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

  • My ex financee and i own a truck together, which i coborrowed

    My ex financee and i own a truck together, which i coborrowed to save her job. when we split she took the truck, i sent her several emails asking her to refinance and get the truck out of my name and she wouldn't owe me anything. She refused to answer most of them but finally answered and said "she promised she would refinance". she then used those emails to try and file harrassment charges against me. i then had a civil lawyer send her 2 letters which she did not respond to after a total of 13 months i finally took the truck, she had let the insurance lapse for several months, speeding ticket and 2 wrecks. She owns nothing, i own my a home and felt i was the one at risk since my name is ***** ***** loan and title. a couple of days after i took the truck she got her mother to cosign and bought another truck, and had her attorney contact me to give her the $1000 down payment she put on the truck. i don't want the truck, and can't afford it, and it is damaged due to her wrecks. At this point i want to turn the license plate in and have the finance company repo the truck and we can both be responsible for anything owed after that. Since the truck is in storage but in my possession what are my rights?
