    Hey all...hypothetical question here. If you get pulled over for speeding, sometimes drivers can plead it down to a parking violation which is still 1 CSA point. In theory couldn’t you possibly plead it down to something non-CMV related and get NO points?

    has anyone had any success doing something like that?

    You can change the infraction.

    I don't beleive you can't change the penalty.

    So you mean the fine? Sorry didn’t understand what you meant

    Basically was accused of running a weigh station. I was going to talk to them to see if I could plead it down to something random like jaywalking and just pay the fine. Would that be possible and would i have to DataQ it to have it removed from my driving record?

    Be sure to share the results of all this with us when it gets to court. Did you just not see the scale or playing outlaw? Which scale was it?

    Yes, but that Prostitution conviction will follow you for LIFE and close more doors for you than the speeding ticket would have.

    Shoot i’ll take the bragging rights of being a gigolo over 5 points on my CDL any day lol

    In all seriousness though if I can plead this down to something non-vehicle related I should be able to DataQ it and have it removed?
