What you should know about contesting a traffic ticket:

Getting a speeding ticket can be a headache for anyone, especially if you don’t really understand what your options are. First of all, simple traffic tickets are civil http://cialisfrance24.com in nature; you cannot go to jail for receiving a traffic ticket. In fact, many people just pay their ticket without question just to avoid the inconveniences the ticket can cause. This can impact a driver's automobile insurance rates.  Others choose not to pay their ticket, decide they will deal with their ticket “tomorrow”, or are so busy that they forget about their ticket entirely. An unanswered traffic ticket can result in a court finding you to have committed the infraction, even if you are innocent of the violation. If you fail to pay your traffic ticket’s fine or fail to respond to your ticket, then your driver’s license will be suspendedand you will owe other fees and interest in addition to the original ticket’s fine. It’s also likely for your insurance premiums to increase once the violation is reported to the Department of Licensing. So what should you do?

Regardless of your choice, you have 15 days from the date of your infraction to respond to your ticket. Once you receive your ticket, you initially have three options: you can choose to pay the ticket right away, request a mitigation hearing (which is still admitting your guilt), or you can contest traffic ticket (plead not guilty). It’s important to know what your responsibilities are for each option so you can make the most informed and suitable decision.

If you pay your ticket, you avoid the inconvenience of appearing in court but you admit to have committed the infraction. Obviously, it also costs you the ticket’s fine. The infraction information will be reported to the Department of Licensing and could impact your automobile insurance rates. In addition, having an excess of traffic infractions on your record within a certain period of time can result in your driver’s license being suspended.

If you request a mitigation hearing, then you are admitting to have committed the traffic infraction, but would like the opportunity to explain the circumstances to the judge. You will be given a court date and will need to take time out of your day to appear in court. You may not argue that you did not commit the infraction and the ticket will not be dismissed as you have already admitted your guilt. After hearing your explanation, the judge may or may not reduce the ticket’s fine. The infraction will be reported to the Department of Licensing where it will appear on your driving record, possibly increasing your insurance premiums.

If you do not believe you committed the infraction, or you wish to contest the ticket, then you would request a contested hearing. Similar to a mitigation hearing, you will be given a court date and will need to take time out of your day to appear in court.  You also have the option of paying a private attorney to appear for you in court as well.  The judge will read the officer’s sworn statement and then you may testify and present witnesses and evidence for your behalf. The judge will then decide whether or not the infraction was committed based upon the preponderance of evidence. The judge may or may not decide to dismiss the case or reduce the ticket’s fine. If your case is not dismissed, you will have to pay the fine, the fee for your attorney if you hired one, and the infraction will be reported to the Department of Licensing where it will appear on your driving record, possibly increasing your insurance premiums.

Another alternative that many people are unaware of and often is not explained on the ticket is requesting a decision by written statement. This is where eTicketbuster comes in. Similar to requesting a contested hearing, requesting a decision by written statement challenges the ticket. To contest traffic ticket in this method will not require you to take time out of your day to appear in court. This statement is specifically comprised of the facts and circumstances surrounding how you received your traffic ticket, in addition to legal arguments prepared by us stating why the court should dismiss your ticket. The judge will decide whether or not the infraction was committed or if the case should be dismissed based upon the preponderance of evidence found in your written statement and the police report.
