Must I apply in person at court? I heard about a request for trial by written declaration. Would that be a good idea in my case? And when I either go to court/make a written declaration, do I admit fault? Or do I just ignore that, and say that I would like to request traffic school? I have also heard of people making written declarations where they plead no contest, and then they don't have to pay the ticket at all.
OK, so I guess I am going to court. So what do I say when I get there? Will they directly ask if I am pleading guilty or not guilty? Do I try to explain myself, or just say "Guilty, and I would like the opportunity to take traffic school?"
OK, one last question. on my ticket, in the "Correctable Violation" section, the officer checked off the "No" box. Does that have anything to do with my eligibility for traffic school?
Alrighty. Thank you for your help!
