HelloThis is Samuel and I will provide you information in this regard.1 - If you were going anything over the speed limit, regardless of the other traffic that is just cause to give a speeding ticket. The fact that officers grant a little latitude is of no consequence.2 If you cannot make the current court date, you need to contact the clerk of the court and request a new date. That should be in writing and you can call and get a fax number to fax your written request. However, do not Assume it has been granted. Follow up again with a phone call to the clerk once it has been faxed and see if the court will grant your continuance.
You will want to write a letter stating that you have a court date on whatever date and you cannot make that date and request the Honorable Court to assign another date. You will need to state why you cannot make the current court date.
You can call the clerk of the court, but they will tell you to put your request for continuance in writing.
Please let me know here, if you have other questions. Otherwise I would appreciate a positive rating as that is how I get credit for my time and information.
