Default hey guys i got a fix it ticket and have a ?

Okay I got a fix it ticket for no offroad light covers and I am under the assumption that I can just pay a transaction fee to the court with proof of correction but then I got a bail amount in the mail later on for $174. Do I have to pay that? I'm stressing and the courts aren't open until Monday :\

Letter should have explained what you have to do. I assuming you're appearance date hasn't come and gone? If it has and you didn't appear or show proof of correction to the court (either mailed in per instructions on back of the citation or went to traffic court with the correction) then that is the amount of the citation and probably your traffic warrant. Standard operating procedure... If your appearance date is still in the future then take the proof of correction and transaction fee to the traffic court and they will clear it. This can usually be done at the front counter without seeing a judge.

Not so dumb if you were the ricer who pissed me off on the highway one day, i had so many candles burning his paint i almost saw primer, almost made him lose control of his car too.

I had a warning for not covering them later on too...lol

sounds like the cops in HB have nothing better to do than be pricks, unless you had your offroad lights turned on..

The cop was trying to get in your gf's pants...when he found out it was her bf's truck, he wrote her a ticket for being faithful.

the light cover law applies to any fog/driving/off road lights mounted over 42" on a vehicle. the reason for it is so *******s can't blind other vehicles by using them on the road, either unintentionally or intentionally.
as for the fix it ticket, I bet it's just a "show a cop they are covered," he signs it, you return it to the proper service center and thats it. The $194 is the fine if you DO NOT get the cop to sign within a week.

Um Idk about where you are, In Washington you have 15 days from the time of the ticket to fix it or they send you the ticket. Sounds like you passed the time to fix it and got the ticket
