What to do when you get pulled over for a Speeding Ticket
The first thing to think about when getting pulled over for a speeding ticket is to remain calm. Police officers face many harrowing, dangerous situations on a daily basis. Your calm demeanor will assure the officer that you are cooperative minded and not a threat. This will hopefully lead to a cordial meeting. Be as polite as possible and make sure there is adequate light inside your vehicle. Offer your driver's license and proof of insurance when asked.
Consequences of a Speeding Ticket
One of the biggest issues with speeding tickets is that people don't take them seriously enough. Most people just ask the court where you can pay online to "get it over with." Unknowingly, they could jeopardize the health of their driving record, resulting in future license suspension, raised insurance fees, and negative points added to their record. On top of this, speeding tickets can result in fees reaching as high as thousands of dollars if the offense is of a reckless nature.
Speeding in a School Zone
One particularly sensitive area of the law involves school zones. Children travel to and from school in the early morning and early afternoon. Most schools deploy "school zones" with severely limited speed limits in these areas. The law requires drivers to slow down to these speed limits, yield to children, and stop for school buses. These areas also often attract officers using speedometers to track your speed. Driving even a few miles over the school speed limit could result in hundreds of dollars in fines. Hiring an attorney to help protect your record in these cases is important.
I got a pretty hefty speeding ticket while test driving an Audi A6. The San Antonio Police Department officer issued me three citations at one time. Mr. Coquat got two of the fines substantially reduced, my probation time reduced, and the third citation totally dismissed – all for $300. The lines of communication were really clear and I always got to speak to a lawyer, too. What a concept!
I had never used a lawyer to fight my speeding tickets before. I will always use The Coquat Law Firm from now on. A Bexar County Sheriff issued me a speeding ticket on Bulverde Rd. in Pct. 3 and wanted me to appear in Pct. 1 for court. Justin Coquat caught the technicality and got my ticket dismissed. I saved a ton of money.
Mr. Coquat got my daughter’s traffic ticket totally dismissed. He noticed the Bexar County Sheriff who issued the traffic ticket near Bulverde Rd. filed it in the wrong precinct.He got the ticket thrown out of court and I only paid $150.00, total!
