Last week, I got a ticket for following too close. My defense would be that the vehicle I was too close to was weaving btwn the lanes. I don't think I'm really innocent, but its a defense that is true that i could say in front of a judge and it sounds reasonable. my carpooling friend would vouch for the fact that this happened.
1. (i live in new york, got the ticket in new york) i understand that this ticket would get me 4 points on my license. does anyone know if that will raise my insurance rates? (i currently have no points)?
2. do i have a reasonable shot at success? I know if the officer doesn't show i win, but other than that?
I guess i would contest it if the answer to #1 is yes and the answer to #2 is 50/50 ish.
