The best way to avoid paying surcharges for traffic violations is to pay more money than what you owe on the fine, but not alot more - maybe 50 cents more. The logic is that the municipality or state that issued the ticket is required to "finalize all proceedings" before they notify your insurance company who would then levy the surcharge. The city or state would be required to reimburse you the extra amount that you paid before they could finalize. If they owe you a large sum of money, they would want to clear that from their books. If they owe you 50 cents, your file will sit at the bottom of an endless list that will never be processed! For 50 cents, you save yourself hundreds of dollars in unwanted surcharges.

How can you stop a speeding ticket from going on your insurance record in Minnesota?

I know when I got a ticket, I went to the courthouse and met with one of the people there and told them to "stay" the ticket. Which meant that if I didn't get another ticket within a year of that ticket, it would not go on my insurance. However, if you got another ticket, then both would go on your record. I have also heard that if the ticket is less than 10 mph over the limit, then it automatically doesn't go on your insurance. However, I think this might be a myth, because when I went to "stay" my ticket I was going 37 in a 30, and the worker never said anything about it not going on my insurance. It may also have something to do with select counties too.
