Questions & Answers

Traffic Law

I just got a speeding ticket, what happens next?

You will get a "must appear" court date from the circuit court clerk or police officer. At that court date, you should appear with an experienced traffic law attorney. You have several options available which are best expained by an attorney. Speeding 20 miles over the limit or more is considered a serious offense, similar to reckless driving, and may result in your driver's license being suspended or revoked for a long time. Your auto insurance may also be dropped if you are convicted of this charge.

What is the point of getting a DUI reduced to a reckless driving?

Getting your DUI reduced to a reckless depends on the facts in your particular arrest. A DUI accident with a high alcohol result (blood alcohol concentration) is very unlikely to be reduced. Most DUIs that are reduced to reckless driving lack the legal proof required of a DUI. The reduced charge sentence may still order you to attend alcohol education and counseling as the DUI.

Defense attorneys can also negotiate with the prosecutor to rescind or dismiss the implied consent statutory suspension on your record. A reckless driving charge is the best alternative to a DUI when negotiating a plea. It's best to consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney to properly advise you of all your options and your chances to beat the case at trial.
