Debunk These Myths About Traffic TicketsLearn the truth about your traffic tickets.

No one wants a traffic ticket, but every once in a while we relax our perfect driving habits and drive a little recklessly. When you get a traffic ticket, you'll do almost anything to get out of it. The best way to deal with a traffic ticket is to pay the ticket and practice safe driving in the future. However, there are a few myths in circulation about how to deal with a traffic ticket. Check out the facts and debunk these traffic ticket myths. Myth: You're off the hook if the officer doesn't attend your hearing. Fact: Just because the officer doesn't show up to court doesn't mean that you're free to dismiss the ticket. When it comes to contesting your ticket, the officer doesn't need to be present. It's best only to challenge a ticket if you have a lawful reason to do so. Myth: A clerical mistake voids the ticket. Fact: It's a common misconception that a spelling error or €œforgetting€ to sign the ticket means that a ticket is no longer valid. However, that's not the case. Any judge in court will just dismiss it as a clerical error which won't hold water as an acceptable defense. Do yourself a favor and be smart about your driving. Myth: Following the flow of traffic is an acceptable excuse for speeding. Fact: Speeding is speeding. Even if you're traveling one mile per hour over the speed limit, you're breaking the law, and there's no excuse. Just because everyone else is doing it doesn't make it okay. Keep your driving in check and protect yourself with the right auto insurance policy.
