Getting a speeding ticket on San Antonio roadways is frustrating. Knowing you will have to take time off from work to fight the ticket is also frustrating, and you know it will cost you money and time. However, failing to defend against a speeding ticket in San Antonio could cost more than taking a day off work. An experienced speeding ticket lawyer can fight to keep the ticket off of your driving record.
There are hard costs and soft costs associated with a San Antonio speeding ticket. First, you could face a fine of hundreds of dollars. You should also be aware if you simply pay the fine, you will be pleading guilty which means you will also have a class C misdemeanor conviction on your driving record. This could have a serious impact on your insurance costs and could eventually affect your ability to keep your license. This is because a conviction for speeding will result in two points being added to your driving record. When you accrue enough points, Texas DPS will add surcharges onto your license.
This is why it is imperative to contact a San Antonio attorney with experience dealing with speeding tickets.
Many people are unaware that paying a traffic ticket fine without fighting it in court is an automatic guilty plea. This is why it is never recommended you pay a citation without fighting the charge you are facing. Remember, pleading guilty means a criminal record, fines, and a ding on your driving record for as long as the citation remains on your record.
When we handle speeding tickets for our clients, we negotiate the penalty with the judge or prosecutor. In most cases, we can fight the charge without you ever having to appear in court. Should the matter ultimately wind up in court, an attorney will be there to defend you against speeding charges.
One of the reasons many drivers fail to fight back against speeding tickets if they feel there is no valid defense. However, this is not true. Here are some of the possible defenses against a ticket:
Wrong vehicle cited – unless a law enforcement officer has a photo of your vehicle with the license plate, it is possible they have identified the wrong driver to cite for speeding. This is a possible defense against a speeding ticket.
Defective equipment used — radar guns are not always accurate. You could be facing a citation for going five miles over the speed limit simply because the radar gun was calibrated inaccurately, was defective, or because it was being used incorrectly.
Safety or emergency — in emergency situations, such as you are taking someone to the hospital, your children are home and facing an emergency, etc. you may be able to fight the ticket for emergency reasons. Another possible defense is your own safety — if a driver in your lane is driving erratically, you may have to speed up to get out of their way.
One of the concerns many drivers have is the cost of hiring a lawyer. After all, if you hire an attorney and you still get convicted the added expense is challenging. This is why you should contact the Law Office of Eric Ramos PLLC because if we cannot challenge your ticket and help you avoid a conviction, we will refund your fee. Contact us immediately if you receive a speeding citation — even if you have missed your court date and may have an outstanding warrant, we may be able to help.
