what you have to realize is that they arent interested in the points as much as they are the revenue....so you should be able to plea bargin it down to a lesser offense, like careless driving or speeding.

In trade, you will probably have to take a drivers-ed course and possibly a little community service, but doubtful. If you cant afford a lawyer, talk to the prosecutor and see if they will work a deal with you to keep your liscence if you take a drivers class. They arent too bad cause you will find other lead-footed drivers who mod cars in there with you, lol.

good luck

97.... 35.... lucky he didnt nab me for street racing....


I know idiot... road goes from 55 down to 35


Court tomorrow... so might not be posting on here for awhile. Best bet get a lawyer and do what I did take the DMV test ahead of time, set up dates to do community service and when you go to court tell the judge you already took the course, and your interested in doing communuity service. I am also going to see if having LEOs in my family and being a sheriffs intern (until I am 20 1/2 so I can apply) will help at all.... but if nothing else get a lawyer and pray you get a nice judge.

I have about 9 tickets,I manage to get then 3 at a time.
So far the 2 worst have been careless driving and 88 in a 45, usually the cops will help you out and reduce them if they see you make the effort.
