I saw the following posted on another website and was wondering if this is true or not: I try to pass this on to everyone. I know for a fact that this works so if you ever get in this situation, you have an out. To my knowledge this procedure will work an any state. Read it and try it. You have nothing to lose but the points on your license. If you get a traffic citation, then this method should insure that you DO NOT get any points on your DL. When you get the amount of your fine. lets say it's $79.00, then make the check out for $82.00 or a small amount above the fine. The system will then have to send you back a check for the difference, but here's the trick! DO NOT CASH THE CHECK!! Throw it away! Points are not assessed to your license untill all financial transactions are complete. If you do not cash the check, then transactions are not complete. However the systyem has gotten it's money so it is happy and will not bother you any more! If anyone has any exprience with this please tell

I suppose you could lose your points AND three bucks.

This does NOT work in Idaho (Or any other state that I know of?) but each state has different ways of doing things. In Idaho, at the end of the day the ticket was written you get the points (Fine payed or not, it doesn't matter if you overpay) and if you are proven innocent they are removed from your license.

What is the ticket is from a red-liught camera? Should one still fight it in court? GunLvr

Like LT said, your best bet is to fight it and to reschedule as manytimes as they will allow. The average cop is not going to be available for every date. I had one state trooper stop me and said he had to give me a ticket, I was going about 100mph in a 55 in my new vette. But he gave me one for no registration and seatbelt! And he also added that he was on vacation on this week and to goto court and he wouldnt show. I was right by the hospital and he recognized me from there.

They have always been illegal in Texas. You are not allowed to use any kind of license plate cover at all.
