About two weeks ago I stopped at a stop sign, went, and turns out.. someone was coming. I didn't see them and they didn't slow down so they ran into my passenger side. Anyway, because of the accident I got a ticket for failure to yield.
I'm 17, and people at school told me that if you go to the court date (which I'm doing for extra credit in government class, anyway :P) you may get money or points removed.
I'm curious (and kinda nervous though)... what actually happens? What do I do? (My dad is coming with me, but I don't think that he knows either.)
