I got pulled over for speeding 24 miles above posted and I got speeding ticket with civil traffic. I have to go back home, before court date. I tried tikd and off the record, but they both don't cover the court on ticket. What is my options? I want to contest it. The court is page city magistrate court.
Good Day and Thank you for taking the time to post your question. It sounds like the officer chose to cite you under the criminal speed statute. If that’s the case the matter is assigned to a prosecuting attorney to prosecute the case and most courts require you to appear once If not twice throughout the case unless you hire an attorney.
I recommend you reach out at an experienced traffic attorney like myself to help you navigate this often tricky process and even help negotiate with the prosecutor towards the best outcome possible.
Most attorneys, myself included, offer free consults.
Hope that helps
Let us know if we can help!
All the Best!
