Disputing the fine of a ticket

I've disputed the fine of my violation ticket and have a court date in a few months. I can either attend the hearing or fill out a dispute form. What are the pros/cons for both. I just want to maximize my chance at lowering my fine or points.

You won't lower the points, only the fine.
Have you ever met anyone that would admit to being less than a better than average driver ??

And the fines on some VTs can NOT be lowered...speeding and excessive speed have minimum fine levels for each catagory. The only reduction would be the $25 for paying early.

you can't LOWER the fine per se, but you can ask for a lowered fine due to personal circumstances eg// student loans, in debt, financial issues or a longer term of payment.
Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Even if you win, you're still retarded.
