Whether you admitted it to him or not isn't a factor. I was just saying that in terms of a defense in court.Riderz1337 wrote: ↑Jan 18th, 2019 2:26 pmSo when I was pulled over and the cop said I was going 77 I told him that it doesn't seem very accurate and that I wasnt going that fast. I never told him that I was definitely speeding but not by a lot.
On the ticket itself there's no mention of him reducing my charge or lowering the speed at which I was driving to reduce the fee/avoid taking off demerit points.
My parents already know about the ticket as well I was moreso just curious if it would affect them.
If the ticket was reduced, there would be an R in a box on the ticket, I believe. If there's not, you're good on that perspective. If there is, you'd want to keep in mind that if you DID take it all the way to trial, the prosecution can ask to have the ticket amended back up to 77.
And good that your parents already know. There's been posts in here where children have been trying to hide things, including major tickets. I suspect (although I'm definitely not sure) that your tickets will adversely affect your parent's insurance rate. After all, you will have proven that you're a higher risk driver. You can maybe check with @COSMIC5; she's an insurance broker in this forum.
If it was me, I'd just pay it and be done, to be honest. But I'm paid by the hour at work, and no unpaid time off available (contractor). It would cost you nothing but time to request a trial and either hope the cop doesn't show up or negotiate a bit of a deal if you can with the prosecutor. Just depends on how much your time is worth.
