I got a speeding ticket, is that a criminal case?
In short, yes, speeding is a crime. Depending on the severity of your ticket, you may choose to fight it in court. Doing so can sometimes overturn your ticket, but the likelihood that you will win on your own, is slim. Hiring a criminal defense lawyer can help you understand the severity of your case and the best course of action moving forward. Most speeding tickets are traffic violations and only require you to pay a fine. Fines can be paid online or in person if you chose that route.
However, you have the option to plead “Not Guilty” or request a driving safety course to dismiss your citation. More often than not, you should consult with a criminal defense lawyer before deciding what the best course of action is for you.
