I may have been arguing without reading thoroughly. Not good.
Easy to do. When most people hear "running a red light" we think of someone seeing the light turn red, say screw it, and blast on through. Someone like me has a different perspective since I almost had to pay for one, so I can easily the confusion.
My boring story, skip if you don't want to read it:
Like flymia was mentioning, it was a minor ticket that turned into a citation since I was moving around all the time in flight school and didn't feel like updating (and paying) for a new license every few months. So they kept sending the ticket to the address I was at 2 address ago then somehow found out my home of record (my parents' house) and sent it there, but by that time, the time elapsed and it became a citation (talking FL here.) I was upset and I just wanted it bumped down to the normal ticket, I had a semi-good excuse but I was still in the wrong, but why not try? I wasn't going to try and fight it in court because I'd have to fly to FL and I was then in TX. The receptionist lady didn't care about my pleas and told me I could call the guy in charge of it (an actual police officer.) I called him, told him I wanted to talk about the ticket, and without even hearing my story just asked my name and removed the ticket. Have no idea why but I wasn't complaining, shut up, and thanked him afterwards. Sometimes, just simply asking for something will get you what you want. Very fortunate
