My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: CA
I had a speed ticket back in 02/09; the speed was 75+ on a 70 highway 5.
The officer didn't give me the chance to look for my insurance card. I ended up with a speed ticket and unverified insurance. few months later, i called the Fresno Court and asked about my ticket. i was told that nothing was under my name. I never received any notification from them. last week, i received a collection agency bill asking me for 1308$. i called the court and they told me that i have to pay the ticket and that i should have called and kept checking with them
I was informed that i have to pay 1004$ and submit a civil assessment to the judge. How does this work?
i feel really sad that i can't proof that i never received anything from them. I admit my fault regarding the speed but it is very unfair to penalize me with 1300 which i don't have. is there anyway to pay the original amount with a proof of correction. I am willing to pay the ticket but i have a full coverage insurance and i find it unfair to pay a ticket for something i already have.
