My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: California
In December of 2010, I was pulled over while driving a vehicle that was not mine for driving without my headlights. I had a North Carolina license at the time (I am still not legally a California resident), and the cop was unable to locate the current registration on the vehicle, writing the name of the last owner on the ticket (even though that was not the legal owner of the vehicle at the time and the DMV will have record of that). He wrote the address on the ticket of my NC license (but it has recently been vacated, I will be handling that soon).
I took the ticket to court to pay it and was told that the cop needed to refile the ticket. The violation code, apprently, had not been the same as the violation that he recorded (driving without headlights, he has written 24400(a)2 and what looks like a VC. How long does he have to refile the ticket before it becomes void?
It was also marked as a non-correctable violation.
