How To Beat a Speeding Ticket

How to Beat a Speeding Ticket in CA

Traffic Ticket Lawyer in Oakland

Speeding tickets are a frustrating experience that people often desire to resolve as soon as possible. However, by immediately paying your fine, you are saying that you are guilty of your traffic violation. Before you give up on your speeding ticket case, you should be aware of your chances of beating it and avoiding the resulting consequences. It is possible to defeat your traffic citation; however, almost no one does so without the help of an experienced lawyer. When you work with an attorney, you give yourself the best chance of overcoming.

At the Law Office of Nabiel C. Ahmed, we understand that every case deserves the attention of an experienced lawyer. We understand how important your driving privileges are, and that any points against your license can quickly rack up into skyrocketing insurance costs, serious fines, and even driver's license suspension.

Fighting Back Against the Penalties for a Speeding Ticket

If you have prior traffic violations on your record, a speeding ticket could push you over the edge and cause you to lose your license. Even if you do not have that many points against your driver's license, a $35 fine for speeding can suddenly balloon into a $298 fine due to penalty assessments and other fees involved.

To evade the consequences of a speeding ticket, here is what you can do:

  • Enter a plea of not guilty
  • Ask for continuances and reschedule hearings
  • Ask for papers, information, data, etc.

Importantly, if you do not plead guilty, officials are forced to personally work on your case. With a not guilty plea, someone now has to establish that beyond a reasonable doubt you committed a traffic violation. Once this process begins, time is on your side if used properly. If the officer who gave you the citation does not appear at your hearing, your case could get dismissed. Often, the busy schedules law enforcement officials do not always allow for them to appear in court. If the law enforcement official does appear in court, they may have forgotten some events, making your case stronger.
