Question by danny : what does “correctable violation” on a traffic ticket mean? I was issued a traffic ticket for “tire tread” by the bakersfield police dept., on the ticket it says it’s a “correctable violation” which i always thought meant if i got the problem fixed and had it wrote off by proper officials then the ticket was dismissed as long as i did it in the time frame allowed. but today in the mail i received a letter from the courts stating that i had to pay 134.00 , and to keep it from going on my driving record (increasing my insurance and also ruining my perfect driving record of 21 years) then i also had to attend driving school at an additional charge, and pay administration fees and also some other processing fee of some sort. Is this how a correctable violation works? I thought a driving violation like speeding or running red lights worked like this. I would appreciate any help, especially from a d.m.v. employee or court worker, or even a peace officer. Best answer:
