    Question Can I Request Traffic School Even if the Violation is Ineligible

    Hi,

    I got a speeding ticket while travelling to CA. Since I do not reside there, I appealed through a "trial by written declaration", but was found guilty. I requested traffic school but got denied since the violation is not eligible (over 25 mph the posted limit).

    Is there any recourse to request a new trial and appeal to the judge to at least consider granting the request to take traffic school and get this off the DMV record? Since I have been already found guilty and there is no new evidence I have to support my case.

    Was getting late to an interview because I got stuck unexpectedly in traffic due to an accident on the road I was taking.. I panicked and was trying to make up for lost time when I got caught. In my appeal, I didn't really argue my guilt. I honestly stated my case and requested some leniency in the fines. I have to pay the huge fine, but would at least like to see if I can get this off the record.

    Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    No, you're done.
