Fuquay Varina, NC asked in Traffic Tickets for North Carolina

Q: So I think I just got a warning but with COVID I dont know. Are tickets by mail now or has anything changed?

I got clocked doing 65 in what I thought was a 55 but was actually a 45. After the officer ran my license he just came back, handed it to me and told me to keep the speed down. Normally I would take that as a warning and be very thankful but with COVID I worry it may be by mail or some other means. Is it safe to assume it's a warning at this point?

A: Are you saying that you can not look at the ticket and tell whether it is a warning ticket or a ticket that you need to take action on? If so, I gotta say that is a bit concerning because both types of tickets are very clear as to what they are. If you'd like, you can text a copy of the ticket to me at (910) 663-5059 and I will be able to tell you for sure and it it is a ticket that needs action I can likely suggest some options. However, odds are it is not a warning ticket and is a ticket you need to take action on and if so and if you really can not tell the difference, that action ought to be hiring a local traffic attorney in the area where you received the ticket. Best of luck.
