I'm trying to figure out when do points "fall off the record", when does the time start counting, from the time a person is convicted or from the time the citation was issued? All I know that in CA it's 3 years and 3 months, but when does the time start counting exactly, so they... Read more »

It's not as simple as walking into to court with pictures or even video tape showing that the intersection did not have a sign posted that it was illegal to make a right turn on a red light. You don't know it that was the only reason the cop pulled you over. If evidence was seized...Read more »
