So much drama 'n the LBCs

I just moved to a new city and county, 18 months after moving to California in the first place. The new city I live in has the most retarded street signs and traffic patterns on earth. The civil engineers for the 2 mile radius around our apartment should be drawn and quartered, it's terrible.
So the quickest way for me to get to the train station is about a 2-mile drive, although the station's less than a half-mile away from our new home. I would just walk, but there's a shady wooded area that the foot path goes through where a bunch of teens and hobos hang out, and I don't want to get mugged with my laptop after dark when I get home.
Anyways, the left-hand turn that I have to take to get to the train HAD a sign that said "RIGHT TURN ONLY: 4pm-6pm M-F" when we moved there, and I didn't notice that they added hours to the restricted turn (don't ask me why, it's not a difficult intersection if you fucking know how to drive) but I got tagged by an asshole bike cop who was just sitting and watching the light. Apparently the sign had been changed for 30 days, and they were giving a "grace period" for the first month, but I got tagged, ON MY BIRTHDAY, for turning left during their new hours of 7am-9am, which they added a little over a month prior.
Not only did the little handheld-receipt-printer ticket not say what the fine was, but the cop said I would get the official ticket in the mail within 30 days. The only thing I know for certain is I got a ticket for turning left in a no-left-turn intersection, and that my court date is on Dec. 15, which is a little over 2 weeks away. I guess the cop was wrong, or the ticket was lost.
I think I'm pretty much screwed and will have to pay the ticket and resort to the bullshit traffic school, but it pisses me off they can't even get the ticket to me, especially for such a bullshit ticket. From what I gather from coworkers, the state is fucked financially and is trying to get anyone for anything.
The most irritating thing is, I drive like a grandma since I got a whopper ticket about 5 years ago, so I've been really careful to follow the rules of the road, and yet I still get tagged with some horseshit ticket.
I'm going to fight it, but at worst I guess I pay the mysterious fine.
Oh, and a question for Californians... How do you change your address? I submitted a printed-and-mailed-in-form that was supposedly a multi-agency form in August after I moved and it was supposed to notify the DMV for my license, the DMV for my car registration and titles, and the state for my voting registration. I have YET to get anything in the mail confirming it, but I thought that I was supposed to get some sort of verification card within a certain time period... Anyone else had this issue?

We're not supposed to get political, but here's an excellent article about the insane fees and criminalization of all kinds of things to generate revenue:

If there really is no sign indicating no turn on red, then you need a photo that shows that and clearly shows that it's the same intersection as in the photo they took of you. You can't really fight it without that.

For any and all camera traffic tickets... the burden of proof is to prove that you were driving the car.
If your written response is that you are not guilty of the infraction because you weren't driving the car at the time, they will dismiss it.
End of ticket.
My buddy has gotten off on a few because the car he drives is registered to his wife. She gets the ticket, and replies that she was not driving her car, and as such is not responsible, and they dismiss it every single time.
