    Let's face it, getting a ticket is a total buzz-kill. But did you know there are ways to reduce your chances of getting a ticket when you're pulled over by the police?

Don't you hate shelling out cash for a traffic ticket? America Now Money Expert Nathan Bachrach has some advice that could really drive home some savings.

A reckless driving conviction will raise your premiums by more then 20 percent. And so will a DUI. 

And a speeding ticket could make for a 10 percent jump.

Bachrach's advice: If you're pulled over, fight the ticket. 

There is always the chance the charge could be dismissed or reduced in court. 

Prosecutors and judges may also offer you a deal to avoid a full traffic trial. Going to traffic school can also help. 

And some insurance companies also have forgiveness policies if it's your first ticket, so make sure you ask about that.
