i got a speeding ticket for going 12 miles over the posted speed limit, I was told if i go to court the D A will probably reduce the ticket to 9 over and charge court costs; this would keep it off of my insurance. This is my first offense I am wondering if this is true
3 Answers from Attorneys
you need to consult with a traffic attorney, they may be able to reduce your points to a non-moving. as a defendant you have limited negotiating power.
Depends what county you are charged in. Many counties offer improper equipment- you may need a hire a lawyer or attend driving school. Just depends on the county.

It is true that if the DA reduces your offense to 9 over and you have no prior citations, it will not cause your insurance to go up if it is the only moving violation in a three year period. Many counties have better deals such as improper equipment though so you would want to explore those options first as the prior posters have said.
