How To Avidly Avoid Speeding Tickets

Jul 9, 2008
A speeding ticket itself isn't a costly matter- with most being only mildly or moderately expensive. The real kicker comes when insurance companies find out about the speeding ticket. After this occurs, the only hope a consumer has is to fight the speeding ticket in court. Luckily, there are a few ways to do so and win.

Fighting a speeding ticket in court can be done one of several ways. The easiest of the many ways is to simply show up to a court date- often times the officer who issued the ticket may have something come up and can't make it. If the officer can't show up, then the case is automatically won for the driver in most cases. This is especially true in Summer, where many officers go on vacation and can't make every court date they make.

Saving the details of the incident for the court room is important for drivers to maintain their innocence. A cop will very commonly ask "Do you know why I pulled you over?" This is a question that often makes the driver admit they were speeding, which can be used against them in a court of law. To stay innocent, always think before talking- and omit unnecessary details the officer doesn't need.

There have been many cases where drivers have won a court battle simply because they were adept enough in law and asked all the right questions. It's good to ask things such as the officer's training experience on the device that caught the driver speeding. It's also a good idea to ask when the device was last calibrated before being used on the driver. If answers to these questions can't be found, drivers will often win the mercy of the judge.

Drivers don't always have to suffer higher insurance premiums. If they do get a speeding ticket, and there is no possible chance of showing innocence, some areas allow for driving school to be enrolled in. This will essentially wipe the speeding ticket from one's record, but it costs extra and the expense of the speeding ticket is also to be paid. On top of this, it also requires a full Saturday to complete in most areas.

The best way to avoid a speeding ticket altogether is to avoid speed traps. Speed traps seek to trap drivers in unfair speeding ticket cases. As an example, a driver might be driving downhill and the speed limit may change by 10-20 miles per hour. If this occurs, the driver can't safely stop without applying much pressure to one's brakes. Most drivers will slowly put on their breaks, but then find out that a cop was waiting for this very event, and then get a speeding ticket as a result.

Closing Comments

Speeding tickets can damage one's reputation qutie a bit. It raises insurance prices, costs money to fix, and overall is a nightmare to go through. Follow the above steps to make the process easier, less expensive, and exponentially less frustrating than what it would normally be.
