Fighting Speeding Ticket

Is It Worth Getting a Lawyer for a Speeding Ticket?

People often wonder if it is worth it to contesti a Speeding Ticket. The time you need to spend and aggravation and stress you experience in fighting the ticket often appear, at least in theory, to outweigh the benefit of potentially saving a few dollars. But usually, such a limited analysis does not do you or the situation justice. The reality is, speeding tickets can severely impact your driving privileges, carry lofty fines, and cause your insurance premiums to increase. So, not only should you contest a speeding ticket, but in all likelihood you should give serious consideration to retaining representation when faced with a speeding ticket.

Speeding tickets in excess of 5 mph over the limit in Pennsylvania will carry points, leading to costs beyond the fine itself. If you already have points on your license, or are concerned about maintaining a clean driving record, you will need to fight these tickets. Likewise, any ticket in a school zone or construction zone should be contested, as these carry significant penalties at any speed. Don't just pay the fine. Consider how the potential consequences will affect you, in both the short and the long term.
