Unfortunately the previous was a no turn on red - again in an unfamiliar neighborhood and via camera. No tickets before that for decades.
How can I ask for judicial discretion to attend traffic school in lieu of the point on my DL. Do I plead guilty, pay bail and ask for a waiver of the 18 months or do I need to plead not guilty. I would prefer to do this by written declaration
Talk to an experienced traffic ticket attorney such as Andrew Roberts or David Dastrup. I think judges do not have discretion on bending the rules on this, but verify with an attorney who specializes in this.
I definitely would appear in court on the date stated on the ticket. Many red light cameras are being thrown out and not prosecuted. Attend court and see if that is the case for your ticket. If not, many judges will offer a deal better than what is on that ticket. Best wishes.
The response above is general information related to law and not intended as legal advice since it’s impracticable to provide thorough, accurate advice based upon the query without additional details. It is highly recommended that one should seek advice from an attorney licensed in your jurisdiction by setting up a confidential meeting. Moreover, this response does not constitute the creation of an attorney-client relationship since this message is not a confidential communication because it was posted on a public website, thereby publicly disclosing the information, which is another reason to setup a confidential meeting with an attorney.
You are not eligible for traffic school as you went within the last 18 months. The DMV will not recognize it. Written declarations DO NOT WORK! Google “red light camera tickets- Los Angeles County “. Read the articles!!
