    Road law or catraffictickets? Which one is better? Road law is more expensive but is it worth it?

    Might as well pay it. You are shoving more money into something so minor.

    I actually paid a vehicle whose registration expired some months past. Normally a trooper give a warning, but this violation was pretty outrageous. I drove across town to pay the ticket in person in cash in about 4 minutes. The trooper saw that the ticket has been paid and there isnt any reason to proceed with the paperwork on it and I never saw it come up on the driving record which would have created more problems. So in a way I lucked out.

    The ultimate solution is not to go to California at all. I have never seen such a trigger happy state in which just existing inside their borders is such a liability in financial and freedom terms.
     
    Tolmie Thanks this.

    Both the same. What will happen is they look in their directory and find a local lawyer. In a less populated area, it will be the same guy. In a more populated area it might still be the same guy, depending on the odds of both places picking the same guy.

    In a nutshell you will get the same service in the courtroom. The olny difference is how the referal service works.
     
    Tolmie Thanks this.

    You'll get the charged dropped to something lower. Possibly non moving violation. But you still pay the citation fine.

    Calif just wants your money.

    That’s good enough with me. Lesson learned. Moving to Nevada or Texas next year.

    Medford Scales in particular.

    It's a shame because I completely and absolutely enjoyed the Willamette Valley.

    that reminds of the time the dispatchers got me to pick up a load of young trees at an address South East of Portland in the mountains, going to new housing estates in the Salt Lake City area, after i was loaded i had the choice of heading north to the I- 84 or taking the more scenic route i chose the later and took OR Hwy 26 across to the ID border rejoining the I - 84 near Ontario there was some really beautiful country side through there although it probably ended up being a longer trip i enjoyed the detour immensely.
