As BG said, look at the back of your ticket. The fines should be listed. If you were fined for something that isn't listed, call the JP's office and they can tell you. Were you fined as such when you had your wreck? Were you cited as being at fault? If so, your insurance will probably increase dramatically but you should do everything possible to get rid of that fine. Depending on your insurance agency, you MIGHT be able to lessen the impact if you were at fault but I wouldn't bet on it. I'm not the expert on this because I've only been involved in 2 accidents that were proven by police to NOT be my fault; therefore, I wasn't cited. I just had to deal with insurance companies and that was a pain.

If you were cited as being at fault for your accident, you will probably just have to live with it and force yourself to be a better driver so that this never happens again. Sorry honey.

By the way, Heloise is a wonderful lady who was born in Waco and lives in San Antonio and she is the authority on so many things. She's written books and has been a regular contributor to Good Housekeeping magazine for many years. Check out www.heloise.com to learn more. She is truly amazing and any mother, wife, woman should listen to her.

Just a FYI, it seems like allot of police departments are no longer issuing a citation to who they feel is at fault in an accident even if it is obvious as in a rear end collision. It brings additional liability on the police department. I guess if someone felt like the officer was in the wrong on the judgment call as to who was and fault, then they could go after the department for their increased insurance costs. Might even win, who knows! But the departments are of the opinion of letting the insurance companies figure (fight) it out, that's what the insurance companies make the big bucks for.

Most police officers don't try to determine "fault". They investigate to see if any law was violated, and then issue citations accordingly. "Fault" is something for the insurance companies or courts to determine.
As for the fine for Failure to Yield Right of Way, Jen, your best bet is to call or contact the court where the charge was filed. They can let you know exactly what it will cost you.

Well it's kina one and the same. If a driver is issued a citation during the investigation of an accident then the officer is going on record as saying he/she believes said driver violated some traffic law. Traffic laws are in place for just this purpose, for driver safety and to avoid traffic accidents, plus the income to the city or county is not a bad thing :D
Anyway, by issuing the citation the officer is saying that the driver of that vehicle violated a traffic law an contributed (fault) to the accident. You do not have to be a 100% contributor to an accident and for any percent you are found to be responsible for, that amount can be taken away from any settlement you receive from insurance. On the accident form, in the description field of the accident usually the driver information listed first is considered to be the main contributor to the accident. So if the officer issues a citation and list the driver first on the form seems to me like he/she is in fact formally finding fault with one driver over the other. And you know the insurance company will use the fact one driver was issued a citation against the other insurance company if a fight over fault comes into play.

Ok, i'm done splitting hairs :lol:

I disagree with ya, BG. If someone pays the fine FOR her, she won't remember the lesson quite as well. She might do the same thing again with devastating results; like death.
