On the road there are numerous chnages in posted speed. However I do not know if I was speeding or not but to best of my knoweldge i wasnt.. also officer didnt tel;l me what speed I was going in what range. Also how long do I have to either pay or sdet a court date? officer said I had 90 days, but the ticket on the siude with options says 30 days. Last can I I set a hearing to ask the courtt o set it aside or reduce the $164.00 cost?
You can contest the ticket. I would abide by the date listed on since it is the shorter of the two. more informaton may also be found through your local clerk site. If you do decide to set a hearing, you should prepare by taking photos of the stretch of road showing the signs and changes in speed in addition to where you were first lit up by the cop. If contested, the cop will have to show up as well. However, if the cop shows up, it is unlikely that you will be successful unless you can convince the hearing officer or judge that the speed limit was improperly posted.
You can fight this. It is possible the officer got you in the wrong speed zone but you should go back and check that. In the meantime, you should know the officer was wrong on the time allowed. YOU ONLY HAVE 30 DAYS to request a hearing, elect school, or pay the ticket. You can go to court to ask for a lesser fine but you should talk to an attorney in your area to see what your chances are.
For a Florida speeding ticket you can contact the court and arrange to take the Florida online traffic school. This also reduces the amount of your fine. Another option is to contact one of the ticket clinics and have them handle it for you. Either way should keep the ticket off your record and avoid having to spend a day in traffic court.
