Fight Your Traffic Ticket
It happen to the best of us. If you have been pulled over for speeding or if you have received a speeding ticket through the mail, then you may think it’s best to just suck it up, pay the fine and move on. However, by paying the ticket you are admitting defeat and guilt. It is possible to challenge the charge and walk away without having to pay the fine and without damage to your driving record.
There are some instances when a speeding or traffic ticket can mean you will also lose your license.
However, you may not realize this until you have paid the ticket and receive a license revocation letter in the mail.
By then, it’s usually too late. Before you pay the ticket, contact a defense lawyer to discuss your options. You have 10 days to challenge the fine and possibly walk away without any complications and issues to your driver’s license.

Speeding Ticket Consequences
If you do receive a speeding ticket, you could be looking at:
- A fine of anywhere from $25.00 to $500.00 for a first time offense. How much you pay will depend on how fast above the speed limit you were going.
- A loss of license for six months to one year if you are under the age of 21 and if you are 24 miles per hour over the speed limit
- A loss of license for 30 days to one year if you have lost 15 points or more off your driving record in a twenty four month period. How many points you will lose for a traffic offense or speeding ticket will depend on how fast you were going as well as other factors. Most speeding tickets will result in a three point loss.
