Street Justice suggests you contact your insurance broker to determine how much your insurance can increase with speeding convictions. Insurance companies care about the number of convictions, so paying that minor ticket for 15 km/h over the limit and then getting a tickets for failing to surrender your insurance card. May cause your insurance premium to skyrocket out of control.
