How to Prepare For Speeding Ticket Court and Gain Knowledge Than Can Help You Win
If you choose to take your speeding ticket to court and have no prior preparation the likelihood of winning is extremely low. The officer and judge have been through this process many times and you as a complete amateur unprepared are going to lose.
But what can you do to prepare for speeding ticket court?
First of all, you have to understand the violation that you are being accused of. A speeding violation in one jurisdiction is going to be different than one in another area so you have to actively research your specific violation in your specific area.
This will help you cause you can figure out what things are needed to prove you as guilty of the offense which can help you build your case. There is no sense in building a defense that proves something besides that you didn’t violate some of the specific points of the charge given.
Another good tip is to go to the courtroom before the trial date to get an idea of how the court process is going to work. You can see what procedures are done and in what order. You will know when you have the opportunity to speak and when you shouldn’t. You will also get an idea for what types of statements tend to make the judge uncomfortable or angry.
Yes, the judge should remain unbiased but they are still a human being who is prone to get frustrated or angry at certain behaviors, attitudes, or statements. Note these types of things when you watch the court process so you can avoid doing these things to the judge.
The point here is that you will gain credibility with the judge if you know what is going on and how the process works while you will lose credibility if you are naive or clueless which can frustrate even the most patient of judges. The only way you are really going to win is if you have some form of credibility to back up your arguments.
