The cop did not reduce the speed infraction on the scene. It ended up being 4 points, and $192 fine. Should I get Pointts (or someone similar) to fight the ticket? Not sure what to do? Is it worth the cost? How can they fight it? Or should I just pay the fine and stick with the 4 points.
What is the benefit of having Pointts (or similar) fight it? Can anyone here speak from experience?
I don't know how determined pointts or a similar organization is willing to fight your ticket. Usually they show up and take the reduced fine and call it a day. They tell you congratulations you won, and then you cough up several hundred dollars. You can do this quite easily yourself and there will be 30 others doing the same thing during your court date.
If you're looking to take your ticket all the way to trial, you'll need to start asking more questions here.
I have court date next week.
Thanks very much!
$6.00 per km over = set fine of $192.
Victim surcharge (based on fine amount, here) of $35 plus $5 court cost (here) gives a total fine of $232.
The $192 quoted above was likely the set fine amount before the extra taxes were added on. If your total payable for 32 over is $227, it seems like the officer forgot to add the court cost.
I picked up disclosure but they only gave me the police office's notes nothing else, I am not sure how do I defend myself without other radar infor.
