I got a speeding ticket in Marion County, Indiana on June

I got a speeding ticket in Marion County, Indiana on June 21st of 2016 (offence 9-21-5-2.) It was an electronic ticket and the officer said the amount would be online in 10 business days. It is now July 21st of 2016 and it is still not online, well after the 10 business days the officer said. Every time I check, it says "online payment for this ticket is not currently available. If your ticket was issued less than 10 business days ago, please try again after 10 days. You may still request a copy of your ticket below." Should I call the court and ask what's going on? Also, I have 1 more question. The ticket was for going 79 in a 55 mph zone. I live in Illinois so this is an out of state ticket. I don't know if this matters, but I'm a minor (17 years old.) I know it will go on my record so can I do traffic school to make sure it doesn't? Which state would I have to do traffic school in? Can I say I want to do traffic school when I pay the ticket online or do I contact someone after the ticket is paid?

I was driving out of state and didn't know what the speed

Hi, I'm Jessica ******. I was driving out of state and didn't know what the speed limit was and went with the flow of traffic. I got my license in CA, so I'm used to their rules. There was a trap right where a 70 turns into a 65. The officer cited me with a 5450 offense code. This is the first time I've ever gotten a ticket and I have no idea what I'm doing.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The citation was in Cleveland, NCJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I've tried, but no one is taking my calls.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: That's all the pertinent information I can think of. I had low blood sugar when I was pulled over, so I was really out of it. The officer was grumpy (7:30 AM) but still polite.

I received notice of running a red light over 2 years ago

I received notice of running a red light over 2 years ago and they just sent this notice to my mother's address May 2016 but never sent it directly to me and this is the first I have heard about it from my mom. Is there a time limit on these charges? I find it strange they waited over 2 years to fine me. Thank you! LM
