Speeding tickets are tricky, annoying and terribly common. Here are 4 tips on how to avoid them from the lawyers for speeding tickets at The Lowry Law Firm. Happy driving!
- Be Aware of Your Surroundings: If you are driving along the highway and notice traffic suddenly starts to slow, slow down as well. It is often that a driver up ahead has spotted a patrol car that you’re not aware of yet.
- Be Prepared: Tickets can come from a variety of sources including live-patrolmen, video or camera radars planted on light corners and traffic lights, signs that indicate video or aerial speeding surveillance and more. If you notice any of these, slow down to avoid a ticket. Sometimes cops can have vans sitting on roadsides with cameras, and you won’t see it until it’s too late.
- Flashy vs. Dull: It’s a given that a red or yellow sports car will grab more attention than a minivan or rusted sedan. Be conscious of the color and make of your car and be aware that going even five miles over in a flashy red Camaro could get you a ticket versus going five over in a black sedan.
- Know the Law: Know the law and legal speed limits for the areas you are driving in, so that if you get a ticket, you can dispute it in court if what you have learned differs from what the ticket or highway patrolman says.
If you do get a speeding ticket, hire good lawyers for speeding tickets that have proven experience in handling traffic tickets. Chances are, the Jefferson County lawyers are more aware of Jefferson County laws than you are and can effectively minimize the damage on your record and wallet.
