I got a ticket in SoCal a couple years ago, and was able to do traffic school, on the internet, and I live in Arizona. So I don't know why you wouldn't be able to do it from NorCal.

For us locals it will always be Squaw Peak. We understand the derogatory-ness of it, and why they made the change, but to us it will always be Squaw Peak.
