I got pulled over and I tried telling the cop that I was deaf and could not hear him, but he ignored me. I gave him my license and he walked away then came back with a ticket for speeding.
While you haven't said in what state , county or parish you received the ticket, generally speaking you have various options depending on your driving record. For example many jurisdictions offer a driving school for first offenders that will result in the dismissal of the ticket, after various fees are paid of course. In addition, the potential penalties are higher for more extreme violations of the posted limit. In short, you have a fixed time to respond. the time frame is on the ticket as well as the where and how. Many times the traffic court clerks can provide limited assistance with the procedural issues involved. However, your best course of action is to hire an attorney who practices in the jurisdiction where your ticket was issued. He or she will be able to offer you professional advice based on the specific facts of your charge. While it may seem to be more cost effective to try to do it yourself, in most cases an experienced attorney can get you a better result than you could ever hope to get on your own.
I hope this helps. I wish you the best of luck with the defense of your ticket.
