Well I went and got myself in trouble again. I went to the DMV this morning after easy child's IEP to renew my driver's license. I was never sent a renewal notice so I didn't even realize it had expired last month till someone at my bank pointed it out. So I go and submit my papers to the DMV and they tell me my license is suspended for failure to appear in court! I was shocked and asked them what the charge was. They said I have an outstanding traffic ticket that is now $532. The only ticket I've gotten was back in June for a broken tail light. I have gotten tickets like that in the past, and I've always just gotten the problem fixed, taken the car down to the police station to get proof of correction signed off, and paid a $10 correction fee. I totally forgot about this ticket and never did get it signed off. So I go and dig the original ticket out of my car, read the fine print, and it says I was supposed to appear in court by September 26th. It says on the ticket that failure to appear can cause me to go to jail for six months! Now the DMV is telling me that I either pay up the $532 (impossible) or go to court and beg the judge to have it reduced. I know that judges usually only reduce tickets by about $50. There's no way I can come up with the money. The DMV says I cannot get my license until the ticket is paid. I cannot go to court till Monday due to work circumstances, so I am hoping and praying I don't get pulled over till then. My tags for my car also expired and I can't get those until this ticket is taken care of. I am super freaked out at the possibility of going to jail. I am seriously praying nothing bad happens. Please send good thoughts my way cause right now my anxiety is in overdrive.
