How can I fix my Raleigh speeding ticket?

Raleigh Speeding Ticket Lawyer

A simple speeding ticket can have serious consequences for you.  In addition to a fine your insurance rates could go through the roof and you could possibly lose your drivers’ license. By paying the fine you are pleading guilty (possibly to a misdemeanor offense).

Do not pay a speeding ticket without talking to a lawyer. By paying the ticket, you are pleading guilty. Contact our Cary office located by I-40 in Wake County to arrange for a free consultation.

Attorney Wiley Nickel helps his clients with contesting speeding or other traffic tickets. In many cases, he has been able to have charges for a moving violation reduced to a lower level violation or dismissed altogether. He may be able to appear in court on your behalf and handle the entire matter for you, keep your insurance rates from rising, and help you keep your driving privileges. If your license is revoked as part of a plea agreement or sentence, he will work to arrange limited driving privileges.

Hiring a lawyer for speeding or other traffic ticket defense may be a practical and reasonable option.  By successfully contesting a speeding ticket you should be able to keep your license, your good record, and prevent a later moving violation from being charged as a second offense which is subject to higher penalties.  How fast were you going? What was the speed limit? Was the technology used to clock your speed reliable? A charge of driving more than 20 miles per hour over a 55 mph limit is very different than a charge of going 55 in a 25 mile per hour zone.  Every situation is unique and only after talking to an experienced lawyer will you know your options.  The name of the game is making sure your insurance rates don’t go up.

Effective for offenses committed on or after January 1, 2012 a new statute provides for a civil revocation of a limited learner's permit or provisional license of a person under age 18 if the person is charged with a "criminal moving violation" as defined in that statute. An example of this could be a charge of Speeding more than 15 miles over the limit or in excess of 80 MPH.  This new statute appears to require the officer to arrest the young motorist and bring them before the magistrate who may immediately revoke their privilege.
