Almost everyone in their lifetime gets some sort of moving violation issued to them. Most people just “rubber-stamp” a guilty plea and send it in with their money for the fine. This may or may not be the best choice; why? There are several reasons why you may be not be found guilty:
- Very often, the police officer is in a rush and will either omit something or write the wrong thing on the ticket. This may be a technicality but are often grounds to get the ticket dismissed. In some situations, you also have certain rights under the law to request a supporting deposition from the police officer to get a more detailed explanation of your violation. Very often, this is neglected too by the police officer. This also could be grounds to have the ticket dismissed. The most important thing to remember is to contact an attorney right away when it comes to moving violations as there are time restraints. Most often, pleading not guilty to a ticket will not put you in any worse position than pleading guilty, as you can always change your plea later.

- There are various time response times for traffic tickets depending on the place you received your ticket. They are not always spelled out on the front or back of your ticket. You should have an attorney do this for you as soon as possible. Protect your legal rights immediately – call the Law Offices of Paul Bryan Schneider, P.C.
- It is common knowledge that Courts often offer better plea bargains to traffic violators with attorneys. The reason is simple: There is a better chance of the Court(or prosecuting attorney) losing the case to the violator with an attorney than without one. Also, the traffic Courts tend to conference cases with attorneys first. Often, you can spend half your day(or evening) waiting for your case to be called even if you are the first one there. This is yet another reason to hire an attorney so you are not wasting your time(especially if you need to be working) in Court.

- Lastly, sometimes where you get the ticket may be the most important factor. Every jurisdiction works differently.
