I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

You said that you were surprised to see the chat box. You've been taken to a private question and answer service where you can pay a lawyer to discuss traffic tickets and other legal topics. Is that what you meant to do?

It wasn't my intention, no. But since I was there, I thought I would ask. I did a search for "red Light tickets in Beverly Hills"
Expert:  Lucy, Esq. replied 1 month ago.

Ok. I just wanted to make sure you didn't accidentally find yourself on a site where you'd be charged without realizing it.

The only place where a person can safely ignore a red light ticket is within the city limits of Los Angeles. It's confusing, because many tickets are issued by LA County, but that covers multiple cities.

In order to get your license reinstated, you'll have to pay the ticket. The court usually will not allow a person to dispute a ticket after the deadline has passed, unless you have a very good legal reason for missing it. Very good legal reasons are largely limited to: ***** ***** in the hospital, you were deployed with the military, or you were incarcerated.
