Deciding on whether or not to fight your speeding ticket is a big decision to make. Hopefully, after you have read this article you'll have your answer.
It's your right as an American citizen to defend yourself against any and all traffic tickets that you may get. Not doing so could wind you up with huge fines and insurance costs.
You may be guilty of an absurd traffic law, but what it boils down to is whether or not your actions were unsafe. We are always told that we are being ticketed for our own safety.
So, to be justly ticketed we must be creating a hazardous situation when none was present to begin with.
In other words...
If you answered NO to these questions, then you really didn't deserve your ticket, no matter what it was for. Your ticket was written with the sole purpose to increase revenue.
In today's world, cities need increasingly larger amounts of money to survive. The legal way to raise this money is through certain taxes and levies. However, an illegal way to also do this is with the issuances of millions of undeserved traffic tickets.
If you don't mind contributing your hard earned cash, then go right ahead. I'm sure our politicians will put it to good use.
On the other hand, if you feel your ticket was unjustified, then do yourself a favor and take the necessary actions to erase it.
Your wallet will thank you for it.
With your ticket in hand, you have a number of things you can do with it:
Okay, so you're raging mad about this whole ticket situation and decide that you're going to do absolutely nothing about it. You tear the ticket up in a million pieces and toss it in the trash.
Or is it?
Well, chances are good that on one of those torn sheets of paper there was a court date for you to attend. If that court date passes and you fail to show up or at least fail to give the courts proper notice that you will not be present, you can expect tp have a WARRANT OUT FOR YOUR ARREST!
Yep, that's just how serious that little sheet of paper can be. If you ignore it and a warrant is issued, here's what can happen:
Wow! All this because of one lousy speeding ticket.
As you can see, ignoring the ticket costs more in the long run than just paying it off to begin with:
1. One days lost wages = $100+
2. Get vehicle out from the impound = $80+
3. Pay bail amount = (cost of original ticket) $150+
4. Humiliation of being handcuffed and arrested
5. Time in jail (next to Big Bubba)
Not only that, but eventually your insurance company will get wind of the ticket and increase your monthly premium. All this aggravation for nothing!
Ignoring the ticket might sound like a fast and easy way out, but in the long run you WILL pay. And pay dearly!
