Sent traffic school information to a REALLY old address - Complaint
GENEVA, ILLINOIS -- So, Hubby got a ticket. Don't ask. In order to keep it off of his record and (hopefully) avoid an insurance hike, he opted to complete traffic school online. I paid the fine and filled out the registration online, printed out the plea paper, made him sign it, and mailed it back within about 10 days of getting the ticket. A week after mailing the plea, he still hadn't received any information on traffic school. So I called the circuit clerk's office to inquire as to its whereabouts. They said they had received the plea and that the traffic school information would be coming in a couple of weeks.
Fast forward to this evening. Hubby was checking his email when he saw a message from one of his brothers. As it turns out, the geniuses had sent his traffic school information to his brother's house, which happens to be the house that my husband grew up in, but hasn't lived in since probably 2000. Now, the address on everything from his drivers license to the ticket itself was correctly written, plus he has received a ticket in Kane County before with no difficulty in receiving the traffic school information in that instance, so I don't know what in the world they were looking at when they addressed the envelope this time. Of course, I shouldn't be surprised because when I originally went to pay the ticket online, it hadn't even been posted in their database yet even though it had been over a week, the assigned court date was less than 10 days away, and of course they require that everything be paid 3-5 days before the court date if you want to avoid trouble. I'm just thankful that someone in his family still lives at the old house so that screw-ups like this are usually minimized.
