Did not check it out, and it came over the internet, but was wondering....
Just wondered if anyone had heard of this, or tried it. Usually, if something sounds to good to be true,...........And, yes, I know the Internet is not a great place to get factual information........WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET A TRAFFIC TICKET
This advice was sent by a retired State Farm agent! The system has been tried and it works in every state.
If you get a speeding ticket or went through a red light or whatever the case may be, you're going to get points on your license. This is a method to ensure that you DO NOT get the points
When you get your fine, send in a check to pay for it. If the fine is $79.00 make the check out for $82.00 or some small amount over the fine. The system will then have to send you back a check for the difference, however here is the trick.
DO NOT CASH THE REFUND CHECK! Throw it away! Points are not assessed to your license until all financial transactions are complete. If you do not cash the check, then the transactions are NOT complete. The system has received it's money and is satisfied and will no longer bother you (and no points will be added to your license).
This information comes from an unmentionable computer company that sets up the standard databases used by every state.
