A speeding ticket can carry consequences such as points on your driver's license and substantially increased insurance rates. If you accrue as little as 12 points, you could have your license suspended and face other penalties. Many people don't realize that the payment of a speeding ticket is an automatic admission of guilt, which immediately registers the offense on your driving record. That is why it is important that you contact a Tampa traffic offenses lawyer if you have been given a speeding ticket, as they will be able to help you fight the validity of the ticket in court.
There are many variables in the judgment of a driver's speed by a law enforcement officer that could lead to mistakes or errors being made. The officer's radar gun could be malfunctioning, registering a higher speed than the vehicle is actually traveling, or the officer could make a misjudgment in how fast you were going if he is making a visual determination of your speed. An experienced attorney will be able to expose any such mistakes, and may be able to get the charge against you lessened, or your ticket eliminated.
If you receive a ticket for a speeding offense, the consequences could be much steeper than you originally anticipated. You could face increased insurance rates, loss of your driving privileges, or even trouble at your job if your employer has accessed your driving record. A criminal defense attorney may be able to help you avoid these consequences, by challenging the law enforcement officer who gave you the ticket to prove that you were speeding beyond a reasonable doubt. They may also help you avoid accruing points on your driving record by requesting that you participate in traffic school.
