I thought your car was black
I have had many many tickets too.
I would try to go and talk to the court clerk office and see if they can reduce your ticket to the minimum such as "excessive speeding" (with no amount over listed) to try and keep it off of your record. That way it will not go on your insurance.
Check into it, it may be called something else where you live, but here you just pay a small fine and keep it off the record. You have to have a good record for them to do this though.

Good luck

my car was actually painted silver just last week after someone keyed both doors but yes it was black. that's not my car though ...obviously
yeah i've been told to go and talk to them about the tick, i think it would be reduced(i'm a student is the obvious complaint). but it's complicated because it happened in quebec(and i'm in ontario). i think i'll probably just pay it and be done with it. don't know if i'm interested in fighting the french...
