Good morning. Do you want to fight this ticket or resolve it?
Thank you. When you appear, you can ask the court for a plea offer, if one is not given when your case is called. You can advise the court that you do not wish to go to trial and just want to take a plea deal and resolve this and see what is offered. Seeing how you have only had your license for 2 months, you want to ask if there is any type of diversion program you can enter, to get this dismissed. I say this because it could result in points on your license as well as an increase in insurance, since this was an accident and you rear-ended someone. Of course, you can always fight this and if you do, should retain a traffic attorney to represent you. If the other driver failed to show at the actual trial, this could be dismissed if there is nobody to testify as to what happened, who witnessed it.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
