The Question Club
So I got my first speeding ticket today.|
I was going 62 and got pulled over (a Dearborn Heights, MI cop). He ticketed me for going 55 in a 50 zone, so I was only cited for 5 over.
I've heard lots of schtuff about fighting tickets to reduce fines or get the points off your license.
What's the best, least-costly way to approach handling this?
P.S. I know I've read questions like this in here before, but couldn't locate them... thanks very much. *trying not to freak out*
EDIT: You all have made very good points about the cop giving me a good break, and I really do appreciate it since a lot of the cops around here are VERY petty in giving tickets just to up their pay.
With that said, is there any way I can go to court and do it the honest way and plead guilty to a lesser charge or something? To try to convince the judge I really am a good driver and this was undeserving of points on my record? It's not the fine I'm concerned about, it's the insurance rates.
