Speeding Tickets

Augusta, Georgia Speeding Tickets Defense Attorney

When you are pulled over for speeding, you may not have realized how fast you were traveling or that the speed limit had changed. When you receive a citation, you may think that the easiest thing to do is simply pay the fine and send it to the court in the mail. When you send in a check to the court to pay your fine, you are pleading guilty to speeding. This may result in penalties beyond a ticket, including a driving record, an increase in insurance premiums, and could affect your driving privileges. At Claridge Law Firm, we provide strategic and aggressive defense to individuals charged with speeding.

You have the right to challenge your speeding ticket. We will investigate the allegations of the officers including how fast you were traveling, what the speed limit was, and whether the officer used proper equipment to calculate your speed. Contact us for an immediate consultation to protect your rights.

A speeding ticket is no minor offense and could result in serious penalties, especially for repeat offenders. If you have an existing speeding ticket record and are concerned about your right to drive and the additional consequences of repeat speeding tickets and traffic violations, our firm can provide the aggressive defense you need to protect your rights.

We will take the following action in your case:

  • Investigate the allegations of the police officer including how fast your were going and what the speed limit was
  • Determine whether proper equipment was used to assess your speed and challenge any faulty evidence in court
  • Seek to minimize your charge through plea bargaining and negotiations
  • Minimize penalties to prevent a driving record, increased insurance premiums, license suspension or revocation

Plea bargaining

A speeding ticket or moving violation is a worse offense than other traffic violations. If we cannot get your charges completely dropped, we may be able to plea bargain with the DA to reduce your speeding ticket to a lesser charge. This will allow you to prevent a traffic violation from affecting your driving record, your insurance premiums, and could protect you against losing your license if you have a future offense.
