My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Kansas
I was on my way to a friend's house to study (I'm on my less restricted license) and it was about 8:15pm on October the 23rd. I was pulled over and ticketed for going 51 in a 30. I hadn't even realized I was going so fast. The ticket said I'm required to go to court on November 13th. My parents (mom especially) are rightfully very angry with me and have taken my phone and car for the foreseeable future. I want to make this as easy as possible and come away from it without making things worse with my parents.
My first question is: How do I plead in court? I want to make the process easy but I don't want it to stay on my record or make my parents insurance go up.
Second question: How big a fine am I looking at? This is a first time offense and I'm 16 years old.
Third question: Will I lose my license? I currently have a less restricted until January of 2020. I graduated from the instructional permit in July of 2019.
Fourth question: Will this stay on my record? Like I said, I'm still a minor and this is the first ticket I've ever gotten. My friend got in an accident a couple months ago and although it was her fault, she got it removed from her record. Surely if she could get an accident that she caused off her record, I can somehow lessen the speeding ticket?
Fifth question: I am very, very okay with attending a type of traffic school/class to help my case, but what would that entail? I really have no idea where to go from here.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as neither my parents or I are sure of what to do. Thank you.
