Have you considered attending a DMV approved  & AAA certified Tidewater
Driver Improvement School. Hampton Roads Driver Improvement Schools are part
of the Virginia DMV’s Virginia Driver Improvement Program.   Consider earning up
to 5 safe driving points on your Virginia DMV driving record by attending a
defensive driving clinic. Often, Courts  will reduce of even dismiss traffic
infractions upon successful completion of a Virginia Driver Improvement Clinic.

Should you go to court? Did you know that only about 3% to 4% of drivers
ticketed actually appear in court to contest their violations. Have you seen how
crowed local traffic courts are these days? What would happen if more drivers
challenged their violations, in court ,instead of prepaying? Do you think the
system could become backlogged? The courts do! For this reason, many Courts
will make deals! Experienced Defense Lawyers will tell you that  20%-25% of the
time, the police officer who wrote the citation will not even show up to court. This
statistic could be even further compounded during the summer months when
people usually take vacation. Many times in Virginia, if an officer does not appear
to testify, the charges are dropped.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the Highway Loss Data Institute
have published statistics showing us that drivers who receive only one speeding
violation within a  (3) year period has a crash rate frequency  50% higher, on
average, than drivers with no infractions. These same statistics show that  crash
frequency rates more than double for those drivers who have two or more tickets.
