A: Without looking at your citation it is a difficult question to answer. You should contact the court and see what they can tell you about the situation. You are on the right track wanting to keep it off your driving record. The fine is very high as well and you should try to avoid paying that if possible. You may want to consider consulting with an experienced traffic ticket lawyer who can review the citation and give you a more accurate explanation
