Last month, I got a speeding citation in California (County of Contra Costa). Then I got the ticket in the mail.
Ticket offered 2 options:
- Pay the ticket (admission of guilt) = ~$240
- Pay the ticket (admission of guilt) + traffic school = ~$310
From what I understand, option-2 makes you take the traffic school and removes the "point" from your license. Your insurance hence doesn't get impacted, as it stays private.
I took (option-2), paid the "ticket + traffic school" (~$310)
Question – What happens next?
Do I wait for a letter from the court asking me to attend a traffic school?
Do I take the traffic school and then figure out a way to inform the court ?
