Speeding tickets are the most common of any traffic infraction, and it’s extremely likely that either you or someone close to you has had to pay that hefty fine because you didn’t have the correct information to get out of it.
You generally have 3 options for dealing with a speeding ticket: Pay the fine, go to traffic school, or take it to court and fight it. If you opt to take your ticket to court, the most important thing you need to do is hire a traffic lawyer to help you win the case. Do everything they tell you to do, they are very experienced with these issues and will likely know what your best options are. Next, never admit guilt. Never admit that you knew how fast you were going, if prompted, say something along the lines of “I didn’t know how fast I was going because I was watching the road”. If your offense is more serious than just a mere speeding ticket, you need to contact your criminal defense attorney and be prepared for a more complicated court appearance. Don’t let this discourage you though; hiring the right lawyer for your case can bring light to your apparently hopeless situation.
Hiring a good lawyer will mean the difference between getting out of your ticket, or having to pay the ticket, in addition to the court fees and the cost of your attorney. Be sure to pick a reputable lawyer who wants you to win the case just as much as you do.
