Car at high speed

I am a San Antonio traffic ticket attorney.  If you’ve ever gotten a speeding ticket in San Antonio, you’ve probably looked at the ticket and wondered why and how the San Antonio speeding  ticket fees can be so high.  As it turns out, local laws provide  a formula the San Antonio Police Department uses to determine how much to charge drivers for a San Antonio speeding ticket.

As reported by, a website designed by motorists for other motorists who have received various types of traffic violations, the formula used in the City of San Antonio to determine most San Antonio speeding ticket fees  follows: $166.00 for the first 10 miles over the speed limit and $5.00 for each additional mile over that. The City of San Antonio website not only confirms this, it also states your ticket may be even higher if you’re stopped for speeding in a school or construction zone.

List of City of SA Fines:

While this may not be as high as other Texas cities like Austin and Houston, it is still an unnecessary expense many of us cannot afford to pay in today’s economy.  And when you consider having a speeding ticket can cause your insurance company to increase the premiums on your auto insurance policy, the cost can skyrocket even more.  Avoiding these excessive cost increases is why we believe hiring an experienced speeding ticket attorney is often the best option.  Our San Antonio traffic ticket defense lawyers fight for you to resolve and/or get your speeding ticket dismissed.  This helps you escape paying all that extra money after you get a San Antonio traffic ticket.

Still concerned hiring an experienced San Antonio speeding ticket attorney is too expensive?  Let’s go back to our friends at and see what they have to say about resolving your speeding ticket:

“You can also plead innocent and try to contest the charge. If you choose to go this route, the best way to do it is to hire a lawyer.  A good Texas traffic ticket attorney may be able to get the charges dismissed outright based on technical or procedural grounds. Traffic ticket attorney fees vary, but are usually pretty reasonable, often less than the cost of the fine itself.”

At The Coquat Law Firm, the cost of having one of our experienced speeding ticket attorneys take a look at your case is a flat rate of $150—which, as previously mentioned, is “often less than the cost of the fine itself.”  Our experienced speeding ticket attorneys are not only affordable, they also bring with them their personalized attention of doing everything they can to help get your ticket resolved, get your fines lowered, and potentially your whole case dismissed.  If you are looking for a speeding ticket attorney that will help you with the high cost of speeding ticket fees, call The Coquat Law Firm at 210-745-2825. The peace of mind that comes from not having to worry about a speeding ticket is something we can all afford to have.

Howdy terrific blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a large
amount of work? I have very little expertise in computer programming however I was
hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, should you have any ideas or tips
for new blog owners please share. I know this is off topic
however I simply needed to ask. Thank you!
