You cannot fight a speeding ticket if you pay the citation. You will pay the maximum fine, and delivering the key means you plead guilty.
This does not mean you are not responsible for a fine; it just means you have some time to consult an experienced traffic attorney.
You do not want traffic violations building on your record. After the first offense, repeat offenses can drastically impact your history. Our legal team can delay your proceedings to make a case and gather evidence or witnesses.
What are the Consequences of a Speeding Ticket?
In some cases, speeding tickets result in fines, points on your record, and license suspension. With excessive speeding, judges sometimes consider jail time as a penalty.
Your speed will determine your fine and penalties, which might include:
From one mph to 10 mph, you could face a fine of $150
From 11 mph to 30 mph over the speed limit, you could face a $300 fine
More than 32 mph over the speed limit, you could face a fine of $600
In addition to speeding ticket fines, the state also adds surcharges. With penalties and higher insurance premiums, it’s wise to consider investing in an attorney to help you reduce or lessen your charges.
