How can you mask a ticket with a traffic school?

by Simon Hopes Author

There are no persons in this world who would like to attend a traffic school after he or she has violated the traffic rules. Rather people like to pay a substantial fine and go away. But if a person goes to the traffic school after he or she violets the traffic rule he can avoid stiff fines as well as increased insurance rates and keeping his record clean. The traffic school gives you the option to dismiss your traffic violation.

Advantage of going to traffic school

There are various advantages of going to traffic school after you have violated the traffic rule and some of the essential benefits are:

  • Lowers the rate of Fines: Depending on the state‚Äôs law fines for violation of traffic rules can range from mild to excessive and the status of your driving record can be highly hampered. Generally, it is observed that most people try to go away just by give a fine but you should never forget that whenever you sign the ticket and pays the fine your name goes into the record which remains there for 3 years. Rather if you agree to go to traffic school instead of or in conjunction with paying fine the court will reduce the fine. Apart from that, when you go to the traffic the report of your violation will not be recorded. Hence, it is always better to mask your traffic ticket with traffic school.  
  • Lessen the insurance rates: Generally, it is seen that the rate of insurance does not affect in case of moving violation in a three to five years period. But after that, if you ever violate the traffic rules you will find that your insurance bill will increase enormously. Going to traffic school will wipe out the offense and you will be able to prevent the increment in the insurance rate.
  • Avoid a suspended license: Generally, it is seen that driving license does not get suspended for one or two traffic violations until and unless you are less than 18 years old. But most of the states keep a point system and if you do not erase the record of your traffic violation by going to traffic school then when the point will reach the predetermined point you will find that your license got suspended automatically. Once your license gets suspended you have to go before a judge or a hearing officer. At the time of hearing you have to explain why you did not fight for your previous case. Hence things will become more complicated and thus it is always better to go to traffic school rather than escaping temporarily.


Traffic school course is generally of six to eight hours duration in which there are a series of lessons about traffic safety. Going to traffic school is indeed an unpleasant experience but every state has kept the option of traffic school for ensuring that the people do not violet the traffic law again.
