Does it pay to fight a speeding ticket

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in My Kind of Driving

Many dismissals occur because a police officer cannot attend the hearing, but attorneys say that’s happening less often as police agencies encourage officers to attend court. Attorneys are trained to look for police mistakes in procedures and paperwork, but the majority of the ticketed, whether they represent themselves or not, will wind up paying something. Their best hope is to get the severity reduced, though they run the risk that with court costs the total could exceed the original ticket.

It is important to note that the Florida Legislature regulates court fees and not local officials. The Court fees have not been adjusted since 2008. The list includes Traffic Court Information such as Speeding Ticket fines. If you are always in a hurry and get a lot of speeding tickets, it will cost you a lot more for speeding. Driving 20 miles over the Speed Limit will cost you at least $231 and driving 30 miles over the Speed Limit will cost you $331. Ouch… That is a $100 difference between 10 miles. Be wise and don’t Speed.

However… If you are ticketed and need point reduction, we offer a Florida approved traffic school online at www.FloridaWheelsinMotion.com.

Clearly the system is set up for dismissing a ticket not so much for insurance discount. I had to call customer service and have them walk me through the process.
