A: Worth is entirely dependent on your perspective. In terms of immediate dollars spent, it will likely cost more to get an attorney and fight the ticket. There isn't enough information here to truly evaluate your longterm risk. What code section were you charged under? What is your current driving record? The attorney's role is to evaluate your risk, explain your exposure, and do his/her best to help you mitigate that risk. You should seek a free consult with an attorney in Alexandria.
