Why it is a mistake
to mail your Fairfield County, CT speeding ticket to the court with a plea
is a mistake to simply mail your ticket in with a plea of “guilty” because
the State of Connecticut promises “no points.” While that may be true, your
insurance company is not promising the same thing. Your insurance company
utilizes a “Merit System,” which is separate and apart from the DMV point
system. In other words, your insurance company does not care what the DMV
does or even if you were convicted in or out of the State of Connecticut.
All you insurance company cares about to trigger an insurance increase is
that you plead guilty to a moving violation.
addition, for the most pare the CT DMV does not consider points. They consider
convictions within a period of time. So pleading guilty as charged can still
trigger re-training requirements, suspensions, and revocations. Our Fairfield
County, Connecticut traffic court defense attorneys and lawyers avoid this
by executing on a plea bargain. We resolve your case by pleading you guilty
to a non-moving or lesser moving violation. While you still pay a fine, a
lesser conviction avoids the insurance increases and suspensions often associated
with mailing the ticket in with a plea of guilty. If we cannot do that, then
we take your case to trial and go for a full dismissal.
