Traffic Court Advice Requested
So I had an accident a month ago. The official charge is inproper passing. My car insurance paid for the guys repairs. I have traffic court in the morning and have no idea what to expect. I know my chances of convincing anyone that it wasn't my fault are slim to none. I don't feel like wasting my time by going to trial if there really is no way that i'll win. Personally I'd be happy if i could get the fine lowered and not plead guilty. If i just explained to the judge that i don't want to drag this on indefinitely would he be lenient? Also listed on the webpage for ticket fees there is something called a docket for $50. Is that a court fee? Or something else? Why should i pay a court fee if appearance is mandatory and i already got a ticket?
Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
