A: You can technically receive court supervision twice within a 12 months period, but it is not guaranteed. You (or an attorney) would likely need to attend court to keep the second speeding ticket off of your record.

A: You are allowed two Court Supervisions in a 12 month period but there is no guarantee that you will receive Court Supervision a second time. You really should hire an attorney to assist you with this new ticket. Make sure to tell them everything mentioned above. That attorney will greatly increase your odds of getting Court Supervision a second time.

A: Legally you are permitted Court Supervision two times in 12 months. it is up to the Judge to permit the second one and I would hire a Traffic Law attorney in that county to assist you with the second ticket as they will certainly assist in getting Court Supervision in the second ticket
