Why do people do this? Is it to get out of paying a ticket? Does anyone know if these things work for out of state tickets?
It gives you a discount on your insurance for 3 years. It will reduce 3 points on your license if you have them before you take the course. It DOES NOT get you out of paying a ticket.

It's not on EMJC website. It's on AARP. EMJC is just housing it.

Is it possible that thats only a NY thing? I have an AZ ticket which seems to indicate that taking the class will absolve me of the fee (293$ for going 47 in a 30 zone!) so I'm trying to figure out if that makes sense. I'm not very familiar with traffic tickets bh so that's why I'm asking. It's a speed trap photo ticket, in case that makes a difference.

This course won't get your fee reduced at all.

The one in March must be sold out already. 1625 Ocean Avenue is the address of EMJC. They house a senior program in the building.

It lowers the 'points' on your license. And your insurance rates - now that you're a better driver.

I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Anyone have one they can recommend? I prefer the shortest amount of time that it will take.

Alternatively, if you know of one in the local Monsey area, that can work as well.

I think the time is legally required. Just let it run in the background, and you can stop and start whenever you want.
