Question: I'm 17, and just received a ticket for not stoping at a stop sign. Can I bring/use my 18 year old sister as a guardian so I don't have to tell my parents?
Answer: If your sister is not a guardian, she cannot appear for you in court. She may get herself in trouble if she attempts to present herself as a guardian. Also, it is likely your parents will find out about the ticket eventually. When car insurance runs a check, or if your license is suspended. Further if you are convicted of a red light violation, you will be required to complete an 8 hour traffic survival school course. In time, your parents will find out. You may want to consider completing defensive driving school which, if you qualify, may dismiss the ticket.
