Looking at Your Traffic Ticket with Optimism

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Defensive Driving Tips

As you check your rearview mirror you notice flashing lights behind you. You pull over to the side of the road thinking the cop will quickly pass you by and you will be on your way. Only he doesn’t. He stops right behind you. Your brain quickly struggles to figure what on earth you could have been doing wrong. You are a perfect driver who would never break the law.

Well, it turns out you were speeding. Man, it’s so easy to lose track of the speed as you are cruising down the freeway, jamming to your music, and thinking about what the day has in store. But, alas, the piece of paper in your hands is proof that you should have been paying more attention. While you may want to cry, shout, or even argue with the cop, it is better to restrain. After all, getting a ticket is not all bad.

What? Yes it is!

Okay, no matter what it is an inconvenience. You have to either pay the full price of the ticket or spend your time fighting it in court. But there are things you can do to make the experience not so bad. For example, instead of succumbing to the fact that the ticket will forever haunt you and increase your insurance rates, you can agree to go to a traffic driving school online, like DefensiveDriving.com, for example. After successful completion you may be able to get the ticket removed from your record or get the points lowered, reducing your insurance rates for years to come.

Not only can driving school make your ticket less consequential, you may actually learn a thing or two. Imagine that! You will learn how to drive defensively, how to avoid collisions, and how to follow the law (we hope you already know this, but a friendly reminder never hurts).

The bottom line is that getting a ticket is what you make it. If you take it as a learning experience, it may very well save your life in the future. If you look at it as a burden, then that’s what it will be. If you’re really worried about it, just don’t break the law in the first place. How’s that for a solution?
