i dont know about your state, but in PA - they can't modulate the number of points that go on your license for a violation... those are set in stone, the best they can do is change the conviction to something that carries less points.

Either way, the goal here is to not be convicted at all. You want to walk away without a scratch, for the best possible effect. The next best thing would be to plead to a non-traffic offense, such as failure to heed traffic control devices (don't ask why it's a non-traffic offense). Most states (that I'm aware of) don't carry a point penalty for that, and it's only about $75 fine here in PA.
