My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
I got a ticket for driving with my headlights off yesterday. It was a less than a block from where I started, since it was a well lit area, before I could realise the headlights were off I saw the cops behind. I know I made a mistake, I have been driving for almost 8 years and this is my first ticket. I understand I made a mistake and dont mind paying the fine. My questions are
1. Can I get any leeway if I go to the court
2. How much is the fine for a ticket like this
3. Will my driving record help in reducing the fine
4. The traffic cop said if i go to traffic school u can take the point off the record. If contesting in the court can I get the point taken off my record.
I really dont have a defense, if the lights were off the lights were off. I just wish he could have given a warning. Just mad that after all these years I get a ticket for headlights being off.
Any help?? thanks in advance.
