My question involves traffic court in the State of: CA
In 2001 I was living in Garden Grove, CA and got a speeding ticket. Shortly after I moved to Washington state and never properly handled the ticket. I didn't forward my mailing address or anything so I didn't hear anything on the topic until I returned to California to live in San Francisco in 2008. I got a CA drivers license again (in May 2008), and when I go to get insurance I'm told my license was suspended in May 2002 and the suspension wasn't lifted until I renewed my license six years later.
Having a suspended license for 2190 days is going to triple my insurance rate, so I want to know if there is any course of action. At face value it seems kind of bizarre; the clock starts ticking from 2008 for something to disappear that happened in 2002, only because that's when I came back to CA? I've been reading through the forums here, and wonder if it is possible to file a Serna Motion since I never appeared in court for the speeding ticket.
