cheap online does that work as taking it as a regular class? (I don't want points in my insurance). Also can I do community hours instead (I am not really working and I don't mind doing that since I am going to mention I don't make much).
