The more you know about the speeding ticket process, the better prepared you will be for the speeding ticket experience. Here is some basic information about the court
It is always a good policy to come to court prepared. Having the court notice in court is advisable. It will help the court ascertain the most important information about your case quickly.
Be sure to dress neatly and respectfully. Many judges frown upon litigants who are wearing informal clothing such as shorts, or open toed sandals.
Security: It is advised that all litigants turn off all electronic devices prior to entering the court. All litigants are also required to walk through a magnetometer for security purposes. If you have any weapons or sharp objects please do not bring them into the court.
Sign-in: even though you may have met with the officer in court and discussed your matter, it is important to check-in with the court clerk in the front of the courtroom. Failure to advise the clerk that you are in court may result in your case not being called.Points and Fines
The amount of points a driver faces with a speeding ticket varies with respect to the mph over the speed limit they were alleged with. The following chart gives a brief overlook:
01 to 10 mph over the limit
11 to 20
21 to 30
31 to 40
More than 40
In terms of quantifiable dollars and cents, the average conviction to a 76/55 mph zone will usually face a fine up to about $400.00, a $300.00 fine payable to DMV, and a few hundred dollars in insurance increases.About Our Firm
