Q: If I lose at trial for a $218 speeding ticket will o have to pay more
The officer said my exact speed was 86 in a 65 but didn’t use a radar gun and gave me a $218 ticket. I know I wasn’t going that fast and the device he used has been proven to be wrong and it is my first offense and only timed me for 2.45 seconds and put me as a maximum speeding ticket and I’m wondering if I could win if I went to trail for this? But I’m worried if I lose will I have to pay more
A: Did you get the ticket in PA or NJ? If it is PA you will have to attend a license suspension hearing with Penndot for excessive speeds to determine if they will be suspending your license. Additionally, it is a 5 point offense and 5 points is the most you can get for a ticket in PA. You should really get a lawyer to help save your license. Many judges will let your lawyer appear in court for you so you may not have to attend the hearing. If your ticket was in NJ, then you need to speak with a NJ lawyer. Good luck!
