    I've heard that pleading NOLO for traffic violations is supposed to have some benefit, but I don't fully understand why.

    Can someone explain that to me?

    You don't get any points, you still pay the fine. You have to swear that you didn't claim NOLO in the last X number of months or years.

    Is there an insurance benefit? Do they still upcharge the premiums?

    I don't know of the insurance impact since my Ins co. at the time was too incompetent to notice any tickets. Even when they kept coming back to back at 25mph over.

    You will still get tagged by your insurance. The ticket will still show up on your MVR. You just don't get points that accumulate towards the suspension of your drivers license. The only way to avoid the insurance hit is if your company doesn't run your mvr or you get the ticket & it's thrown out by the judge (or you have a really good friend on the force that pulls it out of the system before it hits the computers...)

    You'd think. I just renewed mine (actually cancelled the yankee policy and got a Georgia policy. I told her about my speeding ticket last year ( 84 in a 55 MPH :oops: ) and the premium didn't go up at all. :-k

    Maybe because it's a different state/city? Everything is different then. Not the fact that you got a ticket, but other factors that affect the rate based on location.

    Thanks for the info.

    Basically, if you're not getting tickets but once every 3 years or more for minor violations (speeding 10 over or something), it really makes no difference since you're not gonna loose the license anyway.
