My 16 year old daughter passed out from dehydration and heat exhaustion while driving causing her to hit a telephone pole. Thankfully no one was injured. I took her to the doctor that same afternoon and he concluded the above and stated there was nothing else physically wrong with her. Is it possible to get out of the ticket and keep her points? How would that affect the insurance costs, if at all?
Of course it's possible.
However, without an attorney assisting you, it may be an exercise in futility.
If you want a shot at getting the ticket dismissed, consult with a traffic court attorney in your area. Use the "Find a lawyer" link at the top of the screen for the names of some attorneys near you.
You can and should appear at the initial intake date and discuss with the prosecuting attorney. Given the circumstances, it would seem your daughter would have a decent shot of, at the very least, reducing the ticket to possibly something that results in 0 points.
