The most common type of ticket is the speeding ticket. While the speed may very, the ticket is generally the same. The officer registers your speed on their device, they stop you, hand you a citation, and quickly get back to their spot to do it all over again. The vast majority of people simply pay their ticket, not realizing they have options that could keep the ticket off their record and away from their insurance.
As a traffic ticket attorney, I am familiar with both the procedure the officer must follow as well as the requirements of the speed measuring device the officer used. The officer typically uses either a Lidar (laser device) unit or a standard radar unit. The Lidar unit must be stationary, while the radar may be stationary, moving same direction, or moving opposite direction. Knowing these functions, and the legal arguments against them, is essential to fighting your ticket. The questions is not whether or not you were speeding, it is whether or not they can prove it.

All moving violations will be reported to the DOL and then your insurance company. These can range from a simple lane violation or running a stop sign, all the way up to the most severe violation, Negligent Driving in the 2nd degree. Even simple moving violation tickets can significantly impact your insurance rates. My advice is to never simply pay a moving violation, always fight for your driving record to remain clean.
There are multiple ways to fight a moving violation ticket. The starting point is typical to attack the procedure and whether it was properly followed. Most often we are able to develop arguments that result in keeping these tickets off your driving record and away from your insurance. The key to success is knowing the prosecutors, judges, and which arguments work. A simple moving violation may seem minor, but it can have a significant impact in the long term.
