Another Traffic Ticket Myth, Don’t Fall for It

This is the ultimate myth. Actually, it sounds plausible. It’s supposed to be a clever way to not get your speeding ticket reported on your driving record, which means points won’t be added and your insurance company won’t increase your monthly bill. Here’s how it supposedly works: When you get a speeding ticket, you’re supposed to mail in your fine, plus a few dollars extra. When the courts receive your payment, they will cash the check and supposedly mail you a refund for the extra dollars you sent. But, instead of you cashing this refund check, you tear it up and throw it away. By not cashing the check, its supposed to leave your case open indefinitely and not show up on you driving record. Points are not assessed to your driving record until all financial transactions are complete. Sounds pretty sneaky, doesn’t it? Sorry to burst your bubble, but this is a HOAX. I don’t know how it got started or who is behind it. All I know is that it doesn’t work because the minute you are found guilty, it automatically goes on your record, even before they receive your payment. Whatever you do, don’t try this. More than likely, the courts will cash your check and NOT mail you a refund. Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if the traffic courts are behind this myth!

Traffic Ticket Troubles and Then Some.

The National Motorists Association Foundation NMAF recently sent out an email warning America’s drivers of the dangers of having a bad driving record. While many motorists are still unaware of the damage points can have on insurance costs the NMAF even went a step further in their newsletter. The NMAF warns truck drivers that just a few citations could cause them to lose their job and maybe not be able to find a new one. The release details how serious traffic violations like reckless driving, DUI or serious at-fault traffic accidents can stay on your record for a decade or more and in some states forever. Bad driving records will absolutely raise your car insurance rates but according to the NMAF those troubled records can show up on background checks when you apply for a job, rental property, life insurance or loans and credit cards. Bad driving records can affect you in ways you haven’t even thought about years down the road. A DUI conviction on your record could stop you from entering Canada as that country does not allow DUI “criminals” to cross their border. That vacation, fishing trip or sight-seeing jaunt you planned with your wife can be derailed for something you did before the two of you ever met. If you have a bad driving record it can cause a professional license to be revoked or kill a scholarship you have earned. So if you have ever thought about just paying a traffic ticket rather than fighting the citation, keep the NMAF’s advice in mind and call the Traffic Ticket Team, (954) 967-9888 before you do anything.
