What is a Speeding Ticket?
Speeding tickets are the most common traffic infractions in California. The system in this state is particularly hard, but you can always fight a speeding ticket.
And in many cases you can get rid of that speeding ticket by disputing it with a traffic ticket attorney. It will mean going to court. However, it’s worth it.

Are Speeding Tickets the Same throughout California?
A speeding ticket, and its consequences, will vary depending on where you are in the state. Counties can set their own penalties, and some counties even have penalties that exceed state fines.
There are also additional fees for speeding in school and construction zones. You need to monitor the rules for each county, which is why you should hire an attorney.

Can Speeding Tickets Make Me Lose my License?
They can. If you accumulate four points in a year, for example, your license can be suspended.
The number of points and how long they last for depends on the offense. For example, in California a moving violation will give you one point. Reckless driving comes with two points.
What’s the Best Way to Deal with a Speeding Ticket?
After the officer gives you your ticket and departs, you should seek out legal help to aid you in fighting your ticket. You may be able to go to traffic school to have both the fine and the points removed. Sometimes an attorney can get the speeding ticket rescinded entirely.
