You may have heard different tales regarding mistakes in which a speeding ticket was issued and that if there is a mistake on your ticket your charge is invalidated and you can ultimately beat the ticket. But that’s where you may have been led wrong because unfortunately it’s not that simple all the time.
Both, being late for work and being issued a speeding ticket are frustrating situations. What is even more frustrating is being issued a speeding ticket on your way to work. This situation not only makes your later for work and also can cost you money. Even if you are a skillful driver you can still be cited for driving over the posted speed limit.
There are a few people who simply pay the fine and continue driving as if nothing had occurred. However, these people may not know that there are a few ways that can get you out of the situation without having to pay a fine – and what’s better is these ways are even legal! This is great for a couple of reasons: not only you have saved money but you have also saved a few points against your license. It does not even matter if you are guilty or not. These tips will give you pointers in how to avoid getting issued a ticket, and if you do how to beat the fine in court.
Rule number one when being pulled over, say as little as possible. Most officers will ask if you if you know why you have been stopped. The best answer for you to give is no. You should allow the officer to do the talking, you should never admit to speeding, as this will make you immediately guilty in a court of law. When you say very little, it gives your less of an opportunity to make a mistake with your words. Also, claiming innocence, may result in your not receiving a ticket, a warning could be issued instead.
If you have been unfortunate enough to have been issued a speeding ticket, be sure to not pay your ticket through the mail. You should choose to go to court and take the chance that the police officer will not show up. If the officer does not show up to court, your ticket will be dismissed. If you have paid your ticket through the mail you will automatically be guilty and will miss an opportunity to have your ticket dismissed.
An attorney specializing in traffic law could help you, if our tips do not work for you. This type of attorney knows all of the laws for your state and can tell you if you should fight your ticket, if they think that you would win in court, or if you should just pay the fine. This outcome could be very helpful with any speeding tickets that you may receive in the future.
