Can you pay a traffic ticket too late?
Does that sound right: $ 485 ticket if I don't cross the street on my bike? [closed]
We were given a $ 485.00 ticket for not cycling across the street. Can i fight this? $ 485.00 is a bit much !! ??? This ticket was given in Glendale Ca Has this ever happened to anyone? Did you fight this ticket and win?
- Like me and a friend, we each received $ 485.00. It was a 4-way crosswalk. All cars are stopped in 4 ways. So we went on to the other side. Cop stopped us because we were driving across the street and not cycling across the street.

I don't think you can get reliable legal advice on the internet. That said, here are some observations:
- The fine is clearly utterly unreasonable.
- Glendale seems to have some completely unreasonable laws in the book regarding bicycles: Apparently, you have to pay 50 cents a year to register your bike. I have no idea if this will be enforced. See http://www.ci.glendale.ca.us/gmc/10.60.aspx#10.60.040
- The police officer who issued the ticket may have a thorough understanding of the law regarding bicycles.
- You should probably decide now how far you are ready. For example, just pay the fine and go ahead and see if you are ready to make calls and try to drop them, if you are ready to go to court, and if you are ready to spend money on a lawyer. Personally, I would be willing to fight a little as the fine is steep and unfair, but the cost of hiring a lawyer is probably not worth it to me.
