Tips on How to Get Out of a Speeding Ticket

From the first moment you get pulled over by an officer begins your speeding ticket defense. These tips on how to get out of a speeding ticket should be followed if you want to best beat a speeding ticket.

Normally when pulled over the first question asked to you is, “Do you know why I pulled you over?” Regardless if you know why or not, you don’t have to answer this question as you would be incriminating yourself. Just say no and let the cop explain.

After giving the cop the proper paperwork such as your license, registration, and proof of insurance as required, you have to be careful. If the officer starts walking back to the police car this is where they normally make the decision to give you a ticket or not. It’s advisable to ask for a break at this point in time.

If you do get a ticket, it’s best to plead not guilty and go to court. When you go to court you normally get to pick a time when you want your court time. What you want to do is pick a time that’s almost a completely different time of day than when you were pulled over. If you got pulled over at 9 in the evening, pick the earlier court time possible. This is because the officer most likely isn’t working that early of shift. It’s not true that the officer has to show up to be found guilty, but it can help you if the officer is a no show.

For whatever infraction you are charged with it’s important that you come up with a viable defense. Tactics and strategy works well, but a solid argument in court will go a long way for you. You need to look into your local laws and the local definition of the charge against you to find ways of defending yourself.
