To Admin and Members: Fighting Traffic Ticket forum?

Recommended Posts

Hi Admin & Everyone, 

 

It's me you know the member who 5-0 in court(just trying to get some credibility here before I make my request, lol).

 

Admin and Group:

 

I have been fighting some traffic violations here in california and have been successfull. As we all know traffic citations can be a financial headache and are going up regularly. 

 

I was wondering if the members would like opening up a Fighting Traffic Tickets forum. I have fought 3 tickets successully and would like to not only share my experience but would like a place to network with members regarding future tickets.

 

... okay, I just got a ticket two weeks ago, and I have to prepare a defense. It's going to take a group effort this time, 

 

Help me Admin.

The one major problem with your idea is that the traffic laws very WIDELY in every state and then within the jurisdictions locally within those states.  Unlike a credit case which is civil, there are traffic offenses that come with some pretty severe consequences including possible jail, criminal convictions, points on (or off) your license, increased insurance premiums to name a few.

 

What works for you in your court and jurisdiction may have zero relevance in another state and could end up in some very bad things happening for someone.  Not everyone is cut out to defend themselves in court as you did.  The best course of action is to discuss the situation with a local attorney.  Most will tell you on the phone for free what to expect from court and whether you are better off with a lawyer or not.  When I got a ticket the lawyer told me what judge would hear it, how he normally ruled, and what to say to get it dismissed, FOR FREE.  He was right and I walked out.  I would NEVER have taken advice from the internet on something that could affect my ability to earn a living by costing me my license. 

 

Something to think about....

I called a local attorney with a great reputation in traffic court, DUI, and misdemeanor crimes.  He practiced actively in the county my ticket was in and knew what judge heard the expired license tickets in that county.  EVERYTHING he said would happen did and he gave me all the advice over the phone for free.

And I would ease up on the lead foot. ;-)

 

Yeah, I was going to say that but debated.  4 tickets in such a short time regardless of defeating any of them shows that it is time to consider a safe driving course too.

 

Many lawyers tell traffic citation defendants looking to fight it to stop and think that this is likely the first time they were caught and consider it a "fee" for all the times they got away with it.  I kind of get it because I used to get a speeding ticket once every five years just enough to keep my car insurance rates high. I finally figured it out and stopped getting tickets.

It wasn't in a short time it was in the course of over several years. And for your information never had a speeding ticket.

 

 

Also, we have one forum for all states regarding going to court. So it's obvious that members would mention what state they are talking about.

They were not speeding tickets, never had one.  :mohawk:

 

Based upon the number of erroneous conclusions in this thread alone, do you really want a forum geared toward ticket defense?

What do think, lol. I think I will start my own ticket forum, based on the number of PI attorney's out there looking for work, might be very  $$$$$. 

 

 

.... I'm looking for partners, lmao all the way to the bank.

Maybe fighting red light camera tickets forum. I say this because a big part of that defense is business records exceptions. You see I got some good caselaw from this site http://www.highwayrobbery.net/redlightcamsLawaaIndexTransBrfsDecisions.html and maybe it would be good to have some cross posting on both sites as to business records caselaw.
