grrr..... i got a ticket tonight for "disobeying a stop sign."
the full fine is $180 and 4 points on your driving record.
but the cop said (and its indicated on the ticket), that there is an early payment discount for a fine of $160 and 2 points on your driving record.
he also said that paying early would reduce the violation to a lesser charge that would be a non-moving violation. (better for insurance rates).
so my question is... can you go to traffic school to have the ticket waived? and if you can, is it worth the risk to try to go into court to ask for it? from what i could gather, you may or may not be approved for traffic school and, if you are not, then you get the full fine.
anyone gone through this before?
