While I was driving down, I came across a bus that had it's stop sign out along with his blinkers on. I didn't see the stop sign until I was maybe a couple inches past it's bumper so attempted to stop but knew I wouldn't have time to stop because the speed limit was 45 and I was going 40 to stop on the approaching traffic light. It's really concerning me because I have a clean driving record and don't wanna have a fine on it. The drive also didn't honk and there wasn't any police present
It usually takes a few weeks to receive a citation in the mail. However, these tickets are civil in nature. They do not go on your driving history, nor do they affect your insurance rates.
