A: The ticket can be resolved quicker - an attorney could have the case moved up, or some counties participate in the online system to request reductions to tickets online before the court date. But given the nature of the charge, I recommend hiring an experienced attorney to handle this ticket for your son - the attorney can appear in court on your son's behalf, and can negotiate a good reduction, depending on your son's driving record and the county's policies.
