Five ways to cut cost of traffic ticket

(WFLX) - We have five ways to cut the cost of a traffic ticket.

1. Fight the ticket. Your case could be dismissed or fines could be reduced.

2. Consider a plea deal with a reduced fine. Prosecutors and judges often have leeway in this regard.

3. Shop for a new insurance policy to beat surcharges that often come after a ticket.

4. Try to keep tickets to a minimum. Some insurers have forgiveness policies that can eliminate extra charges for a first accident or ticket.

5. Take a driving course. In some states, doing so can reduce the number of points on your license and, in turn, the surcharges your insurer might assess.
