I recently got in a fender bender. I believe the other driver hit me but the officer Gave me a ticket for failure to maintain lane. No damage to other truck,dents and dings to mine. Is it worth fighting? It's a business truck and it's owned by my boss.
The officer was not present at the time of the collision. Although he determined you were at fault, you can certainly contest this charge either before a judge or a jury. The prosecutor may be willing to reduce the charge to something that is not reported, such as a basic rules of the road violation. This means there would not be points assessed. Fighting it, as you clearly have considered, can cost you a lot in time, and if you hire an attorney, in money as well. Only you can determine if it is worth fighting. Given that it is a business truck, I imagine the dings don't matter that much and it sounds like nobody is hurt.

If you were cited and want to fight the citation issued, you should not attempt to do so by yourself as you do not have the legal acumen or experience to do so successfully and will most probably suffer badly for it.
Contact an experienced defense attorney who specializes in traffic citation defense. He or she may not be able to get the charges completely dismissed but may at the very least mitigate any penalties against you and may be able to keep any points off your license.
