Speeding Fines Process. What You should Expect

By Ben Walsh

If you have received a speeding fine there are numerous things you can do to defend yourself against the police force and there's a high possibility, dependent on where you are in the process, to fight and even reverse the alleged offence against you.

What I try to do is outline the strategies open to you at every bit of the process and tell you the right way to defend against it starting with even before you even get a ticket.

Before being pulled over.

The most straightforward way to fight your fine is to not get a ticket in the 1st place. You can achieve this with a radar detector device. These things will stop a fine before it has even occurred. The device is downloaded with the position of every camera and blackspot known and will also alert you to mobile vans etc. It'll then warn you when you are close, with live updates when using the "connected" version. Connected means the updates to your radar detector are done in real time through a sim card so you will never need to fret about a new camera catching you out.

Being pulled over.

This could well be be one of the critical points when receiving a fine whether you get it reversed or not. The police are trained to say particular things to get you to confess you are guilty. If you are mindful of their process and what to say back then this may well stop a fine taking place right there and then. It's a bit of a catch 22 though, there has to be some forward thinking on your part because if you do not know what to point out beforehand then to stop a ticket at this point will be too late. It's easy to get the info you want from my website

Straight after the event (both fixed speed camera and being pulled over)

Ok so you should have a little time to try to figure out the next step. When the section 172 arrives in the post you have 28 days to appeal a claim. Now dependent on whether you received a FPN (Fixed Penalty Notice) shortly after receiving your section 172 or not will determine what road you need to travel down. A fixed penalty speeding fineis sort of considered guilty before proved innocent because there will often be some sort of photographic evidence and it's down to you to turn that around. This can be done customarily by not going to court but using template letters to appeal the decision. If this doesn't work you can either come to a decision to accept the fine within the 28 days and get the 3 points or ready yourself to go to court.

Going to Court

There's much to be said for going to court if you have a powerful enough legal case, ranging from having your fine reduced and being completely over turned and not paying any cash. There are 3 ways I know of to prepare yourself for this eventuality. One is to do it yourself taking evidence of another legal action that's like yours where the individual has won and use that as a precedent. An alternate way is to put a legal case together as a motoring lawyer would and represent yourself. a little known ebook on my website should be well placed to help you in putting up a good legal defence. You may also use an actual motoring lawyer which we know does work because we see high visibility cases in the news. This may be extremely dear especially if you lose, although there should be a free consultation option so that they can gauge what your probabilities are.

When forming a decision do not forget that it is not just 3 points and a fine, that fine is taken into account for the following 5 years with the insurance corporations, so eventually they'll get much more money from you, not to mention moving nearer to that 12 point ban.
