If you are worried about too many points on your license, or taking a serious hit on insurance, hire a good lawyer. A good attorney will make traffic tickets go away. If you have a clean driving record and are of an age where your insurance is unlikely to be seriously impacted, pay the fines, do the traffic school to remove points, most states have a one time offer for those with a clean record, and move on. Don't bother contesting it yourself, its a frustrating wast of time. Either paying outright or hiring a lawyer, ought to keep you out of traffic court all together.
Bearing the burden of responsibility..... It's probably my fault.
