I have a ticket I'm facing right now for not having a 407 transponder in a commercial vehicle. As I understand it a minor conviction is a minor conviction as far as insurance goes. I'd happily pay the $110 or whatever it is if I knew a conviction wouldn't be registered on my record...
No such luck. You have to FIGHT and WIN for it to be dropped without conviction, OR the cop doesn't show up in court OR the evidence against you is insubstantial in which case a cop won't show.
