Saint Cloud, MN asked in Traffic Tickets for Minnesota

Q: How long does it take to get a ticket in the mail if one is issued?

I stopped appropriately behind a school bus, and when that one went, I went too. There was a second bus stopped at the corner, let the first bus by, and then put the stop sign out AS I was passing it and started honking at me. He did not put out the stop arm until I was right next to him. And he was stopped on the corner- I thought he was waiting for the same bus I had been. The bus doors were closed, and definitely no children outside the bus.

A: There is no set time for you to receive the ticket and it could take some time. You should expect to get something within a month or so, but that does not mean that you are in the clear.

A: It would have to be within three years to avoid a statute of limitations defense. Other than that, the longer it takes, the better.
