    I got a ticket in the mail for 21453(A) for failing to stop for an official red traffic control signal. I was making a right turn on a red light. Originally, the ticket was in my mom's name because my car is in her name, so she submitted the correction form which identified me as the driver. A week later, the ticket was registered in my name. After researching I realized that doing this was a mistake but it's too late to do anything now. I was caught via camera and I checked out the video online and I did not stop when I made a right turn. Anyways, this is my first ticket after 11 years of driving. Is there anyone that has gotten out of a ticket like this by doing a Trial by Declaration? If anyone has been in this situation and has gotten out of it, then please let me know how you did it. Thanks.

    Had your mom refused to state who the driver was, only that it wasn't her, you would've gotten out of the ticket.

    Your mom threw your ass under the bus and now you need to know how to get out of it? Why not pay it since you're guilty? I've yet to see anyone who really ran the red light to get out of the ticket.

    Agreed. Just pay it and be done with it.

    I am not in SoCal, but I paid mine when I turned right at a "no right turn on red" intersection

    Haven't done that since ;)

    You're wrong. She's not obligated to disclose the driver. At least that's what it said on my red light ticket.

    You have admitted guilt in your statement. Just pay it and chalk it up as a loss. Just go on with your day after that and forget about it. Good luck! :D

    So are you a regular member who's just hiding under a new account or what?

    Did you get to your destination on time, or were you still late? The solution is simple: leave sooner.

    I guess they really, really don't want people doing that!
