Do not mail your New Haven County, CT speeding ticket to the court with a plea of guilty
While the State of Connecticut promises “no points,” if you mail your ticket in with a plea of guilty, your insurance company is not promising the same thing. Your insurance company utilizes a “Merit System,” and does not follow the DMV point system. 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.
Moreover, for the most part 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 New Haven 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.
