Speeding tickets may seem like the least-serious criminal charge you can receive. However, a conviction for speeding can lead to serious consequences, including:
- Increased insurance rates
- Traffic points
Points can cause serious problems with your driving record. Every moving violation and traffic ticket, including speeding tickets, brings points against your driving record. Just six points can result in a mandatory 15-day driver's license suspension.
At the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, law firm of Shaffer & Engle Law Offices, LLC, we provide experienced and aggressive legal defense against all traffic violations, including speeding charges. Our attorney team includes a former instructor to Pennsylvania police officers regarding police practices and procedures. We are highly effective in defending speeding charges.
Experienced Help To Protect Your Driving Privileges
Our attorney team is has handled over 1,000 criminal cases, including hundreds of cases involving speeding, unsafe passing, racing and other speed-related issues. We can provide aggressive and knowledgeable defense, including defense based on:
- Police machinery and police operator error. Speed-detecting machines are often unreliable, and their results can be challenged based on their maintenance, police training and police error. We have successfully challenged speeding tickets based on police officers' failure to avoid obstructions when using Accutrak machines and other radar devices.
- Roadway conditions. Busy traffic and inclement weather can result in incorrect radar readings.
