How to get a speeding ticket reduced...

without an attorney!!! This is a long read but it will save you money and keep you from filing for chapter 7 bankruptcy or somethin. I'm in California so the courts may vary where you're at, but it should be relatively the same.

1. Be courteous to the officer even if you don't agree with the ticket. They take notes after the stop so if you decide to go to court, you don't want him to have bad stuff to say. Also, if you decide to go to court and he wrote down good stuff, he may decide not to even show up. In that case you automatically win.

2. Go onto the cities court website and look to file an extension for the date written on your ticket. I filed a 45 day extension followed by a 30 day extension, however, this may vary where you live. This works for a couple reasons. A.) It gives you more time to accrue some money and B.) It fucks with the officers schedule. They usually schedule their holiday/vacation schedule ahead of time so your chance of landing on his kids birthday or something increases.

3. After your extensions run out it's usually time to face the music and go to court. Depending where you're at, it may be an arraignment first (pled guilty/not guilty/ ask for traffic school). That was the case for me, all I had to do was go up, plead guilty, and bam I got my ticket reduced $160 dollars. I knew I was guilty and that my ticket wasn't going to get dismissed, so I was really just after a reduction. If you feel you aren't guilty you would plead not guilty, receive an actual hearing date, then want to go home and prepare a defense. A lot of stuff isn't going to get thrown out because it's your word vs. the officer, but if you know you aren't guilty and can prove it, then by all means take him to trial. The best part is if you change the trial date (up to 4 days notice) it's more likely he won't show a.k.a. Automatic Win.

4. I've found the easiest way to not get a speeding ticket is to not speed. It usually works pretty well ;)


Now a couple speed machines!!!

  14. Most tickets can get reduced if you play it smart when stopped. Medical excuses work wonders in getting tickets reduced sometimes even dismissed depending on your illness.

  15. Great tips, and just be honest with the cop. Sometimes you have a semi legitimate reason and if you're not endangering anyone else's life, it might look better for you.

  17. Man, that Ford Falcon engine bay looks sweet. I really like the unique look of the backwards heads/turbo manifold in the middle. I bet it makes piping a lot easier, too.
