10 Questions Answered
Q. Should I pay this ticket or fight it?
A: If this was a camera ticket, you can just pay the $75.00 for the ticket. No points are assessed for camera tickets. If you wish to fight the ticket, then your aunt would either need to go to court or call a number on the ticket and tell them you were the driver and she was not. They should then dismiss the ticket against her and issue a ticket to you. You could then request a trial and testify to what happened. The judge could find that you entered on a yellow and dismiss the ticket.
Q. Is there a way to plead not guilty if officer saw me spinning wheels i havent recieved a ticker for 14 months
A: I think you are indicating that you received a ticket for spinning wheels and that your last ticket was 14 months ago before that one. You should request a trial and not a waiver hearing within 30 days. If the police officer does not appear, you will be acquitted. If the police officer appears and you are convicted, the judge can offer probation before judgment which avoids the points. I recommend that you do driver improvement before court and bring a letter from your employer to court establishing your need to keep your license. You are correct that if you hit 8 points, your license will be suspended. Should that happen, you can request an administrative hearing and ask the Administrative Law Judge to reduce or modify the suspension so can go to work.
Q. What should I do for my speeding ticket?
A: You still need to go to court. This is a 5 point ticket and paying it will affect your insurance if you get another vehicle and could lead to a suspension of your license depending on your driving record. If the police officer does not appear and you requested a trial, you will be acquitted. Otherwise, you can have a trial. If you are convicted, the judge can offer probation before judgment which avoids the points or can reduce the speed to make it a 1 or 2 point ticket. You should consider doing driver improvement and bringing proof of completion to court. You should note that the fact that you were singled out is not a defense.
