Oxnard, CA asked in Traffic Tickets for California

Q: Can I pay a fix it ticket instead of fixing the issue ?

I received a fix it ticket for my window tint, the fine is 194$ if I don’t fix it , could I just not fix it and pay the fine instead ? It would be a cheaper route because it will cost me more to remove and then reapply the tint. What bad could happen by this ? Besides possibly getting another ticket

A: You have illegal tint on your vehicle windows. You can be cited for this violation every time you drive the vehicle, until the tint is removed. That is $194 each time. Or fix it an pay the court $25. If you remove and re-apply the same tint, you are then open for more citations. So, YES, you can go to the courthouse and just pay the fine, probably pay the clerk and not even see the judge.
