Speeding Ticket Stories

Updated on March 4, 2013

Speeding Tickets

Speeding tickets. What's the first thing you think when you read those two little words? If you're like most people, then chances are that you just spewed some un-printable phrases or hurled something at the nearest wall.

We all have bad experiences with speeding tickets. No matter how safely you drive, sometimes you just need to speed to get somewhere fast, whether you've got a real emergency or if you're just running late. Or maybe you didn't notice that the speed limit was a little lower than in most neighborhoods, and you got busted. Maybe you were spacing out, enjoying the view, and just lost sight of your speedometer for a few seconds. Maybe you weren't even speeding, and got busted by a cop who needed to meet his monthly quota. Regardless of your specific circumstances, what do you remember feeling when you got stuck with the ticket? Do you remember thinking "Well, I was speeding, so I deserve to pay this fine and accept the consequences of my actions"? Probably not

The fact is, unless you're a chronic speeder who neglects the law and the safety of others, you didn't deserve the hefty fine that you were forced to pay. You probably thought "I'm a law-abiding, decent member of society who had the need to go exceed the limit for just a few minutes or made a silly mistake. Money is too tight for me to pay so egregiously for my small offense!"

The Speeding Ticket Myth

Think about what you know regarding speeding tickets. When was the first time that you ever heard of them? Maybe you were in your car with your parents when they got pulled over. Maybe you were taught them in kindergarten or in grade school. Maybe a local friendly police officer came to your school to deliver a lecture about not speeding. What do you remember learning? SPEEDING IS BAD!

Now, try and remember back to those days right before you got your license. Do you remember going through a Driver's Ed class from your high school? Did you take a class from a local DMV or read a manual? What did they tell you? SPEEDING IS BAD! Think about the last time you received a speeding ticket. Did the officer lecture you? Did the judge scold you? Did the insurance company raise your rates? What information does this reinforce? SPEEDING IS BAD! We are conditioned to think that speeding is unlawful and unethical from a very early age, and this knowledge is constantly reinforced throughout our lives. Two questions immediately come to mind:

The Cost of Tickets

Since the global economic collapse, the average American is struggling to make ends meet. Unemployment is near ten percent, and foreclosures are on the rise. It's never been more important to save money in every little way that we can. Are you aware of how badly a speeding ticket can set you back in this process? The average cost of a speeding ticket today is almost Four Hundred and Fifty Dollars! And the sad part is that's just the cost of the ticket. You will need to add the increase in your insurance premiums to that amount as well. So, let's say you pay $1600 per year for your insurance, and your rate takes a 25% hike after the ticket. This will increase the total cost of your ticket to $850. You can lose sight of your speedometer, harmlessly go a little faster than the posted limit, and suddenly find yourself $850 in the hole. Let's take a minute to think about what that money could have been spent on instead of needlessly paying your ticket. You could have put yourself and your family up in a hotel room for over a week

-You could have paid for two plane tickets to almost anywhere in the world

-You could have upgraded your car with a new sound system or paint job

-You could have bought groceries for well over two months

-You could have invested it in the stock market.

-You could have bought a new TV or paid the cable bill for up to a year

-You could have paid off part of your credit card debt

And so on. I'm sure you can think of literally thousands of things you would rather have spent your money on than paying that speeding fine. So why pay it? Later in this text, I'll show you a way to get around the system that the courts desperately don't want you to know.

Avoiding Tickets

It's inevitable that you'll be pulled over for speeding and ticketed at least a few times in your life. After all, that's why I developed this system!

After getting pulled over a couple times, however, you can start to get sick of it. Even though my system can get your case dismissed with ease, it's still a huge hassle to have to report to the courthouse, wait for your name to be called from the docket (which can be hours and hours) and miss valuable work or family time. In my experience, the best way to never pay a speeding ticket again is to never get pulled over in the first place. It's something that I trained myself to do after my first four or five tickets, and I've only had one since.

I've got some good news. As part of my definitive work on how to stop paying speeding fines, I've included some easy tips in this chapter to avoid the police and speed traps when it's absolutely necessary that you put on the gas. After all, our lives are filled with emergencies and reasons to rush, and sometimes it's just the only way. Following these tips will make you a "careful speeder", insuring that you aren't driving dangerously or making yourself vulnerable to radar attention.

Radar Detectors

Many people who often find themselves in a rush invest in radar detection equipment. This technology sends out a signal beam of its own that detects the presence of police radar activity.

Read the Road

1. Pay Attention to Other Drivers: Study the road ahead of you.

2. Watch for Friendly Signals: Look at the cars travelling in the other direction.

3. Guess their Hiding Spots: Ask yourself this question:

4. Study the Median:

5. Use a Decoy

6. Know your Area:

7. Know the Schedule:

Why does My Sistem Work?

It may seem incredible or absurd to you that there's an easy system that enables you to beat speeding tickets, even if you were actually guilty.

"How is it that this system exists? How come I haven't heard of it? Why don't more people use it?" you may ask yourself. The reason this system works, and the reason people don't know about it, relates to the nature of our legal system

The Systemic Glut of Courts -

Our court system is based on innocence until further proof of guilt

Because people don't challenge it. -

This system is constructed in such a way that it encourages people to blindly put a check in the mail or plead guilty to the charges and pay up

The Principles of Speeding Evidence -

If you've been caught speeding, chances are that the arresting officer logged your speed either through his or her own speedometer or through the use of a radar gun system. While both systems are likely to be accurate, it can be difficult to fully prove that these systems work on a case-by-case basis, within a court of law, beyond a reasonable doubt.

THE SYSTEM

So you've got a ticket and you don't want to pay it. You aren't a dangerous driver or a criminal, and you can't afford to have your insurance hiked or to get any points on your license. You don't want spend money on a ticket lawyer, and your perfectly good excuse for speeding simply won't work in court. What do you do?

You need to carefully follow every step in order to maximize your effectiveness and increase your chances of walking out of the courtroom with a smile on your face, so feel free to print this chapter and consult it as a reference, especially on trial day.
