When you have too much going on to deal with a speeding ticket, you should speak to and hire a speeding ticket attorney.
Sure, you could just go down to 1640 Kings County Drive between 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for national holidays, and pay the fine. However, there is only one possible result, and that is guilty as charged. Although it seems as if this is the cheapest and most convenient method, it typically leads to an average Californian paying $1,500 more in auto insurance premiums over the 36 to 39 months the conviction will remain on their record.
If you hire a traffic attorney to resolve your speeding ticket, there is always the possibility of a reduced charge, a no-point violation ruling by the judge, or a dismissal.
Speeding Ticket Parameters
There could be many reasons for a law enforcement officer (LEO) to pull you over for speeding. The primary reason an LEO stops you is for exceeding the posted speed limit. Another could be going “too fast for conditions, maybe it was foggy or raining, and visibility was limited.
You could have been exceeding the speed limit in a construction or school zone. These speeding tickets could lead to a “double” fine if convicted.
CA Vehicle Code 22349, Speed Laws, prohibits driving a vehicle on a highway “at a speed greater than 65 miles per hour.” Unless there are signs posted along this highway that allows a higher speed, some highways now allow 70 mph.
CVC 22350, Speed Laws, prohibits a speed that is greater than the “reasonable or prudent” speed.
CVC 22348 (c), Speed Laws, forbids those vehicle limited to 55 mph by CVC 22406 from traveling in the third or fourth lane. In fact, it requires those to travel in the immediate right lane and pass or overtake in the second. Paragraphs (a) and (b) of that same traffic code prohibits driving more than 100 mph.
CVC 22406, Speed Laws, defines which commercial vehicles have a statewide 55 mph speed limit, and CVC 22406.1, Speed Laws, makes it a misdemeanor crime for those vehicle drivers limited to 55 mph to drive 15 or more mph over that speed.
CVC 22362, Speed Laws, outlines the limits of speeding in a construction zone.
Speeding Tickets Come in All Shapes & Sizes
What we are driving at here is that there is no one-size-fits-all defense for a speeding ticket. You should always consult a traffic ticket attorney about your speeding ticket to determine the best possible defense. Not every ticket is winnable, nor should every speeding ticket be challenged in court. Sometimes it is wiser to pay the fine and accept traffic school, but without consulting a traffic attorney, you will not know which you should dispute.
