My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California
I was asked to pull over by two High way patrol officers yesterday after i exit from the highway.They told me that when i exited the highway, i made a violation lane change. I'm 18 and i just bought my car a week ago from my neighbor. I completed the car registration, yet i haven't got my auto insurance. Actually i was going to get the insurance yesterday and before i got, i was caught by those officers. So i did not have car insurance when i was caught and they wrote that down on the ticket too. They told me as soon as i get the insurance, that one will be fine. I got the insurance today, and i don't know what should i do to fix that problem(to send them the car insurance things or something else?) On the back side of the ticket, it has 6 options. pay the fine; appear in court; contest the violation; correct the violation; request traffic school; request trial by written declaration. And it says "you must do one or more of the following for each violation." I know i should go to the court and i will, but I did not really know what happened when i made the violation lane change, so i don't know what i should do for the contest the violation part. And my friend told me the court would ask me whether i'm guilty or not, i don't know what should i say. And i also want to ask how much is the fine normally? And they say that the courtesy notice may be mailed to address shown on your citation, but i want them to send to another address since i just moved out, who should i call to change the address？
I would really appreciate if you answer my question.
