So, I got in an accident yesterday. Admittedly, it was my fault, and I got ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. No point in fighting it, but here's my question.

Do you guys think I should just pay the ticket ($75, goes on my record) or request court supervision ($115 I think, a driving class, and it doesn't go on my record, assuming they grant supervision and I don't get another ticket within I think 4 months)?

Might as well try to keep it off your record. Insurance isn't cheap.

Yeah that's your best bet. Better to pay the extra $40 and be done with it..as long as you don't have to pay for the class too.

pay extra for court, you'll save a lot more on insurance

There's other good reason's to try and keep it off your record too. Some company's look at your driving record when you apply for a job, even if your job wouldn't have you driving for the company. And if you want to get a driving job in the future then it's even more important.

Well, I don't plan on getting a driving job, but depending on how things work out, I'm probably going to try to get court supervision. It's a little complicated though, as I'm going to school about an hour and a half drive away, so I'd have to skip classes for my court date.

Oh, and the estimate for repairs ended up at $2761 ;crap . Makes me happy we have collision coverage.

It dosent matter if your going to get a "driveing job". Alot (actually most) of large company's look at driveing records regardless if the job has anything to do with driveing, they even look at your credit history.

Take their advice. I applied to 6 places recently and they all required a 5-10 year driving record.

no

Generally, they are at 8am on Saturdays and if you fall asleep during the 4-6 hour class, you immediately fail. Still fun? lol

Well, finally got it taken care of today. After a continuance from my first court date, finally got it outta the way today. I ended up paying $140 and getting 3 months of supervision, and I don't have to take a class. Didn't end up as badly as it could have.
