Getting a traffic ticket, even one that seems minor, can be a hassle. There are fines and costs that go along with getting a ticket, and it is likely your auto insurance rates will increase if you are given a ticket. It is also possible that having too many tickets on your record will cause you to lose your driving privileges. So before you decide to pay a ticket without a second thought, take a minute to determine if fighting the ticket will be better for you in the long run. In many cases the charges against you can be reduced, which means the ticket stays off your record and you pay less in fines and insurance hikes. This result will help you to keep your license and will also help to keep the costs of your case lower.
One way to keep a ticket off of your record is to go to driving school. But there are rules about who can go, and how often a driver can attend. The two requirements for being able to enroll in n traffic school are:
- A driver cannot attend driving school more than five times over a ten year period.
- You cannot attend driving school more than once over the course of twelve months.
What all of this means is that a fact intensive review of your case is needed before deciding to go to driving school.
