Dear all,

I was driving on a double lanes road on each side of the traffic and there is a middle lane divided the 2 sides.
I had a dash broad camera and even the car in front of me was passing that school bus as well. We were in the opposite direction. I have an out of state driver license.
Anyhow, I was issued a citation by a police officer.
The officer said if I pay for the ticket, I will not need to go to the court.
As I tried to pay for it, I was unable to locate the info in the system.
I called the traffic court clerk yesterday, and she told me I might be able to pay for it in person. So I went to a traffic court to pay for it today and the clerk was also unable to find any info about my citation as well.
I called the Police Department, the lady was able to find it but she said that I am waiting for a court date.
My physical address is out of state and if they send me a court date, I will not be able to receive it at all since I am in Georgia and I am at least 800 miles away from home. I am currently working in Georgia.
Since the police officer said that I can pay for it online, but when I spoke with a clerk in a police department, she told me a different story.
What should I do now? Who is right and who is wrong.
As of now, the traffic court still unable to find the citation in the system.
Please help me.

Chuck

Do you mean a five-lane road with a center turn-lane? If so, yes, you should have stopped.

You'll have to contact the municipality that issued you the ticket.

I did contact the municipality today.
There is no information about the citation issued to me.
The clerk said that they will send me a court date but my physical address is 800 miles away.
Is that mean there is no way to access the court date online by entering the citation number/case number?
If I received a court date, I will probably move to another state by the time I received a court date.
I am a health care professional and I am travelling. I can't wait for that because my next assignment will start on 9/30/2019.
Please help!

What county or city issued the citation?

That's odd that it wouldn't be in the system. I would just go to the courthouse in person, present the ticket, and tell the cashier you would like to pay it. As long as you pay before your court date, you should be fine.

We could possibly help you better if you told us what city/county/court the tickets is issued from and what the date was.
What you described isn't unusual if you just got the ticket within the last few days.

Also in some states it is not illegal for oncoming traffic to continue driving if the bus stops on the opposite side of a road with a center left turn lane, and the OP is from out of state. Its possible he did not realize it was a law in Georgia.

Not sure but I don't think so. In Georgia, ever since I started driving, the only place where you do not have to yield to an opposing school bus is a raised median or barrier separated roadway.
