How To Fight Speeding Tickets
When you get a traffic ticket, it doesn't seem very funny at the moment, but when you sit back and take a look at the things people will do to fight a traffic ticket, most of them seem downright dumb. And in all honesty, the best way to fight a traffic ticket is not to remember what to do, but remember what you shouldn't do!
Think about it - You're stuck in traffic and your patience is running thin. Trying to get around traffic, you pull onto the shoulder and pass traffic until a cop comes to pull you over. When the cop comes to your window, the excuses start to fly off of the handle. "Well officer, sounded like it was about to explode, so I figured I would drive on the shoulder until I could get off on the next exit".
He probably won't buy this one. This is one way NOT to beat a ticket!What about when you approach a stop sign, look around to see if anyone is there, and then blow completely through it? Sure enough, a cop is right around the corner and pulls you over. Then, you give the usual "I didn't see it" or "I came to a full stop". He probably won't buy these, either.
You see, these are prime examples of what you shouldn't do when you get pulled over for a traffic violation. If you want to know exactly what you should do, I know of an excellent resource that could have you beating nearly every traffic ticket that you ever get, all without the lame excuses!
A driver who has received a traffic ticket has several options available to them. If you feel you are innocent of the charges and have evidence to prove your case, you can go to court and plead not guilty and try to convince the judge of your innocence. However, feeling you are innocent and being able to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt are two different things. For most drivers, pleading guilty and paying the ticket is the sensible option but you still have options to prevent points being added to your driving record and an increase in insurance rates.
Remember, if you got your ticket in a county other than the one in which you live, you cannot pay your ticket at your county's Clerk of the Courts office. You must pay your fine in the county where you received your ticket and that county may have different time limits than those in your own county.
There are three options to pay for a Georgia Traffic Ticket:
Online - Most counties in Georgia have online payment as an option. You can visit the Florida DMV website to see if the county where you received your ticket offers that option and use a credit or debit card to pay your ticket online.
Mail - Your ticket should have all the information needed, including the address of the Clerk of the Court's office and the amount of the fine, to mail in your payment. If you choose to mail in your payment you should place a check mark in the "Guilty" box and include a check or money order (do not send cash) for the amount of the fine. Mail the ticket to the Clerk of the Court, in the county where you received your ticket, via "Certified Mail - Return Receipt." By using "certified mail- return receipt", you will fill out a card that will be attached to your envelope. When your payment is delivered to the Clerk of the Court's office, someone there will have to sign the receipt for the mail and that receipt will be returned to you showing the date it was delivered and the signature of the clerk's office employee who accepted the mail. That will be your proof that your payment was received at the clerk's office.
In Person - You can go to the Clerk of the Courts office in the county where you received your ticket and pay the fine in person. Your county Clerk's office may have satellite offices that are closer to you. For more information, call the county Clerk's office using the phone number provided on your ticket.
Depending on the county where you received your ticket, you have from sixty to ninety days to attend a traffic school. You will still have to pay your ticket but, if you are eligible, electing to attend a traffic school provides you with three benefits: No points are added to your driving record. Your insurance company is not allowed to increase your rates (unless you were at fault in a collision and your insurance company had to pay damages as a result). You can keep your "Safe Driver" status meaning your license is good for eight years vs. every six years for those without the safe driver status. In Georgia, you can only attend traffic school once a year and five times within a 10-year period.
