Reasons for Ticket Dismissal 

All speeding tickets will stay on your record anywhere from 3 to 10 years, depending on the circumstances. This will also affect your insurance rates. Thankfully, there are several ways that a judge may throw out the traffic ticket. For this to happen, you will need to dispute the ticket and show up to court. If the officer who gave you the ticket fails to show up to the proceedings, this will work in your favor. In this situation, the judge may drop the charges against you. If you can show that you were speeding to avoid a collision with a car or object, your ticket may get reduced or dismissed. Other possible situations may be if the officer writes down the wrong information about you or your car. The use of broken equipment may also work in your favor.

Reasons For Fine Reductions

After you are pulled over by an officer, and you are cited for speeding, you should ask, “How do you get your speeding ticket reduced?” It may be worth it to challenge the ticket and request a reduction in the fine. the judge will look at your driving record. If you have very few or no previous violations, there is a good chance the judge could reduce the fines for your ticket. The judge may also consider similar factors to a ticket-dismissal situation.

Is it worth fighting a speeding ticket? Moving citations can hit you heavy in the pocketbook. By researching the possibilities and going to court, you could save yourself a big chunk of change.

Understand Your Rights

Do all speeding tickets go on your record? Not necessarily and they don't have to, but only if you contest the ticket in court. Speeding tickets typically result in one or two points on your record. This might not seem like much, but points from minor infractions stay on your record for 39 months. If you get too many tickets then your driver’s license may be suspended. 

If you receive 3 convictions for moving violations in 12 months, this will result in suspension. The suspension is mandatory, not discretionary. In fact, it is applied by a computer program, not a person working for the Secretary of State. The program counts convictions on your driver’s record (called a driver’s abstract), and if you have three in one year, your license is suspended. It is important to note that it is 3 convictions that will suspend you from driving. Not simply three tickets.

Fight for your privilege to drive

Fighting a speeding ticket requires you or your traffic lawyer to craft a defense of your defense. Evidence such as the police officer’s notes, witness affidavits and video footage might be gathered to determine the context of your situation. If your case goes to trial, the police officer who issued you the ticket will have to appear at trial or make a statement in writing. There is a possibility that a police officer won’t respond to a court request, however, which may lead to your case getting dropped.
