DON’T PAY: FIGHT THAT TICKET!
Perhaps you—like most people—simply don’t take a speeding ticket all that seriously. You were likely embarrassed to be pulled over, perhaps annoyed, if you felt you were not speeding (or at least not speeding all that much), or you may have just wanted to have the entire issue over and done with. If so, you probably dropped a check in the mail and put the issue behind you. While this is certainly the fastest way to handle a speeding ticket, it is NOT the best way. What you may be unaware of is that by paying your speeding ticket you have effectively pled guilty to the offense and now have a conviction on your record.
That conviction can add three to four points to your driving record. Those points can have very serious repercussions, both now and in your future. Those three or four points could result in a serious increase in your automobile insurance rates and if you get too many points on your driving record, you could have your driver’s license suspended for one month, three months, or even a year. Additionally, the more convictions you have, the less likely a judge will give you the benefit of the doubt in future cases. As you can see, the consequences of simply paying your speeding ticket could well be more than you bargained for. Other than paying your speeding ticket, you have the following options:
