Statute of limitations in ca re traffic tickets?

Most likely, there isn't going to be one that applies. You would have to check with the issuing authority in California, the specific city, county or state to resolve this citation. Statute of Limitations is to prevent someone being accused of something years after it happened when witnesses are not available and memories are not fresh. A ticket eliminates this issue. Once a ticket has been issued, there is no requirement that there be any sort of time frame associated with resolving it.
