    If you have to go to the courthouse, will you have to pay for parking?

    Quoted from rosh:

    A really good attorney could potentially get you off or dramatically reduced, but that kind of lawyer is going to cost a ton more than the ticket, so only reason to do that would be if you were in danger of losing your license. These kind of speed traps are designed to make it as unattractive as possible to fight it, often the judge is just going to rubber stamp it, as these tickets are what are funding the justice system in that county.

    I always wondered, what would qualify as a good attorney for something so simple as a speeding ticket?

    Quoted from rosh:

    A friend dealt with a situation like this and the attorney he used specialized in this kind of thing, got the cop so twisted up in what happened, various details and what he was saying that he ended up contradicting himself, and got the case dismissed.


    Was it this guy?

    Quoted from jgentry:

    Unfortunately unless you have a friend in law you are probably best off just paying the fine. I can understand the situation you were in and you seem like a pretty reasonable person but you did get clocked going 100 and 30mph over the speed limit. A good lawyer has decent chance of getting your off completely but it will cost you more then the ticket. So you need to decide if it has additional benefits for it not to be on your record and if lawyer fees and court dates are worth it. The first thing a good lawyer is going to do is request the calibration records for the radar the cop was using. Police departments are historically terrible about recalibrating and certifying them on time and if it's not certified they have to throw out your result. Lots of other little tricks a good lawyer will know that can help you get a reduction or the ticket thrown out.

    That's what I was asking about having a "good" lawyer. If we all know about the calibration thing, I would assume every lawyer in the world has heard of it....
    I just don't see what could be so involved with a speeding ticket that there's even a slight difference in lawyers.?

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Totally right...none of the "good" lawyers make a living in the speeding ticket world regardless (seriously...not a single one). If you are any good there is far more high paying work out there for you as an attorney than arguing about speeding tickets and trying to get someone who doesn't want to pay a $500 ticket to pay you $500 for your time crossing a law enforcement officer on the stand about his calibrations...
    A "good" lawyer, in the context of resolving this particular speeding ticket, would be someone who would have a good rapport with the prosecutor or law enforcement agency who issued the ticket...

    So not so much with knowing/arguing the law and more to do with who you know? huh.

    Quoted from mcclad:

    Too bad you were not driving through Hazzard County Georgia. You could have just jumped a dirt ramp over the police car and gotten away.

    I usually go with Lupe's escape.

    I once got 7 no-front-tag tickets in one summer.

    Dude, how can you put Levi on ignore. He is very entertaining and he is pretty cool once you get past his subtlety.

    I have everyone on ignore. I can only see my own posts. Don't even ask how I just quoted you.

    So people will type in their phone while driving that they saw a pothole? Sounds safe.
