I am an attorney with over thirty years of experience.

Can you tell me the section of law on the citation? What specific questions do you have?

In the meantime I will look somethings up for you.

Kind regards,

Hello again:

You were probably cited for either a Violation of Traffice Code 1010 or 1000. These are the basic lower violations for speeding.

For a first offense you are looking at a fine of $205.00 plus costs. So you can figure about $300.00. You may also receive points.

You can avoid the points by attending traffic school. You want to arrange for Traffic School before going to court if you can. If not ask the Court to defer judgment so that you can attend traffic school.

Go to court on the designated day and time to avoid more difficulties.

I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday.

I hope the information I have provided is useful to you and that I have earned a positive rating from you. It costs you nothing extra, and is the only way I get credit for my attempt to assist you.

If you are dissatisfied with my response PLEASE let me know before giving me a negative review so that I may try to be of better assistance. Or if you prefer, let me know and I can “Opt Out” and your question can be re-posted without additional cost to you. I will be fair to you and only ask the same from you.

Good luck,
