25 May How to Fight a Speeding Ticket in Brooklyn
If police ticket you for speeding, you could be facing a whole host of problems. Your insurance rates could go up, you could have to go to traffic school, and you could even lose your driver’s license. If you think you have a case against the ticket, it might be a good idea to work with an attorney who understands the Brooklyn court system.
Your lawyer will begin to develop a strategy to represent you in court if you decide you want to fight the ticket.
What Defenses Are Available for Speeding in Brooklyn?
Your lawyer’s defense will depend on an in-depth interview with you. Were you actually speeding? Was there a valid reason you were speeding?
In some cases, it’s possible to beat a ticket based on evidence of an emergency, traffic conditions or road conditions.
If you are reasonably certain that the speed indicated on your ticket is incorrect, your attorney will try to determine what could have caused the discrepancy.
How did police clock your speed? The officer’s radar gun may have picked up on another vehicle or a nearby object. Radar guns can malfunction in several ways, too, including through interference, multi-path beam cancellation and even when it’s used at an awkward angle.
Some police departments don’t train their officers properly, which can result in serious user error while clocking speeds.
Evidence is Admissible When Fighting a Speeding Ticket
A traffic case is no different from any other type of court case in that you’re allowed to present evidence that could change the outcome of your case. If you have a copy of your ticket, maintenance records for your vehicle, or anything else that might help your attorney, hand it over – it could mean the difference between points (and an eventual license suspension) and walking away with lowered fines and points.
