Speeding tickets often come with harsh penalties and lasting consequences. A ticket can leave you struggling to get by. Pleading not guilty to a New York speeding ticket may be your best chance to avoid those fines.
But how do you get a ticket dismissed? With the Law Office of James Medows, you can get the guidance you need to fight your speeding ticket, giving you an opportunity to avoid points on your license and fines.
One of the keys to getting a speeding ticket dismissed is to act quickly. Don’t pay it immediately—this is much like admitting guilt, and you’ll have those points put on your license regardless. However, you shouldn’t ignore the ticket either. If the deadline passes, you’ll be charged anyway.
Keep in mind that you only have fifteen days to make your move and begin contesting your ticket. When you’re ready, act fast to send your appeal to the Traffic Violations Bureau or the correct court. The ticket will specify which is right for your case, and a qualified lawyer can help you determine the best way forward.
When you’ve gotten a speeding ticket, you may not have even seen an officer. A speed camera can snap photos of your car and license plate, and from there, an officer will verify the ticket and send it on. Many people assume that, because it’s a camera, you can’t fight it, and they pay the fine.
Don’t fall into this line of thinking. A speed camera and the person analyzing the photo can err, and your ticket may be dismissed because of these mistakes. As sensitive as these machines are, they need to be checked regularly, and if this hasn’t been done, it could mean a dismissal.
You can also dispute an officer’s claim. After all, humans make mistakes, too, and if the officer has done so with your ticket, we’ll find out. We’re familiar with many winning speeding ticket defense strategies, so we know exactly what your case needs when you’ve received a speeding ticket.
