    I got a ticket for driving in the median. Yup, dumb. You know I-40, middle of the desert, HUGE dirt median, tried to creep past a vehicle fire. Redirected back over. As I was waiting with several other drivers, CHP (young kid that probably wants to make a name), shows up and starts taking names. Guilty? Yes. Does he really need to enforce it? No. Oh, it was the end of the month so....

    Anyhow, cant seem to get a bead on an answer.

    AZ CDL which in AZ you cant do driving school. But the ticket is in CA, and non CMV. Can I do driving school?

    Anyone else experienced this?

    "kid shows up and starts taking names"? Did he actually witness this? At any rate, I would fight this ticket. As I would any ticket that could affect my CDL.

    "Young Kid shows up". Was he 14 on a Moped or a CA CHP in a cruiser? No need to disparage the law officer. If he was a CHP officer, i doubt he was a "KID".
    If you feel the need, fight it in court. If the officer did not witness the incident, you probably walk.
    Who directed you to stop and wait? Another law officer or a fireman?
    And what was the infraction on the ticket? Is it a moving violation? If not, it will not affect your CDL.

    The median is for emergency vehicles or authorized venicles or itcan be used if you have an emergency. You have no case to argue.
