My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of:CA
I got a ticket for not stopping at red light on a two dedicated lines for right turn. As far as I remember, I usually stop at red light before proceeding. Based on that I requested a TBD and mentioned that I stopped at red light before turning right. But my TBD was denied. I got similar ticket(camera ticket) three year back for not stopping at red light on dedicated right lane. I am not a careless driver and I understand that I need to be more careful everytime when taking a right turn.
Now I want to know my options for this ticket after my TBD was denied. I already paid the bail amount-$490 . Can I request a trail (not the Trail de novo) and appear in court and plead guilty and request reduction in bail amount with traffic school option. or can I request a trail de novo with-out the citation officer and plead guilty for bail amount reduction and traffic school. I do not want to justify my self when I am not sure about the stop. Instead I would like to request for less fine and be careful while driving. I need to respond to in 3 days and I really appreciate your advice for me.
