What Are My Traffic Ticket Options?
One of the most common questions asked about traffic tickets is whether it is best to pay the fee online and avoid going to court?
There are limited circumstances in which a traffic ticket can be paid online without going to court. But just because you have the option to resolve your ticket and avoid going to court does not mean you should.
Paying Traffic Tickets Online May Be the Wrong Choice
Did you know that by paying your traffic ticket online, without going to court, you are, in effect, admitting to the charge? While it may seem like a simple and quick solution to resolving your traffic ticket, that simple and quick solution could have long-lasting implications.
Depending on the charge, paying your traffic ticket, without going to court, could result in a dramatic financial consequence. Depending on your driving record, some traffic offenses could cause your auto insurance rate to increase substantially. This increase in your auto insurance will continue for three years.
