Hi all, I would like some advice if I should fight this ticket. I was in a 60 zone entering a 50 zone without knowing it, and officer caught me with his laser gun, i was doing 70 at the time, so i was 20 over. the officer was nice and reduced it to 55, meaning its only 5 over and $30 fine with no demerits. I wouldn't mind paying $30, however, i'm concerned that the ticket might increase my insurance, since i'm still fairly young (23), then i would end up paying a lot more than 30$. So should i pay for the ticket and hope my insurance doesn't go up, or should i fight it?

I think this serves a dual purpose. Stops this from going to court and the offender gets no points........ As the original poster said he was doing 20 over, personally i would just pay it.
