How to Fight a Ticket
It is usually easier to simply pay a traffic ticket than try to fight it, especially for minor traffic violations. But if a speeding ticket would trigger a higher insurance premium or add too many points to your license, for example, it could be well worth it to fight the ticket. A traffic ticket is technically a criminal violation, although many states have a separate court to deal with traffic violations. These courts typically have fewer procedures and people can usually handle the process without an attorney. FindLaw's Fighting a Traffic Ticket section outlines the basics of traffic court procedures and some of the most common ways traffic violators can successfully fight a traffic ticket.
