My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: CA
Driving on the 91 Express Lane with the FastTrak item visible on the driver side. I drove right thru the +3 Lane. Therefore the cop pulled me over on the left side of the traffic. He said I was pulled over for "Failure to Obey Traffic Sign- +3 Lane.
This is my first ticket violation.
I told the officer that I thought it meant for motorists to drive an extra +3 lane but he then told me it really meant for +3 people in a motor vehicle.
Other than that my parents never told me about the rules. Could it be that they are at fault for not telling me?
I want to see if there is a way to contest it. I've been searching the internet to get information on all the violations and policies online but I haven't found anything relating to +3 Lane appealing.
I do not want the points to be on my record so is there a chance if I take traffic school, it will not appear on my record as well as raising my insurance rate?
Do I still have to pay the fine?
