Deciding how to Plea

After reviewing the disclosure for your speeding ticket, you need to decide how you will act upon it. How much of a case against you does the prosecutor have? Is the evidence for your speeding ticket conclusive, or are there holes in it that you can point out? How strong is your own defence? These are questions you need to answer for yourself as you decide what to do next for your speeding ticket.

Everything boils down to two choices: you can try bargaining with the prosecutor for a plea or you can proceed with a trial and make your case to the court. 

If you don’t think you can come up with a plausible defence against the evidence accumulated against you for your speeding ticket, you may want to try plea bargaining. Sometimes the prosecutor would rather make a deal with you rather than go to court and run the risk of losing the entire case should the Justice decide in your favour. While it may not be the best possible outcome for your speeding ticket, it may be in your best interest to pursue this if you’re unsure about your chances. There is always a risk in fighting your own speeding ticket, but it is up to you to decide how much of a risk is worth it.
