There were hundreds of thousands of speeding tickets given out in Florida last year, and I'm not really going out on a limb to say this year and next year will be no different. Let's face it, these speeding tickets bring in a lot of revenue for the state. Wouldn't it be nice if you had a secret weapon to beat your speeding ticket in Florida the next time you get pulled over?
Well, I don't know about any secret weapons, but what I do know, is we've helped hundreds of thousands of clients avoid points, traffic school, and yes, even beat their ticket, including speeding tickets. How do we do it? If I told you hard work, you might not believe me, but trust me, staying current on all the new regulations and laws is a great start.
Here on this blog, we are always passing along tips to help you get out of a speeding ticket, help you try to avoid points on your license, help you if you get out of a red light camera ticket and we've even put together a series of traffic ticket eBooks dedicated to helping people with all kinds of traffic matters.
Why do we do this? Simple. We believe Florida's traffic ticket system has gotten out of control. The State has lost its way and shifted the focus from public safety, to creating revenue. As a result, we feel people should fight back, so we are doing all we can to help people.
How else do you explain the insane increase in fines if you pay a speeding ticket? The average fine is at least $200 and it's not uncommon for someone to get a $400 or $600 fine. That's nuts and it didn't used to be that way. Just a few years ago, these fines were less than $100, and yet, as government's piggy banks shrunk, traffic fines went up.
As you know, I've spent countless posts giving you all the reasons why you shouldn't just pay a speeding ticket in Florida (or any other type of ticket for that matter). Most of the time, it's because it's just not in your best interest to pay it. It's in the state's interest. If enough of us fought our tickets, either by ourselves or with a Florida Traffic Ticket Attorney, we would force the state to go find another cash cow to milk.
