Speeding is a common offense in the State of Virginia. At one point or another, everyone exceeds the speed limit. Whether you’re in a hurry and late for work or an important meeting or you’re simply distracted by a conversation you’re having with someone else in the car, it’s not at all out of the ordinary for honest, upstanding drivers to accidentally break the law.
That said, not everyone who is stopped for speeding actually exceeded the speed limit. There are many factors that could contribute to a false charge, including but not limited to the malfunction of the officer’s radar or a problem with the driver’s speedometer. In cases like these, many drivers will plead guilty to exceeding the speed limit and pay the fine, thereby accumulating points against their driver’s license. After so many points in a certain time period, you could have your driver’s license suspended or be required to take a mandatory driving improvement course.
Just because an officer stopped you for speeding doesn’t mean that you are automatically required to plead guilty to the charge and incur the fine. It is often in your best interest to challenge the ticket in court, especially if you have other tickets on your record. At Galumbeck Kegley, we have the skills and expertise necessary to aggressively fight your speeding ticket and advocate for your right to maintain your driver’s license and driving privileges in the State of Virginia.
