How to Fight a Ticket

Most people find it easier to just pay a traffic ticket than to try to fight it. This is especially true if the ticket is for a minor traffic violation. However, there are times when the time and energy to fight a ticket is worth it. For example, if the traffic ticket would lead to too many points on your driver's license or higher insurance premiums, it may be worth fighting the ticket. FindLaw's How to Fight a Ticket section provides information about how to decide if fighting a ticket is a good idea and strategies for fighting ticket.
