A traffic cam citation for speeding was sent to me by mail, but my friend was the one who was driving. I sent the form in, with a letter stating I was not the driver. as well as a copy (front and back) of my drivers license. I received a letter back stating, "The above citation has been dismissed for one or more of the following reasons:", but the box that was checked stated, "citation re-issued back to same driver." I called and they said that the ticket has again been re-issued back to me and my only options were to pay it, show up in court or possibly write to the judge.
My friend who was driving does not live in the U.S. and she is in a tough place right now. I don't want to bother her with the ticket, nor do I want to go into court or pay the fine.
I'd prefer to respond by mail, and would like to know if I should simply say that I was not the driver, or the best way to handle this. Thanks in advance for any advice.
Typically that means there was a problem with your certificate of innocence or that when someone finally looked at your photo and the driver's photo they believed it was still you. If you pay the ticket it will go on your record. If you don't show up for court or hire an attorney to go to court for you you will be convicted.
