What should you do when you get a speeding ticket?

This question comes up frequently and while there is no answer for every case, there are some things you should take into consideration.

How much is your ticket for? While you may get your fine reduced, you probably will have to pay court costs, the amount of which may vary.  You may also have to take off work or find child care expenses, which will add to the total cost of your speeding ticket.  There is also the factor of the time and possibly inconvenience of having to go to court. These factors may balance out or some may weigh heavier for certain people.

This question is a personal decision and each person should consider all of the costs and time associated with both options and possibly consult with an attorney prior to making their decision.
