Another speeding ticket thread by yours truely!
As many of you know, I'm currently dealing with a ticket. My court date is early Jan but in the letter it says that the magistrate (spelling?) cannot take away or reduce points. Meanwhile you guys in my last (1st ever!) thread about my ticket said that they can give you multiple parking tickets or make you take a class. I really don't care what I have to pay just as long as I don't get the points! The question is, what do they mean that the magistrate cannot reduce or take away my points? does it mean all charges are lifted or still stay is the only way it can go or what?

No points in WY. I got a letter 1 day from my insurance company saying that due to my long term history with them I would NEVER be canceled and NEVER be ineligible for a new policy. The next day I got a letter from my insurance company saying that if I got another ticket (3 in 3 months) my rates would increase. I put both letter in the closet and let them fight it out

Most jurisdictions just want your money (PA especially!). I have gotten tickets in the past but have never gotten points as they were reduced to a lesser (different) charge that cost me more money out of pocket but no points (Pay more up front or points and more money later). I think it varies state to state but it has been years since I had to deal with your situation and things could be different.
When I was 20 I knew everything, when I was 30 I knew something, at 40 I know nothing!

Ticket was for 16 over in a 25 zone. Dropped to 5-10 over without having to ask or negotiate.
