(BPT) - Want to know how to avoid a speeding ticket? Easy – don’t speed. But even the most law-abiding drivers with flawless records can make mistakes and find themselves pulled over. In fact, 34 million people in the United States receive speeding tickets each year, according to the National Motorists Association.
A ticket can raise insurance rates and tarnish your driving record, according to FindLaw.com, the nation’s leading website for free legal information. If you get arrested or fined for other traffic violations, those tickets can lead to stiffer fines and penalties.
“The big rule of speeding tickets is that most come at the discretion of the police officers involved,” says Don Cosley, a criminal defense attorney of the Cosley Law Office in Chicago. “Unless the officers are working a state or federal grant where they are required to issue traffic tickets, how you interact with a police officer will play a considerable role in whether you drive away with a warning or a ticket.”
