What is the name of your state? California
Last night I was pulled over for speeding, recorded as doing 87 in a 65. I was definitely speeding and I have no desire to avoid responsibility (I notice a lot of people frown upon that here ); I only want advice on minimizing my damage i.e. my insurance rates and/or points on my DMV record. I also got cited for not wearing a seatbelt which was definitely not the case, although its my word against the officers which is a losing battle most likely. I was wondering about my options and what good it would do to plead Nolo (is that the same as No Contest?) in keeping my insurance down (I am 21 years old). Also would it be possible to plead Nolo and/or go to traffic school for the speeding violation and pay for the safetly belt fine? Is this ticket treated as one judgement with 2 violations or would I make 2 seperate pleas/judgements?
I think I want to plead Nolo to avoid having my insurance go up/points on my record or go to traffic school but I don't know what I can do since there are 2 violations. Thanks for your time and consideration!
