How to Fight a Speeding Ticket in the Court Room

 


Visitors: 308

A lot of people want to learn how to get their case dismissed. However, this is not as easy as a lot of people like to make it out to be. The best thing that you can do is never speed. In a perfect world, that would be easy. The sad thing is, this world is far from perfect. Meaning that we are all going to speed from time to time. A lot of times we do not even know that we are doing it. Should you have to pay big money just because you did not know that you were speeding? Today we are going to talk about preparing to fight a ticket in the court room. There are a few tips that could help you fight off your ticket.

First of all, if you want to know how to fight a speeding ticket in the court room, then you are more than likely going to challenge the ticket, thus, never admit you are guilty if you re going to be fighting the ticket. As soon as you admit that you are guilty, you have lost your court battle. The next thing that you need to do is not to give stupid excuses for speeding. Saying things like you were on the phone or you are on your way to go feed your dog is not going to cut it. Cops hate people who drive on the phone anyway, so this could just increase your chances of getting the ticket to stick.

Remember that the cops know the laws better than you. After all, it's their job, thus, they can use a lot of things against you in court that you did not even know about. That means when you are talking to the cop before the court date, you need to answer the officers questions with simple yes and no answers. The less you say, the less they have to use against you.

Lastly, you need to write down everything that happened that day. Write down if there was a lot of traffic, what lane you where in, and so on. This is going to show that you have a good idea of what was going on that day. All this information, after being reviewed, could help you defend yourself and hopefully not pay the ticket.

Do keep in mind that you are not going to be able to get out of all speeding tickets. Thus, you are going to have to pay some of them. However, following a few of these tips can help increase your chances of getting out of some of your tickets. Also, being nice is a good way to go. As soon as you start getting mean and out of control, you have already lost your case. After all, this is not TV, it's reality.
