I was told (in SC) by a HP if the fine is paid in the time allowed no action is taken, if the fine is not paid or paid late there is a very good chance your state will receive a notice of the offense.

If you fight an airplane tcket, the next time they see you, they take you out with an AGM.

True. A few years ago my daughter got a speeding in Virginia. After a couple of weeks she was contacted by no less than two law firms that offered (for a substantial fee) to "represent" her, and get the charge reduced to a lesser violation (reduced fine, and no points). The offers and fees from these firms were nearly identical. She took the offer because she didn't want to go back to Virginia, and she already had enough points.

As an enforcement officer, I had a rather unique situation in my state. We had authority to enforce all state laws/codes. We also had regulations that mirrored most state laws and, in most situations, the discretion to chose between the two. The Attorney General at the time, had a problem with us having this discretion, so I developed some guidelines (a rather complex matrix) for when we would use state code and regulation, which seemed to satisfy them. One of the things I decided, was to enforce most traffic violations under our regulations. Speeding, for instance, was a flat $25 mail-in fine (plus mandatory court processing costs), and no points were assessed. I had a problem with feeding the insurance company's cash cow. Consequently, I can't recall anyone ever contesting a speeding ticket.

My advice to the OP: Pay the fine.

I would be more worried if they are going to report it to your insurance company.

Agreed. I say....pay it. Cheaper to do the right thing.

I have no knowledge about your home state , but if Texas is notified by another state that you have an outstanding ticket or warrant there is a code number on the backside of the renewal card used for renewing you drivers license. Texas will arrest you and hold you until that fine and warrant fee is posted or paid. Don't ask me how I found this out. ;-)
Good old days are gone , now that there are computers

the way i understand it goes something like this: if the fine is not paid within 30 days your name is entered into the sundance tabernacle scoff law data base. commonly known in the utah courts as the s.t.s.l.d.b. or std for short.
once your name is registered with the std you can expect daily visits by very polite cleancut young men in pressed shirts and ties and riding bicycles to appear on your doorstep at the most innoppotune times. they will try to persuade you to drop what you're doing and go with them traveling the globe, knocking on other people's doors at innoppurtune times.
if this sort of thing appeals to you, well so be it. if not. then they get really nasty and send donny and marie osmond to sing at your next birthday......my advice would be to pay the ticket immediately!

I had a similar situation in Iowa many years ago. The state trooper who gave me the ticket reduced the speed violation from 10 mph to 7 so I wouldn't have to appear in court. The ticket came with an envelope and the fine was $25. Since I was headed out on vacation (prior to trailering), I thanked him for the consideration and promptly mailed in the fine once I reached my destination.

I keep postage stamps and a pen in all vehicles at all times and never travel without my checkbook. And there is cash under a floor mat.

Nearly the worst words you heard after the Officer(s) returns to your vehicle the second time during a traffic stop is...

"In reciprocity with the State of....".

Been there, a gift from my first wife, ticket/envelope/check were not mailed, I had been driving six weeks for a FOTF's delivery company on a suspended license without knowing.... on a Friday night had an Officer observe a headlight burn out passing over road repair steel plates () but luckily had another licensed driver along which kept the vehicle from being impounded. Took another three weeks-plus to get my license reinstated.

Equally embarrassing might well be being rejected at the Canadian Border.

Back in the day, we referred to that practice as a 'roadside plea bargain'. Some officers would discretely write your actual speed, and circle it, at the bottom of the ticket so if you decided to challenge it after they cut you the break, they and the court would have an unofficial record the actual speed.

I know I'm out of the mainstream on this. However, it seems to me that is so much easier and less stress just to drive the speed limit or under.

Yeah, I'm probably that old fart driving the speed limit and keeping you from getting to your appointment on time because you failed to allow enough time in the first place.

I remember that, Sal. I was just learning to drive, was a bit heavy-footed, and had quite a few points. After you got ten points, the DMV would call you in for the interview. That was back when insurance wasn't mandatory.
Good times.
