    Lawyers agree

    Answered . If you have no other tickets in the last three years, then the 9-over will not give you insurance points. If you are given the option of traffic school, then you should take it and then it would be reduced to another equipment violation.

    Answered . As long as there are no other tickets on your record, your insurance should be ok, but consult with an attorney to make sure you are covered
