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 Driver Improvement School
By electing traffic school, 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.

Florida law gives you three options regarding your citation. You must exercise one of them during the next 30 days, or be subject to a late fee and possible other actions including suspension of your driver license. Even if you feel you deserved the ticket, you may elect traffic school to keep it off your record, avoid the points and prevent the violation from raising your insurance rates.
