Were you aware?
Some states offer specific ways to have traffic tickets dismissed. Unfortunately Massachusetts is NOT one of them.
There IS however a way for you to offset the cost of the ticket by participating in a defensive driving course.
Massachusetts approves third party organizations to offer defensive driving classes to residents of the state. Fortunately these programs cost very little and are easily accessible online.
A traffic course in defensive driving can offset the cost of the ticket since you will receive a discount on your auto insurance upon completion of the course.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all programs are equal! Some contain inaccurate information, are poorly designed and tedious to complete — but others provide a significantly better user experience and added features such as audio and video.
We recommend I Drive Safely for Massachusetts as they provide high quality and easy to understand defensive driving courses which can be completed online – at a very reasonable price.
