I got a traffic citation from the California highway patrol?

Postby nann » Fri Mar 16, 2012 9:46 pm

He claimed I was going 93 in a 70 (I was going around 80) but he said he would cut me a break and write the citation for 75 mph since I have never been pulled over before. He didn't say I was getting a ticket, but is there a possibility when I call the number to settle the citation I could get one?

"He didn't say I was getting a ticket?" Are you saying you didn't receive anything from the officer? If you have a citation, you got a ticket.

He did cut you a break; the 75 fine is $234, the 93 fine would be $360.

Hello, this seems like a very sticky situation! The cop might've forgotten to issue a citation. So, hopefully he forgot!

But there's a chance that he did. The 75 mph in California State fine is $234. So, if he did issue a citation, you have to pay that, plus tax! Oh, god.

Don't listen to Angelica, she is a cop, a vet, a former criminal, a doctor, she works at a salon (where she got best answer, scary) AP world history teacher, AP High School teacher health major, AP economics and history teacher, she has MD in world history, she works at Nordstroms, she works in human resources, and her most offensive answer, she was a preacher. She also works at Verizon.

Your notice to appear form is your ticket. You got a ticket. In most Court's in California the notice of appear date on the bottom is not actually a Court date. The Court's will send you a notice indicating the fine amount and if you are eligible for traffic school. I really work in a Court. In some Court's in California that date is an appear date, but not many. Contact the Court for further instruction. Also, there is not necessarily a set fine amount for speeding in California. The fine depends on your prior record.

"Ticket", "Citation", "Notice to Appear", they're all the same.
