Why You Should Fight a Speeding Ticket

I am Anthony N. Palumbo an experienced Union County, New Jersey traffic defense lawyer who will aggressively fight your speeding ticket, reckless driving charge, DWI/DUI or other traffic offense. Read on to find out why you should always fight a speeding ticket.

I understand how you feel when a police officer pulls you over and gives you a ticket. It can be a frightening, annoying and frustrating experience.

When you choose not to fight your traffic violations ticket, there are consequences to deal with that many people don't think about. The fine you are willing to pay is only the beginning of your problems.

I have over 35 years experience defending individuals charged with traffic violations. Let his knowledge and training help you to protect your New Jersey driving privileges.

Hiring a defense lawyer will give you an advantage when you go to court to take care of your traffic ticket. Whether it was for speeding, reckless driving, driving while your license is suspended, driving without a valid license, careless driving, running a light or driving without insurance, I will speak to the Prosecutor prior to your pleading guilty and get your points and fines reduced or dismissed.

Protect your driving privileges. Before you plead guilty, consider the following:

  • The Court Clerk records your speeding ticket in the data base.
  • Insurance companies check your driving record and may increase your premiums or they could cancel your insurance coverage completely!
  • An increase in insurance premium costs will affect you for three years.
  • If you receive two additional tickets within three years, your rates may double. After your ticket is recorded, it is too late to change your mind and fight it.
  • Even minor moving violations can cause your insurance rates to increase. When insurance companies can see moving violations on your driving record, it often indicates that the driver has a higher risk driving behavior. When the speeding ticket adds points to your license, your insurance rates can be affected for three years or more.
