I got my ticket on 6/4/10. I did not receive my ticket in the mail and I couldn't find it in the online system either. My due date is 8/25/10, so I decided to go to court, and they still couldn't find my ticket on their system.
They told me that I have to wait for a year in order to get my ticket dismissed. So, they just issued me a proof of appearance and asked me to come back next month to get another one if I still haven't received my ticket. Not only that, I have to check online on a weekly basis and keep doing the proof of appearance monthly. I think this is totally unreasonable.
Also, another problem is I will move outside of the country for a year next January. So, I cannot do the proof of appearance after that.
Any suggestions?BTW, this ticket is for violating the basic speed law (school zone). The officer gave me the "Notice to Appear" on 6/4/10. I should have received the ticket along with the bail amount in the mail, which I never did. Plus, the ticket is not in the system. I have no intention to appeal or anything. I just want to pay for the ticket and go to the traffic school, if possible. But, since they cannot find my ticket in the system, there is nothing I can do but wait.
