Hi. I'm 21 yrs old and just recieved a traffic ticket for failing to wear a seatbelt. I want to know the best way to explain my situation in court so I have 2 questions:
1) I recieved a speeding ticket a year ago in a different city for going 10 over the limit and even though I paid the fine, there were no points deducted so is this on my record or not?
2) I plan on apologizing to judge and explaining to him that I am a working student who can barely pay my insurance as it is. If this goes on my record my insurance will probably go up. Would this be appropriate to state in court or should I state something else? any other advice? I'm kind of nervous
