When Your Future Is On The Line,
To Whom Do You Trust Your Freedom?

Should you fight your speeding ticket?

As a Californian who was recently served a speeding ticket, you may be wondering if it's worth your time to fight back. The answer will be different for everyone depending on your own personal circumstances. Today, we'll look at some of the pros and cons of fighting a traffic ticket.

FindLaw believes you should put some thought into deciding if you want to fight a speeding ticket. On one hand, if you fight it, you have a chance of getting the fine reduced or even getting the ticket dismissed entirely. This can be beneficial if you are worried about the cost of the ticket itself. Another, longer-term benefit is that it will keep a speeding ticket off of your record. This can keep your insurance rates from being raised, which can cost a lot over time.

However, the process of fighting a speeding ticket can be drawn-out and tedious. If your ticket isn't particularly expensive, you might actually end up losing more money fighting it than you save by not paying the fine. This is especially true if you have to take time off of work to make court dates. If the ticket isn't particularly severe, it might not have a big impact on your insurance rates, either.

If you are struggling with a speeding ticket and aren't sure what to do, consider contacting an attorney who excels in handling traffic offenses. They can help you decide if it's worth it for you personally to fight a speeding ticket, as well as what your potential gains and losses may be.
