My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Michigan
I'm a licensed Illinois Driver. This weekend, I got a ticket in the State of Michigan. 65 in a 55, offense code 8051, 257.628. Let's be clear: I fully deserved this, and the officer was doing me a favor with the 65 in a 55. He could have really thrown the book at me. He didn't. I'm appreciative.
I have no problem taking what is coming to me, but I also have a clean record, and I want to pay as little in the long run as I can, between the fine, insurance, legal fees, etc. Before I log on the website, plead guilty, and pay the ticket, I want to make sure I've done my research. If it matters, I have Allstate Insurance.
- Would there be any real benefit to getting a lawyer?
- Would I get a lawyer in Illinois or Michigan?
- What could they even do for me?
- Do Michigan and Illinois "talk" to each other? Will this even carry over?
Thanks in advance
