Have you used legal services for speeding tickets? How useful was it? Got ticket for speeding 50+ on 40 mph road.

No just appear in court and plead your case.... or better yet, just pay it and slow down next tine.

I got a lawyer for a ticket and when I went to court, the police officer also showed up (uncommon), he saw the lawyer, and walked out immediately. Definitely worth the $400

How much was the ticket for?

Got a lawyer for going 30+ over - knocked it down to online traffic school and no points. 100% worth it.

Also, everything was over email/phone, which was great for my travel schedule.

It depends - My brother got caught driving 90 in a 40-mile zone. He submits some paperwork in court, and the police officer did not show up. He walked away without paying anything, nothing, and no ticket on his record. Google how to fight the ticket.

Depends on the state. I’ve used legal services in many instances, and yet in some just represented myself. Legal or self was no help in MA, NJ, VA, MD, however legal services in TX have been awesome! Depending on your work travel and time availability, going the lawyer route may be worth it.

Is it reckless driving? If not, I would just pay the ticket.

I did and it was worth it to me. I ended up paying the same $ amount as the ticket, but it went towards the lawyer + a reduced ticket (driving with expired tabs) + driving class.

Yep, hired a lawyer for an 80+ in a 65 on 95 in NC while I was driving through on the way to vacation in VA from SC in 2009. Paid $300 for a NC lawyer and all I ended up with was a ~$250 fine with no points or anything, if memory serves. Completed the lawyer transaction over the phone and via email.

EY1 - surprisingly (not), the American system is no different to most developing nations. The US has done an amazing job to make all “dealings” legal, whereas in many developing countries it is still done the good ole cash is king way. The same is true for American politics... sad but true!

Usually an easy ticket to dismiss. Which state are you in? Did they use radar/lidar?

every time a consultant glorifies their coffee addiction and reveres Starbucks, it grinds my gears. But this is cruel - close the damn stores.

Would you shut down the entire economy to save one life? What about 1,000? 50,000? Like where is your limit? I think that is the main question in all this that is uncomfortable to think about.
