As a Washington State Traffic Ticket Attorney, I spend the majority of my days fighting Speeding Tickets in Court. Most drivers today don’t believe there are legitimate reasons a speeding ticket can be dismissed. The truth is there are successful ways and reasons a speeding ticket can be dismissed. Unfortunately, when drivers decide to fight/contest their speeding ticket (without a traffic ticket attorney), many use the same unsuccessful arguments in court.
One of the most common reasons a speeding ticket can be dismissed is based on an evidentiary technicality. These technicalities revolve around the admissibility of the result of the speed measuring device (SMD). The SMD is the device that police officers use to measure your speed. In laymen terms, traffic ticket lawyers (like myself), are making sure that the police officer dotted all the I’s and crossed all the T’s. Otherwise, we argue that the Judge should exclude the result of the SMD at the client’s hearing because it is unreliable.
So if you have decided to fight your speeding ticket without an attorney and are looking for reasons a speeding can be dismissed.
