Speeding Ticket Questions

Speeding tickets are citations that a person receives for driving above the speed limit. Often times a person can avoid a speeding ticket and be issued a warning. However with the increase in motor accidents, Police departments across the nation have began to crack down on speeding. To learn more about speeding ticket, take a look at the questions below that have been answered by Experts.

I have a speeding ticket in GA. for driving 63mph in a 40 mph zone. What will happen to my driving record and insurance? Should I have a lawyer?

If the officer gave you a speeding ticket for driving 23 mph over the speed limit, you can expect to have 3 points added to your driving record. As far as you insurance, you will have to check with your agent. Each insurance company has its own assessment of dealing with this type of fine. Usually, you will see how the points against your record affect insurance when you change companies or go to renew your current policy.

When people hire an attorney to fight a speeding ticket, they realize very fast that the attorney will cost them more than the actual ticket. If the officer who gave you the ticket doesn't show at court, you could ask for the ticket to be dismissed. Without the officer there to verify that you were speeding, the ticket will be dismissed; however most officers are always at court.

In some situations, the judge will reduce the point number if you plead guilty. If you choose to take this option, you will need to speak with someone at the DA's office. You will know from that visit whether or not the DA is willing to work with you. If not, you can plead not guilty and request a court trial.

Am I obligated to disclose the name of the driver if I receive a camera speeding ticket in Arizona? I live in California.

According to Arizona law, if a person is speeding, the officer must give you the ticket in person. In this situation, you should wait for a process server to serve you in person. The chances of this happening are slim. However, Scottsdale Arizona now hires process services to serve out of state drivers with driving violations. So, if you haven't answered the letter from Arizona, don't respond. In the event that you do get served, you can send a copy of your driver's license to the court and explain that you were not driving at the time of the photo and you would like for the court to dismiss the ticket. There doesn't appear to be any place in the Arizona Transportation Code provisions that states you would be obligated to name the person who was driving in regards to a speeding ticket.

I received an automated photo speeding ticket in Illinois. Are they basing identification on the windshield photo of me or all three photos (one is of the plates, the other of the car, and the third of the windshield)?

In most situations like this, the vehicle is being target of interest in the photos, mainly the license plates. The goal of the photo tickets is to fine the owner of the vehicle for the traffic violation. Many of these photo speeding tickets have been challenged in court. You could always ask that this situation be taken to court for a jury trial. By doing this, you would be able to find out more during the discovery process.

If you want to fight the speeding ticket, you may be able to convince some jury members to believe your rendition of the event. The photo ticketing system doesn't have a large fan base within the public. If you can provide some type of evidence that you shouldn't receive the ticket, you may win your case through sympathetic jury members.

I have California driving License and got speeding ticket twice in New York state.(one in Sep.16, 72mph in 55 zone and one in Oct.31, 80mph in65 zone. Is my driving license going to be suspended?

Both tickets will be forwarded to California and they will be as if you were ticketed in California. The two tickets won't cause your license to be suspended but your insurance premiums will skyrocket. In an attempt to avoid the tickets going on your driving record, you may want to contest them. It may be a possibility to have the points reduced or have the tickets dismissed.

If I have a NC speeding ticket for 20 mph over the limit, would having a lawyer help reduce the ticket or just eliminate the need for me to appear in court? No prior tickets.

If you have no prior tickets or points on your driving record, you shouldn't need an attorney. However, if you cannot make the court date for some reason, then you would need the assistance of an attorney. The fact that you have no prior traffic violations or points means that you may be able to speak with the prosecutor and have the ticket lessened with fewer or no points added to your driving record.

Speeding tickets can reap havoc on a person's driving record and cause an increase to insurance premiums. If you are dealing with speeding tickets or have a question regarding a speeding ticket, you should ask an Expert for insightful answers.

Recent Speeding Ticket Questions

  • In 2004 I flew to Arizona, rented a car. I waived the rental

    In 2004 I flew to Arizona, rented a car. I waived the rental company's insurance because my Minnesota insurance covers rentals for liability, both property and bodily. Hurrying back to the airport, I was stopped for speeding and the cop asked to see proof of insurance. I showed him my insurance card and he said this insurance is not for this car --duh I had showed him my rental car agreement. Despite my proof, he issued a driving without insurance ticket (not a speeding ticket, which I was). Turns out driving without insurance was a much more costly offense.
    When I got back to Mn I got a letter from my insurance company explaining I was covered and sent to the court judge in Phoenix. I never received a response. It was sent to a collection agency and I never paid it. it is $790.
    I am going to Arizona in a few weeks and although I plan to have my boyfriend rent the car and drive I would like to get this cleared up just in case.
    I asked my insurance company for a letter and the underwriter provided a letter stating I've had continuous coverage since 1974 (including feb of 2004).
    I plan to fax this to the court judge in phoenix.
    Do you have any suggestions for a cover letter. What are my chances to getting this old ticket removed?
  • Dear JA: I have a question about state residency. I currently

    Dear JA:
    I have a question about state residency. I currently hold driver license in both the state of North Carolina(NC) and Florida (FL). I read on the internet that I can have only one driver license after the fact that I already have two. The following facts concerning my residency:
    1. I still own two properties in NC and none in FL. My car is still registered in NC. I do not own anything in FL.
    2. During this year, I have been traveling back and forth between the two states working in both states. I really have no idea how long I have been in each state... If I do not know myself, I do not think anyone would.
    3. During the past election (two weeks ago), I voted in FL because that was where I was at the moment.
    4. I had my FL license since May 2014. I had my NC license since 2005.
    5. I have not done anything with my FL license except for vote, get my library card, and my fishing license (all of which I have in North Carolina).
    6. I did not get any parking or speeding ticket during these months since I got my FL licdnse. I did not get into any trouble at all , i.e. clean record... I did not break any law.
    7. I got my divorce in NC 6/27/14.
    8. I got a speeding ticket around March 2014 with my NC license.
    So... I made a mistake in getting a FL license because I still want to be a North Carolina resident. My questions are below:
    1. If I turn in my FL license today in FL, would I still be a North Carolina resident and not be confused about my residency? Acting as if I was just visiting FL and my FL license as just an ID. The FL DMV never ask me if I want an ID or a driver license.
    Or
    2. If I turn in my FL license in NC and got reissue another NC driver license, would I still be considered a NC resident for over 10 years since all I really did was stay in FL for a couple of months and got confused with my driver license.

    Never notified of court day, nor fines, nor anything until I got my notice of indefinite suspension over failure to pay one speeding ticket. It says violated of 441-323, but I was not in any special area.
