    So i got a speeding ticket today...

    Discussion started by Some1 - Aug 2, 2005

    So i get a ticket cause i was tired coming home from work this afternoon not paying attention to how fast i was going and i see a cop wave me down and i go what the fuck look down i am going over 55 in a 30... he comes up and goes man you were flying do you know how fast you were going i say sir i wasnt even paying attention i just pulled out of work i am so sorry blah blah blah...
    he says he clocked me at 59 and 57...

    anyways to my question

    he says that if i pay the ticket he has heard "that i wont get points on my license" but if i fight it ill most likely get it reduced.

    is there any truth to this not getting points on my license i am getting mixed answers and i dont know who to believe...

    201$ wont be paid if i still get ponts on my license i need an answer...

    from the king of speeding tickets most in excess of 100mph go to court. see what the judge tells you. you can contest it and loose or plead guilty and request traffic school. if you pay the citation you WILL get points. the only way to avoid that is if the judge is super cool and considers u have no priors or if you do driving school. bottom line is you are paying for both the citation and the school. or just the citation and points...your choice. i have 2 pending right now one for 105 in a 70 zone

    Do not pay that shit. you are going to get points.
    Go to court and ask if you can get the ticket reduced... all they care about is getting money so be ready to pay either way.

    if you contest it, the officer who gave u the ticket has to show up to the court. there is a chance that the officer won't find it worthy of his time to go to court and bring proof (the actual reading on the speed gun he used) to prove that you were indeed speeding. or he can just come and prove you wrong, and you'll still get a ticket. there are a lot of things in which radar guns are faulty (as in sinusoidal waves which the radar gun produces are only accurate to some measure distance away, in accordance to the weather, etc).

    my friend actually has gotten all of his tickets dropped by writing in a essay contesting the ticket, and actually winning. i don't know how that works exactly, but it's worth looking into.

    if i were you, i'd pay the ticket, and go to traffic school and hope for the next 18 months you don't get pulled over again.

    fight the ticket..it may take two court dates and the amount of the ticket but you will not get points..first court date bring couple extra bucks incase you dont win to set up an appeal..second date tell them you wanna plea and just not get the points
