How to Get Out of a Speeding Ticket

Even the best drivers can get a speeding ticket. Sometimes our minds wander a bit or we’re just in a hurry. But what should you do about it?

Hire a lawyer to get out of a speeding ticket

The best way to maximize your chances in court with your ticket is to hire a lawyer. It can be very cost effective and help you have the best chance for success in fighting the ticket.

When you hire a traffic lawyer like me, you’ll have someone on your side who knows the ins and outs of the case. You’ll be working with someone who regularly defends drivers just like you.

Also, when you hire a lawyer to help with your speeding ticket, he’ll know what possibilities you may be facing. I know what options we have in court – what’s hopeful and what isn’t likely. Without that experience on your side, you may just be shooting in the dark.

Most importantly when you’re talking with a lawyer, you want to make sure that they have relationships with the local players involved. Hiring someone who’s more than 30 minutes away may not give you the best chance for success. Many successful speeding ticket outcomes are based more on the negotiation phase with the officer and the judge, so having those relationships in place is critical.

Can a book get you out of a speeding ticket?

I have a great free book about reckless driving in Virginia; it’s the highest-rated reckless driving book on Amazon. But I think that relying solely on books you find online isn’t going to get you far.

The problem with books is that they aren’t tailored for your unique situation. Most of the ones available online today are written generically, so they aren’t even focused on Virginia law. My reckless driving defense book provides a solid overview for Virginia reckless driving cases, but it won’t be much help for someone who’s charged with reckless driving in another state.

Instead of relying on free online information, you should contact me for a free consultation. I provide free consultations for anyone charged with a traffic or misdemeanor offense in the greater Fredericksburg area (Stafford, Spotsylvania, King George, Caroline, etc). Getting a free consult only takes a few minutes of your time, and it’s well worth the investment.
