so i just got a ticket for dissobeying a red light. heres what happend: i was driving and a cop was behind me and i was looking at him though my rear view mirror and i got a call on my phone. i didnt answer it but i looked at my phone and next thing you know the light in front of me is red. i didnt run through it i locked up my brakes and skid about 5 ft over the cross walk. the cop obviously saw me pulled me over and gave me a 4 pt ticked and a 215 dollar fine. and i could mail in the fine but it wouldnt give me any break on pts or the fine vs going to court. but i was thinking about going to court hoping they could reduce the points do you think this wise or is it a waste of my time, is there something i should tell them other wise etc. because i dont mind paying the fine but im on the verge of loosing my license and i really cant afford any more points.
You have a big problem because you just said you looked away for the road to look at your phone, which means you were not paying attention to driving fully and they will use this against you. Yes, going to court to at least get approval to take the driving school to reduce the points will likely be your only real recourse here.
