Defending Speeding Tickets Properly
The importance of handling a speeding ticket properly is lost on thousands of people across the state of Texas every day. A recent post on one of our articles stated the following:
- I received a surcharge notification payment of $133.00 (some might say that appears to be extortion but government would never do that) to maintain my license. The confusion is reading about the validity of these surcharges so I am asking your advice about these charges and then the best procedure for handling such a notification along with your fees for handling the case
thanks for listening
The focus of this comment is on the surcharge penalties that DPS can assess against a driver for convictions. However, our purpose is to educate people to understand how the surcharges are assessed in the first place. Surcharges can only be assessed against a driver if the speeding ticket or any other traffic violation is reported as a conviction. This driver may have had very good intentions by simply going into the court and paying his tickets off. Once that is done, those violations must be reported as convictions. Those convictions then create surcharges. Non-payment of surcharges causes the driver to lose their license and driving privileges.
So, in order to avoid the surcharge program, the real work starts with handling the violation properly in Grand Prairie Municipal Court. We suggest you allow a speeding ticket attorney to review the matter with you. Allow the speeding ticket lawyer to enter a plea of “not guilty” on your behalf and schedule a court date to resolve the matter in the best possible way for you and your driving record.
Does this mean the speeding ticket will be dismissed? Of course not. There are attorneys who falsely advertise that by hiring them your case will be dismissed. Don’t believe it. This is a sales tactic to get your money, not your loyalty. They later tell you that deferred adjudication or defensive driving is a form of a “dismissal” when we know that this is not what the client expected when hearing that word.
Select a lawyer that you can trust to give you the good, the bad and the ugly. Speeding ticket defense is not an easy job as some outline it to be. It is tough work. However, when done properly it can save you a lot of heart ache and potential severe punishments down the road.
