after losing my wallet during spring break, i found out that my driver's license has been suspended for almost two yrs eek. i was driving my ex's car to drop her off at the airport back in '06, and we got pulled over for a burned taillight. i bought the bulb but things happened and we broke up before i could fix it. since she took the ticket (my signature's on it, but she'd need it to fix the citation), i assumed (my fault) that everything would be taken care of. but apparently she never got it fixed and never paid the fine. in addition, she sold her old car and has been driving a new one for more than a yr already. to get my license back, it'll cost almost $700 because of "failure to appear" (V.C. 40509.5) twice (i never got the notices). in addition, the new court date is about two months from now, which will coincide with my midterms. =\ in a way, i feel that i'm the one who's ultimately responsible for the fine b/c 1.) i signed the ticket, 2.) it's my license (and the traffic clerk warned that the court can issue a warrant for my arrest). but it's flipping $700! i'm a broke butt college student and that's almost two months worth of food! not to mention that i really had the intention to fix the citation. also, my roomie reminded me that i was doing my ex a fav to drop her off at the airport. any thoughts/advices? would it be fair to ask my ex to pay the citation? (more) rant: it took over 30 mins just to get the DMV guy to tell me what was the make of the car i was supposedly driving. he wouldn't tell me the exact violation due to "privacy concerns." wtf? (did i wanna kick him in the nutz ) first of all it's my flipping driving record. secondly, did he expect me to go to the court w/o knowing what i was there for?
