A week ago I'm driving along this road here in San Diego, California. Doing the speed of traffic around me, when I come up on this guy who's going rather slow. So I go to pass him, and whammo. Traffic cop signals me over. 67 in a 45 zone.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Annoying part is that I was only doing like 5mph more than the flow of traffic, to pass that slow poke.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] So she writes me a ticket for speeding and being 2mph over the max California limit, 65. Tells me that I will get a letter in the mail that will tell me how much the fine is. Sends me on my way.
So I'm looking at the ticket, and it's got my Michigan liscense plate down, and my drivers liscense. However, she wrote it down as being a California drivers liscense, when it's actually a Michigan one. The Court date is also October 1st, and I should be leaving the Marines and SoCal for Michigan on October 3rd. That doesn't leave me much time for all of this.
I plan on paying the fine and all. My buddy was doing like 80 in a 55 zone and got a $150 fine, so mine should be closer to $100. Sucks but I can handle it. He had to take traffic school to get out of the points on his liscense. He has a California drivers liscense.
If I just paid the fine and had to leave before the traffic court date, what would happen?
Because she wrote my info down wrong, can I get it dismissed or anything?
Can a ticket written here in California put points on my Michigan liscense?
Even if she got the liscense's state wrong?
I'll pay it and do what I have to, but I'd like to get out of it if possible, and I'll be damned if I'm going to put off going home any longer than my out date because traffic school is after October 3rd.
