Comments Off on Important Factors when Looking Forward to Fighting a Speeding Ticket

Driving within the rules and regulations should be observed as a habit rather than for the fear of law. It would be pertinent to mention here that it is your moral duty to observe the laws of the land on and off the road. You should be rest assured that you would be given the speeding ticket lest you fail to drive within the driving limits.

Are you pulled over for speeding? Your initial reaction would be to get out and give the officer a piece of your mind. Is he or she unaware that you may not be able to afford the ticket? However, you should stop instantly. In case, you want a successful defence for speeding ticket, you should back up and start over or you should start writing the check for paying the fine. In case, you wonder how to fight a speeding ticket, read on.

 

Best defence is good offence

It would be pertinent to mention here that tickets may not possibly be what you may have heard about. Therefore, your best defence would be good offence. You should begin by remembering that it is not personal unless you owe the police officer some money and you believe, he or she is taking it out on you. Therefore, you should remain calm at all times. You should remember not to admit anything. You should not be confused, as you should not be denying it either. It would be in your best interest to go with the flow.

What questions would the office ask?

The officer would ask you something similar to the following questions.

  • Do you know why you are being stopped?
  • Do you know how fast you were driving?

It would be pertinent to mention here that you should provide negative response to these questions. You should let the office tell you about it. Anything you say implying about your knowledge of the act would be taken against you. It would prove your guilt. You should let them write the ticket and sign it.

A big misconception with the people would be that signing the ticket would be equivalent to admitting the guilt. That is simply a myth. You would simply be admitting to the fact that you were being given a ticket.

What should you do?

You should take note of the road, conditions, time and more. You should try to remember these facts to help you distinguish from the moment. You should write it down to remember, but only after the officer has left. The more information you collect would help you prepare your defence in the best manner possible.
