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:

#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!
