City of San Antonio Strikes Again!
Categories: Car Talk, MSW

It seems as though my love affair with the City of San Antonio is not quite over yet. Remember back on 2/15 when I told you about the speeding ticket that I mailed in but they sent back to me? Well… I thought I was done with that. But today when I checked my mail I had another letter from them.

This time the letter says:

CITY OF SAN ANTONIO VS. CURIOUSDAISY

#1- I want to know if this is legit. I have done the probation period thing before and had other tickets dismissed but I have always had to start the process on my own. And times that I did that I had to do it before I paid the original ticket. And also when I paid this ticket there was an option of doing a probational period.

#2- If it is truly legit do I really have to have an attorney sign this letter? If I return without and attorney what will happen?

Does anyone know anything about this??

On another note I also got my Texas drivers license in the mail today. Hold the comments… yes it took me 3 years but I finally did it! Next on my list is a passport!

    Why would not want probation? In IL to get probation you have to take a $125 4 hour class to keep a moving violation from showing up on your record.

  2. I was simply going to thank you for commenting on my “Poke Me” tee, but I didn’t realize I was dealing with a felon. A would bid you fond adieu, but you appear assistance. No. You don’t have to have an attorney sign. That’s there just in case you have one. No one want’s an attorney’s signature out there without a place to land, bumping into walls and such.

    Wow! I am so proud of you…tabs and a license!!!

  4. […] on my blog. I even noticed back then that the amount was wrong. Then I got another letter on 3/9/11 but I didn’t understand what it was asking me for so I never did anything with it. Oh […]
