California Speeding Tickets 

If you have been pulled over and ticketed for speeding, it is important that you seek out the proper help right away; and the professionals at will work hard to meet all of your needs. Many people are not aware of this, but the state of California has some of the strictest fines in the entire nation; in fact, it is quite common for ordinary traffic and speeding tickets to exceed $300. On top of that, insurance rates are higher here than the majority of other states, as well  and as we all know; traffic fines and speeding tickets are only going to add to that already high cost. On top of this, you may have to shell out even more cash for a California Traffic Ticket Attorney. You can see how these costs add up, and they can get out of control rather quickly. This is why it is so important to call 866-Speeding right away  we'll work to make sure you understand all of your rights, and we work hard to uphold them in the state of California.

And then of course, there is the old saying, if you can't do the time, don't do the crime; well, in many cases that involve speeding it simply isn't that clear cut. Many times there are speed-traps in place where the speed limit may decrease suddenly and for no reason; and this is usually where the police will be waiting to pull you over for speeding. Other times streets are not clearly marked with a speed limit, and in some cases they are not even marked at all. Again, this is where you have the highest chance of being pulled over and given a speeding ticket.

Sometimes you can get a speeding ticket for failing to brake while coasting down a large hill  and believe it or not, you can even be singled out for just going with the flow of traffic as well. Sometimes your speed may be tracked using a radar gun, but many times it is not and the officer is simply making a guess at your speed. It is important that you are aware of these rights, and it is even more important that you have a competent California Traffic Ticket Attorney who is fully prepared to defend these rights in a court of law; and this means bringing it to trial if necessary.

Of course, many residents in the state of California who are confronted with a speeding ticket opt for traffic school as an easy alternative; but this isn't quite as easy as it seems. Traffic school is tedious and time-consuming as well, and in order for you to attend you may have to take some time off from work in the end this just might not be worth it. With proper legal representation from a qualified California Traffic Ticket Attorney, however, you may even be able to get your traffic school dropped as well.

NEGLIGENT OPERATOR Proceedings -- Vehicle Code section 12810 -- Can cause [a] your driving privilege to be suspended or restricted and/or[b] for the DMV to place you on Probation, which would mean that any traffic ticket or accident after being placed on probation could be a basis of suspending or restricting your driving privilege. If you have either [a] 4-points in a 12-month period, [b] 6-points in a 24-month period or [c] 8-points in a 36 month period on your DMV record, the DMV will deem you a "Negligent Operator".

There are many ways to contest and win these proceedings, including getting 1 or more of your previous convictions set aside.

Traffic Judge
Speeding Tickets

Sherman M. Ellison has been a practicing trial attorney in California for over 44 years. In that regard, he has also been a "Judge Pro Tem", sitting as a Traffic Judge for a number of years. To comport as a traffic judge, Mr. Ellison received the same training to be a traffic judge as permanently sitting traffic judges and traffic commissioners. I have the same Judge's Traffic Manual in my library as do traffic judges/commissioners.

During my tenure as a traffic judge, I had spoken to numerous radar and laser operating police/law enforcement officers. I learned a lot about their use of radar and laser to enforce the speed laws.
