My question involves traffic court in the State of: California
Hi, I found this forum very useful for information regarding traffic/speeding laws.
Anyways, I received a ticket for going over 65 mph (VC22349a). I filed a TBD in hopes of the officer not turning in his statement. In my TBD, I basically stated that I was innocent, and if found guilty, I request a fine reduction and traffic school.
I received a letter saying that I was guilty and there was no reduction or traffic school option.
Would it still be possible to go into court via a Trial de Novo and request traffic school and/or a reduction? Or better yet, is it even worth a shot?
I really would not like this on my perfect record, insurance mixed with gas prices nowadays in California is not pleasant.
Thank you in advance!
