Tarrant County Speeding Ticket Lawyer

Have you received a speeding ticket in Tarrant County, Texas? Don’t give in and pay up just yet. Speak with an attorney from the Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy first.

One of the most common types of traffic tickets is the speeding ticket. But just because getting a speeding ticket is common doesn’t mean it’s no big deal. These can be very serious tickets, and depending on how many you’ve had in the recent past, you could be at risk of losing your drivers license.

Paying your ticket just so you can put the issue behind you is not always in your best interest. When you pay a traffic ticket, you are admitting that you violated the law, and your driving record will be impacted. This could affect you in the future, especially if you need your drivers license to remain employed.

If you need help fighting a speeding ticket, regardless of the circumstances, a Tarrant County speeding ticket lawyer from our firm can help. We’ll help you fight to have your ticket dismissed or get it reduced to a minor offense that won’t go on your driving record.

As most people are aware, the seriousness of your ticket depends on how many miles over the speed limit you were traveling, as well as where the speeding occurred.

How to Defend Against a Speeding Ticket in Tarrant County

It wouldn’t be fair if an officer could accuse you of speeding without providing you any way to defend yourself. That’s why there is a hearing where your attorney can argue your case before a judge. There are many ways to defend against a speeding conviction.

You could have been ticketed when you didn’t really do anything wrong. It’s also possible that something outside your control forced you to increase your speed. For example, you might have increased your speed to avoid a collision.

The following are some of the defenses your attorney could use to keep a Tarrant County speeding ticket off of your driving record:

  • Your attorney could attack the officer’s method of determining your speed, such as pacing or radar.
  • The camera used to capture your speed wasn’t working properly.
  • Some kind of emergency forced you to increase your speed.
  • The officer mistook your vehicle for another vehicle that was speeding.
  • You weren’t speeding at all, and the officer is mistaken.
  • You were speeding, but you were driving safely for the conditions at the time.
  • If you were involved in an accident and cited for speeding, something else might have caused the crash.

Speeding Tickets and Your Tarrant County Driving Record

When you get a moving violation in Tarrant County, points are added to your driving record. The Texas DMV calls the point system the Driver Responsibility Program. Here’s the general guideline on how many points are added for violations:

  • Two points for any moving violation
  • Three points if your moving violation resulted in an accident

These points accumulate quickly, and if you have too many, your drivers license could be suspended. In addition, you could be forced to pay surcharges in order to retain your license. It’s best not to take that risk. Call a Tarrant County speeding attorney to fight your ticket.
