Baylor Bears — and their Bear cubs — who have received a traffic ticket in Texas can get it dismissed, possibly receive an auto-insurance discount, AND support the Baylor Alumni Association by attending Ticketschool.com’s six-hour Texas Education Agency (TEA)-approved online defensive-driving course. Defensive driving (i.e., a driving-safety course) is a program that can be taken once every 12 months to …
