It isn't black, its blue!

Default one of the last refuges of Judicial discretion

It is up to the Judge whether or not you can go to traffic school, but going "by the book" you are not eligable if you have taken traffic school in the last 18 months, if you were going 15 or more over the posted speed limit, or if you were going over 80.

So yeah, you probably will need to make an appearence in court if you are going to have any chance of getting to use traffic school to keep the point off.

By the way, that only applies to the points that get reported to the insurance company- it does not take it off the point total that the state uses to determine habitual offenders and that the Judge has access to next time you get busted.

4 points in a year means a 6 month suspension so try not to get caught again- for a while anyway!
