My question involves vehicle maintenance laws for the State of: California
I received a citation today with citation code 5200(a) V.C with the uncorrectable violation. I bought a new car but failed to put the new plates on. I told the officer that I forgot to put it on but he didn't take the excuse and issued me a ticket. My question is, will I receive a point on my record and is there any way to get this ticket changed to a correctable one? I was thinking of trying to talk to a judge and ask kindly if I can just put my plate on and possible pay the correctable offense. I'm more concerned about the point than the penalty, since I got a ticket about 1 1/2 years ago. I know it was my fault for failing to put it on but I wanted to know if I had any options for this particular case.
Also, how much is the fine for this citation?
Any help would be appreciated.
