Speeding ticket in Bala Cynwyd PA

Speeding. It’s a bad habit too many of us have and like most bad habits, eventually they all catch up with us. Police and residents alike are taking action on speeders in Bala Cynwyd.

Unfortunately, in Bala Cynwyd, a simple speeding ticket can have some pretty intense consequences. In the State of Pennsylvania a speeding ticket automatically comes with two immediate, automatic consequences: 1) You pay. Sometimes, a lot. First you have the intial fie commensurate with the offending violation. Then taxes, surcharges and fees are added and can bring your total to nearly double. 2) It’s going on your record. Each speeding offense is worth anywhere from 1-5 points and those points are assessed to your license in line with the severity of the offense. If you earn 6 or more points over a period of time of 12 months, you’ll earn a suspension of your driver’s license in Bala Cynwyd. On top of those two things, you are likely to see your insurance rates climb.

If you’re unlucky and you wind up with a speeding ticket, you’re in luck because you have several options when it comes to a ticket in Bala Cynwyd The first option is to plead guilty, pay the ticket and incur the points on your record. There are several methods for payment including paying online or in person. Paying a speeding ticket in Bala Cynwyd is an admission of guilt and is entered by the court as a guilty plea.

The second option is to plead not guilty, post collateral, and request a hearing on the matter. At a hearing, you are given an opportunity to contest the ticket and give your side of the story. Maybe you were busted on camera and you contest that isn’t even you driving, you may still suffer the consequences if you don’t seek legal help. What seem like reasonable defenses are plentiful, but few are actually legally sound.
