I went to pay a speeding ticket online today. I received the ticket 9 days ago.
On both the city website and paymytickets, it said "Offence Not Found. This ticket has not yet been entered into the database. Please verify the ticket number or try again later."
Surely, it should have been entered by now, as I only have 15 days to pay it.
Could it somehow have been forgotten? Should I ignore it? I'm not sure what to do.
You would be far better off choosing NOT GUILTY and requesting a trial with the officer present. once you get the Notice of Trial, you can then request disclosure/officers notes and review them before just pleading guilty and paying it. You can still pay it anytime up to the trial date.
