You have three options when you receive a traffic ticket. However, there is a fourth traffic ticket option that no one should do. This option can transform a minor traffic ticket into a major problem.
Never ignore your traffic ticket and do nothing. Failing to act when you receive a traffic ticket can cause you to incur additional fees/fines and possible suspension of your driver’s license.
WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH YOUR TRAFFIC TICKET
The following are the three options you have available:
- Simply pay the ticket. Remember paying the ticket may also result in points on your driver’s license and an increase in your insurance costs.
- Pay the ticket and elect traffic school. This means you are paying the ticket and paying the cost of traffic school. Most schools require you to spend at least four hours in their classroom. While traffic school is available online, you still need to spend the four-hour equivalent of being in a classroom.
- Fight your traffic ticket. This means that you do not have to pay your ticket until the end of your trial, and if you get it dismissed, you will not have to pay for anything!
