Why Opting for a Defensive Driving Course is a Good Idea

Fight the traffic ticket or just plead guilty and attend defensive driving course.

This is a choice drivers across America face every day. If you are truly not guilty of the offense and you can prove it somehow, then obviously going to traffic court and defending yourself may be the best choice. However, if you are guilty of the offense paying up and attending defensive driving course is probably the best choice.

Here are some of the reasons why.

1. Going to court and defending yourself with no positive evidence to back up your story will result in a case of the officer’s word against yours. Remember that the judge has heard every excuse in the book and will more than likely lean toward the word of the officer.

2. If you hire a lawyer to fight the case for you, you will most likely wind up paying a lot more money than you would if you had just paid the ticket and, despite the advertisements, there is no way that a lawyer can guarantee that you will win your case. Not only could you lose, you could wind up paying an even heavier fine and court costs in addition to the attorney's fees.
