A speeding ticket is not a major crime, but it is not wise to simply ignore it. And while the fine of a simple speeding ticket is not a huge amount, it may not be a good idea to simply pay it, either.
Every speeding ticket or moving violation counts as points against your license. If you have numerous prior traffic citations, this could be the one that pushes you into license suspension. That is an expensive and lengthy bureaucratic hassle that is best avoided. Speeding tickets may also lead to a large increase in your auto insurance premiums.
Bentley, Kopecki, Smith, P.C., handles traffic tickets in Berks County and Lebanon County, including out-of-state drivers cited while driving through southeast Pennsylvania. Our attorneys can determine in a free phone consultation if it is worth your while to hire us to fight your ticket or negotiate on your behalf.
Before You Plead No Contest To A Pennsylvania Speeding Ticket …
Paying a speeding ticket is an admission of guilt. If you are on the verge of suspension because of an accumulation of points, or if you are concerned about your insurance rates, our lawyers can advocate for you in court. Sometimes police officers or prosecutors will work with us to downgrade a speeding ticket to a nonmoving violation with no points or a lesser moving violation with fewer points. We have also successfully challenged the ticket itself on the basis of an improper traffic stop and other defenses when clients need the entire matter to go away, such as a truck driver whose livelihood depends upon a clean driving record.
