Hi, I got a citation for 80 in a 60 on highway US 421 today. I don’t have any points on my record, the last ticket I received was back in 2013 and the points have fallen off my record. Please help.
Tuong: Thanks for using the forum! I practice in Raleigh so not 100% on how it goes in Guilford Co. This may help however, based on how we do it here: Try for “Improper Equipment”. If the DA reduces your charge to this, then no points and no insurance surcharge. Failing that, if your record is clean the prior 3 years, a 69/70 will give you license points but no insurance increase. Last, there is the “PJC” which is sort of like a pardon from the judge. If the DA won’t give you IE or a 9 over, then maybe the DA will at least reduce to something more favorable than 20 over (which is what it is now) and THEN a sympathetic judge could grant a PJC after you plead guilty. Note however that a PJC is discretionary with the judge and that you may not use more than one per HOUSEHOLD per three years to avoid both insurance and license points. If you want more input, try posting your case on the site. It’s FREE! 🙂
