^^^No way, that's got to be the most ridiculous ticket that I have every heard of!

And no, if you take traffic school it won't even go on your record, so your insurance company won't even know you got a ticket. But I would try to fight it, sounds like a BS ticket to me. I fought a ticket that I got for "unsafely crossing a highway" and when I told the judge what happened he knew the cop was being ridiculous and told me that he would notify me by mail and sure enough i was found not guilty.

Remember, in GA...There is no driving school option. I have consulted an attorney and this has a 3 points value. If I pay it, it goes straight to my record. The attorney says they can reduce it to a non moving violation and can keep it off my record. This is just stupid to have to deal with thanks guys.

There's no way to easily say. It depends on your state, your ins company, how many other violations/accidents you have within a given time, your age...too many variables man. Call your ins agent. They should be able to tell you.

Every state and insurance are different; many insurances do not have the time to check everybody all the time and won't notice it, others do not raise it for just one ticket (they give you a break).
Call your insurance and ask them but do not tell them your name.
Go to court and fight it and hopefully the prosecuter or judge will reduce it to a seat belt or another no points ticket, just make a good excuse.
A lawyer will get you another no point ticket instead but will charge you around $300 plus ticket.
Good luck and let us know what happens.

Back when I was 17 I got a ticket for an expired tag. My insurance went up 100 dollars for a six month period. That citation didn't come off my record till last summer. I had always thought that a citation only stayed for two years on your record.

Well...heard back from the state court judge. She says I can enter a plea of Nolo since my record is clean...dismissing the points.. But the violation still shows up on my record and I cannot plead nolo again for 5 years!! Looks like I will be hiring an attorney!! Unless, insurance only goes by points instead of violations when they check MVR. I have Allstate if it matters.

It can effect you ins rates, but if you go to traffic school (or whatever your state calls it) you should be all good. I got a ticket for throwing a cig out the window and it effected my rates!
no offense but.... its ppl who do this that really piss me off.... so if you're some one who throws your cigs out the window... i light my own and toss them into your car..... DAM litter bugs
