I was pulled over and given a traffic infraction and notice to appear in court. The citation was CVC 23123a. Will a point be added to my record? If so, is there a way to erase the point? And I had a point added to my record in July so that only makes matters worse I'm sure... I'm a 17 year-old high school senior. That won't help my case either huh? What if it was because my headset broke about 5 minutes before I was pulled over and I was getting off of the phone? Well I doubt the court would believe that.
Thanks to anyone who can help. It's greatly appreciated.
