Speeding ticket reductions are the most common solution to speeding tickets in Asheville, or surrounding areas. Many of my clients wonder if I can get their speeding ticket reduced for them. The answer to this question is almost always yes. The only general rule that ruins a reduction is excessive speed such as 90mph or 100mph and higher. In those cases, it depends case by case, county by county as to whether a deal can be reached. One thing is for certain, I've seen ticket reductions ruin a client's position many times because they didn't know about DMV rules, and the DA doesn't have time, nor is even technically allowed to help you determine your best option.
Reductions for speeding violations in NC are typical negotiations that district attorneys will agree to on a regular basis. The reality is, they don't have time to argue all day with people over how fast they were going, or to have trials related to this issue. So the easiest way to deal with it, is to allow some latitude in negotiating the speed, usually to 9mph over. There are two reasons this is helpful for your speeding ticket.
First of all, NC insurance statutes allow one 9mph over ticket every three years. Also, if your ticket was charged at a speed above 15mph over, then you've been charged with a class 3 misdemeanor. Many of my clients, particularly out of state travelers find this shocking and preposterous. Nevertheless, the reduction will render your speeding ticket an infraction at 9mph over. Fines are still negotiable with court costs due separately. Fines depend on the county you're in, the individual DA who is offering it, and the rate of speed over the limit you were charged with. Court costs are almost always much higher than the fine.
If you've recently received a reduction for a speeding ticket, you may be in danger of insurance and licensing issues if you reduce another ticket too soon. There are several other options that will work, make sure you call an experienced Asheville traffic ticket lawyer today to discuss your best options.
