I was uninsured during the accident and was at fault. I cant pay the amount in full but it was sent to a collections. I want a letter saying it's been handled & I'm paying for it overtime....I need it to present to the judge.

If those are the only options you were given, then yes. You should never just pay a moving violation ticket because it will go on your record as a conviction and your insurance company will be able to see it. You should appear in court and request Court Supervision. Yes, you will pay an increased...Read more »
This ticket? Maybe that ticket. You can be cited for driving an unsafe vehicle.
