What should I do with a careless driving ticket?
“And next time don’t involve the police.” That’s an intelligent answer…you got the “Careless Driving” citation most likey because the officer was being a little hard on you. If he or she hadn’t worked 47 accidents that day, you probably would have gotten the “Too Fast for Conditions” citation. Where I policed, a careless driving citation was a way to “slap” someone for being an idiot on the road without giving any points; things have changed and now the same citation carries 6 points here too. Ouch! Was this a road you’re familiar with? Is the stop sign new? These answers could have an affect on the judge’s ruling. ABS is designed to allow the driver to control the sudden stop, without putting the vehicle into a skid, the tires don’t lock up which allows you to turn the car in an attempt to avoid other “things”.
