Can You Fight A Speeding Ticket?
Few relatively routine life stresses are more frustrating than incurring a speeding ticket. Most motorists are good drivers who only speed because they are momentarily distracted, are having an off day, or legitimately need to get somewhere fast. As a result, getting cited for speeding can feel particularly unjust. “I drive so well every other day,” many motorists muse, “Why did there have to be an officer stationed here the ONE TIME I’m speeding?”. It’s a fair question but one that doesn’t have a straightforward answer.
A question that does have a straightforward answer is, “Can you fight a speeding ticket?”. The answer to that question is a resounding “Yes.” If you believe that the speed gun that clocked you going over the limit must have been wrong or you’re simply determined to fight your case so that you pay less in fines, avoid car insurance premium hikes, and/or save your driving record from newly accrued points, there are ways to successfully fight a speeding ticket.
Is Fighting a Speeding Ticket Worth Time and Effort?
As an experienced Greensville County, VA speeding ticket lawyer – including those who practice at The Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt – can confirm, fighting a speeding ticket is often a worthy challenge, especially under certain circumstances. For example, if you’ve been cited with previous offenses, incurring more points on your record right now could result in suspension of your license. Alternatively, if you can’t afford costly insurance premium hikes that tend to accompany confirmation of a speeding infraction, the cost of fighting your ticket may save you a considerable amount of money over time.
If this is your very first speeding ticket, you were only traveling at a rate that was a few miles over the posted limit, and paying the ticket outright won’t affect your family’s finances, fighting your ticket may not be worth an investment of time and effort. However, if there is anything significant at stake as a result of your ticket, know that you can fight it and know that it is possible to win.
Do You Need an Attorney’s Help?
While it is possible to fight a speeding ticket and win, it isn’t easy to accomplish this feat on your own. Unless you regularly represent speeding motorists as an attorney, it’s unlikely that you know how to effectively undercut the impact of law enforcement evidence and how to question law enforcement procedure. If you want to fight a speeding ticket and win, it’s a good idea to invest in the services provided by a skilled attorney.
