There is more than one way to fight a traffic ticket

A traffic ticket is not the end of the world, but it can impact your life in many ways. For example, if you have received several traffic tickets in the not-so-distant past, another one could result in a license suspension and/or insurance premium hike.

If you receive a traffic ticket, you have two basic options:

  • Pay the ticket and move on.
  • Fight the ticket in court.

If you decide to fight a traffic ticket, you need to go into the process with an idea of how you will win your case. Here are some of the most common defense strategies:

  • Dispute the officer’s opinion on what happened leading up to the ticket.
  • Dispute the officer’s presentation of evidence.
  • Present your own evidence with the idea of proving that you did not break the law.
  • Show that you had a good reason for breaking the law.
  • Argue that you had to make an illegal maneuver to prevent an accident.

There is no way of knowing which one of these traffic ticket defense strategies is best until you clearly understand why you were pulled over.

Once you understand all the details associated with your traffic ticket, you can begin to formulate a strategy for fighting back.

Since there is often gray area associated with a traffic ticket, as is the case when an officer has to make a judgment call, it’s not of the question that your ticket could be thrown out. You simply need to present your case in a matter that compels the judge to take your side.
