Speeding tickets are classified by how much you were exceeding the speed limit by. It is not a defense to claim that the speed limit was not posted.
- Exceeding the speed limit by 1 to 14 mph over the limit is 2 points.
- Exceeding the speed limit by 15 to 29 mph over the limit is 4 points.
- Exceeding the speed limit by 30 or more mph over the limit is 5 points.
In all speeding tickets cases, the ticket issued must have written on its face, the speed at which you were allegedly driving, the speed which is prima facie unlawful, and the time and place of the alleged violation. If the officer issued your ticket based on Radar, there are various pieces of evidence that should be requested of the State and that you are absolutely entitled to as the defense. For example, you are entitled to the radar calibrations as well as the tuning fork certificates. In addition, the officer must provide for the defense, the time, place and location of the radar device at the time he made the reading. He must also establish that he is a qualified operator of the device.
Using radar is just one way an officer might prove you were speeding. He may also pace you by using his own car and speedometer to prove you were speeding. If this was the officer’s method, then he must also provide proof that his own speedometer was calibrated correctly. In addition, in order to prove the case, the officer must prove he maintained a constant distance between his vehicle and your vehicle long enough to accurately estimate your speed.

You can be sure that we will work tirelessly on your behalf for the best possible outcome.
