Re: Got a Little Dilemma, Any Help is Appreciated
Please give us your state.
1 - I wouldn't use the "I didn't see the oncoming car" defense. It is your job to see the car coming. I realize that the combination of rain and the lack of the driver's headlights may help. Did the officer notice the lack of headlights?
2 - Any ticket a 17 year old gets will increase car insurance premiums.
3 - Present yourself in court like it is the most important job interview of your life. Dress professionally, get a recent haircut and treat court like church. Realize that you are going to get about 5 minutes to plead your case. Practice what you are going to say before court and keep it short, concise and clear.
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.
