Promise to Appear vs. Trial by Written Declaration

Question: When issued the ticket, I signed a box stating “Without admitting guilt, I promise to appear at the time and place indicated below.” Can I still request a trail by written declaration?

Answer: Yes. Your Written Not Guilty Plea will count as your appearance under California Vehicle Code 40519b. Appearing by letter is a legal right in infraction cases.
