Kenosha Speeding Defense Attorney

Lawyer for Traffic Violations Serving Kenosha County

Few drivers go through life without ever getting a speeding ticket. These violations can happen when you least expect them. You may be driving along, possibly keeping pace with the traffic around you, when suddenly you see flashing red and blue lights in your peripheral vision. You may then be pulled over and accused of speeding. Even if you deny that you were going too fast, you will likely be issued a ticket. Traffic tickets can be more than an annoyance. They can affect things like your insurance rates and in some cases, even your driver's license. Fortunately, there are other ways of dealing with a speeding ticket than simply paying a fine and moving on.

You have the option of hiring an attorney to represent you in court and fight back against the ticket. By paying the ticket, you are effectively admitting that you were speeding. This may not be the right move. Brady Cole Trial Lawyers is skilled in defending those who have been issued a citation for speeding. In many cases, we are able to show that there is not enough proof that you were exceeding the speed limit.

How a Kenosha Speeding Defense Lawyer Can Help You

While a speeding ticket is far less serious than an offense like an OWI, it can still have a serious impact. The consequences of a speeding ticket go far beyond the fine - although you may be surprised at how high the fine can be for this relatively minor traffic violation. Paying the fine is the path of least resistance, and it may be the easy option, but that does not mean it is the best option.

Wisconsin, like many states, uses a point system to track drivers with moving violations. If you get too many points on your driver's license, you could lose your driving privileges. Speeding is considered a moving violation, which carries more points than a non-moving violation, such as having a headlight out.

One way a traffic violation defense attorney can help is by going to court with the goal of having your ticket reduced to a non-moving violation. This can mean fewer points on your license and a lower fine. However, in many cases, a ticket can be dismissed outright when you are represented by an attorney.

Another common fear related to speeding tickets many people have is that their insurance premiums will go up. There are steps we as traffic attorneys can take to prevent this. In many cases, hiring an attorney to deal with a speeding ticket can save you time, money, and trouble in the long run.

How Our Traffic Lawyers Fight Speeding Tickets

Brady Cole Trial Lawyers is well-versed in a number of powerful defense strategies for fighting speeding tickets. We may be able to make a convincing case for having your ticket dismissed using strategies like:

  • Excluding radar evidence - Many people who are pulled over for speeding were targeted by speed-detecting radar technology. This technology is fallible. Unless you were the only car on the road, it is possible that an officer actually read the speed of a different vehicle. Additionally, radar equipment must be properly calibrated in order to produce reliable results.
  • Questioning an officer's perceptions - Many speeding tickets and other traffic violations come down to your word against the officer's. It has been proven time and time again that humans are not always able to accurately determine a vehicle's speed. Any number of factors could have caused an officer to believe that you were speeding when you were not.

Working with a traffic attorney gives you the best possible chance of beating your ticket and avoiding the potentially harsh consequences.
