Indianapolis, IN asked in Traffic Tickets for Kentucky

Q: Will I have to go to court?

I reached an intersection slightly before a bus moving opposite of me. I proceed slowly and as I’m driving the bus driver extends the bus arm and puts out the stop sign. I continue because otherwise I will be in the middle of an intersection. He puts his arms up at me and now I’m scared I’ll get a ticket. This is the state of Kentucky and it was a newer bus (meaning it probably had a camera). I feel very guilty about it and now I’m worried.

A: Highly unlikely that you will receive a ticket after the fact if you weren’t given one at the time. Violation has to be committed in the presence of an officer unless a criminal complaint is signed by a judge, which is highly unlikely.
