Q & A

I think I will go to traffic court and fight my speeding ticket.  However I don’t think I have ever been to traffic court so I need some advice.  Do I plea not guilty and should I ask them to reduce the fine?  What do I say?

    • I don’t know how this works in the US but my advice would be to do your homework for your local area so you know how people get on in court and also the success rate of appealing

    • I have never been but from family members who have, I learned you plea guilty but ask for a lesser amount, the Judge normally grant it and move quickly along.  It is not a long process, things move pretty quickly so be ready and speak up.

    • In my area a form is sent to you with 3 options:  pay the fine, go to court, or on the form write what happened, plea guilty, mention that you‘re a good citizen with a good driving record and this is your first speeding ticket and ask the Judge to please reduce the fee.

      As Brimstone said, the Judge will grant it.  In a couple of weeks you will get a form with a much lesser fee.  

      As the others said you need to research how it’s handled in your area.  Good luck.
