Q: 16 yr grandson speeding 86 in 45 Plus racing other car. Can speed be reduced? What should we expect?
A: You should advise your grandson to hire an experienced traffic attorney in the county where he was charged. Your grandson's prior driving record and the District Attorney's office policies will determine whether a reduction is possible. This is 41 over the speed limit, so your grandson is looking a suspension of his driving privileges. I do not recommend your grandson trying to represent himself. You may even see the DA's Office trying to make an example of him, too, due to the extreme high rate of speed. Best option is to hire an experienced traffic attorney who regularly practices in that county to negotiate the best possible deal to try to avoid suspension if possible.
