|Can't I just fight
If you want to fight your ticket on your own, you will
likely spend hours upon hours in court and will often have to go to court two
or three separate times just for the trial. For those who have nothing but time
on their hands this may not be so bad, but for the rest of us who consider our
time to be valuable, this is not a cost effective way to handle a traffic
ticket. Most people who try on their own either end up pleading guilty or are
found guilty after a trial lasting less than 10 minutes. Then, to add insult to
injury, the judge usually adds courts costs and levies a higher fine.

fine not to come back.

Not really. You were still speeding. If the Judge
believes you, he will knock a few miles off the speed and find you guilty
anyway. But you were speeding.

dismissed entirely if properly handled.

Most of the time, yes. Insurance companies are always
looking for new ways to raise people's rates. Depending on what you are charged
with, your premium could go up by as much as 40%. Hiring an attorney to fight

getting reported in rate increases.
