What does "traffic mail" and "dismissed" mean on a traffic citation?

Lancaster, CA |

I got a traffic ticket a few months ago, and I have recently completed traffic school. I got this when I looked up the status online.

Court: Michael Antonovich Antelope Valley Courthouse

Initial Due Date: 07/17/2012
Case Status: Dismissed
Disposition: Case dismissed on 08/28/2012
Last Action: Traffic mail
Last Action/
New Appearance Date: 09/10/2012 in TSR
What does all this mean?

The case was dismissed when you completed traffic school. The last action was the mail that they received from the traffic school saying that you completed it.

Does the "new appearance date" mean anything?

It seems to indicate that you have a court date coming up on the 10th. If you're not expecting that, I suggest you call the court for clarification.


When you complete traffic school case gets dismissed . The 9/10/12 might have been your due date to complete.
