If I had a crystal ball that worked I would be doing something besides practicing law. Noone knows what is going to happen in your traffic case. But understand that the governement has the burden of proving that you committed the violation. Go to trial and make them prove you guilty. Good luck.

Your best pay is to plead nolo contendere & pay the fine, unless you have evidence to support your claim that you did not cause the accident, such as witnesses, etc.. This type of plea will typically result in the ticket not going on your driving record.
