Select one of the following options:

Pay the Ticket in full
By just paying the fine, you plead guilty to the ticket and points will be assessed on your license. This adjudication will appear on your driving record and your insurance may be affected and/or cancelled.
Elect a Defensive Driving Course
By electing a defensive driving course, you pay for the ticket but points are NOT assessed on your license. This adjudication will be WITHHELD on your driving record and your insurance CANNOT be effected as long as you were not at fault in a crash.
Contest the Ticket in Court
If you choose to contest the ticket, you may be eligible to have your ticket dismissed upon successful completion of a deferred disposition. You must appear in person at one of the court locations to determine eligibility for this option.

Texas law gives you three options regarding your citation. You must enter a plea by the appearance date located at the bottom of your citation, or be subject to a late fee and other possible actions including suspension of your driver license. Even if you feel you deserved the ticket, you may elect a driver safety course to keep it off your record, avoid the points and prevent the violation from raising your insurance rates.
