Think You Can’t Fight A Speeding Ticket? Think Again.
Many people believe that a speeding ticket is nearly impossible to fight and win. With accurate speed tracking technology, most people believe that successfully overcoming one of these charges is next to impossible, so they simply give up, plead guilty and live with the steep associated penalties.
When you contact Thompson Law, you’ll work with an attorney who is highly familiar with Pennsylvania road and traffic laws, and can put them to work for you. Attorney William D. Thompson knows how trying a speeding ticket can be; you may not have the money to afford the fine and increase in your insurance premiums. He strives to prevent clients from being burdened by a simple mistake, and he fights their charges to help them maintain their innocence in court. It is this dedication to his clients that has earned attorney William Thompson the recognition as one of the 10 Best for Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys as well as a spot on the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by The National Trial Lawyers in 2014 and 2015.
How Speeding Tickets Will Impact Your License
If you are convicted of speeding, you could receive the following license points on your driving record:
- 1-5 mph over: 0 Points
- 6-10 mph over: 2 points
- 11-15 mph over: 3 points
- 16-25 mph over: 4 points
- 26-30 mph over: 5 points
- 31+ mph over: 5 points plus an automatic 15-day license suspension
These points can add up quickly, leading you consequences such as the loss of your license.
As mentioned previously, speeding carries several penalties that can have a major impact on your life, particularly if you do not have a lot of money to spare. Attorney Thompson recognizes that speeding citations are a way that police officers generate revenue for their communities, and as a result, many of them will stretch their jurisdiction or forego some of the regulations required to properly charge someone with their crime. An attorney can help you determine this for your case. Speeding fines in Pennsylvania can be steep, ranging between $45 and $100 for a single ticket.
