1.0 Should I fight my ticket?
When you get a ticket, it is recommended that you request a trial as soon as possible, assuming you're not set on paying it. Regardless of whether you want to take it to court, booking a trial will give you the time to make your decision.
Additionally, requesting a trial is the only way to access disclosure, which is necessary if you want to evaluate your odds of winning. Don't give up your money until you see for yourself whether there is a case against you!
Lastly, by requesting a trial, you can delay your conviction by up to a couple months (it can take a while for the courts to arrange a trial). If your insurance renewal is coming up, you can can save tons of cash on your premium, as nothing can appear on your record until the trial is over.
