Should I contest a ticket?
Yes! Most traffic tickets will count against your license. Too many and your license could be suspended. Contesting these tickets is the only way to keep your license safe from them.
What happens when I contest a ticket?
When you contest a ticket in court, it will usually go through a series of hearing dates where the court prosecutor and judge decide what to do with it. If you have a defense attorney, that attorney will argue your case and try to work out a plea deal with the prosecutor or get the judge to dismiss your ticket.

Should I just pay the fine on my ticket?
No! When you pay the fine on the ticket, the court counts you guilty. After that, you have no way to contest the ticket and protect your license from it. Some courts require you to pay an amount to contest the ticket, though. Always read your ticket carefully to make sure you respond to it in the way that’s best for you.
