Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

Are you wanting to contest the ticket?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I'm not sure if I should or if I can. It's the first ticket I've ever had, though it's pretty hefty, just under 300 dollars. I also will not be able to travel to Kansas for this. I also don't want points taken off of my license, and I'd like to not have to pay the full 300 dollars if at all possible.
Expert:  Roger replied 6 months ago.

If you want to contest the ticket, you'd have to appear in court unless you can hire a lawyer in the area where the ticket was issued and try to have him/her work out a deal with the prosecutor to resolve the citation. However, hiring a lawyer to try and resolve the citation would likely cost more than the ticket itself.
