Hello again, I knew my traffic ticket would come back and bite me.
Court: Alameda County
My insurance rate increased by a couple of hundred dollars due to me having a point on my record. Last year (November 2nd) I had a red light violation and this last February I had a speeding ticket for going 80 in a 65 zone. I paid off all the fees and did traffic court for the red light violation. However I can't do an 8 hour traffic school for the speeding ticket because California law says that I cannot attend more than one traffic school in a 18 months period. I've searched the forums for an answer to clearing the speeding ticket and found that I can request the judge for a 12 hours traffic school.
Is that a possibility? The 12 hours traffic school would turn the 1 point to a zero point violation, but still shows up on the record. Would the insurance rates go up because of that?
P.S. Everyday I've been driving 5 miles under the speed limit and check for speed traps (even though I don't have to.)
