If you’ve been caught speeding down a New Hampshire highway, you’ll need to contact an attorney who can help you out of your bind.
While this is probably one of the most common infractions that police officers and others in law enforcement deal with day in and day out, when it happens to you, you’ll want to be well informed.
Your first thought _ after a few curse words mumbled under your breath as the officer stops you _ is to pay the fine, even if it’s a hefty one.
But, that may not be your best option. And that’s why you should seek the advice of traffic lawyer Michael Anzalone in Nashua, New Hampshire. It certainly may not be the best option for your bank account or your insurance premium, which may greatly increase due to a speeding ticket.
So, what should you do? Seek the advice of attorney Michael Anzalone, who is ready to help you with this traffic ticket.
He encourages you to read all about the state’s laws on speeding and traffic tickets, which can be found at RSA 265:60. This section covers the rule so the road and it is recommended reading for anyone who drives a motor vehicle in New Hampshire.
In our state, speeding is considered a violation and you can be fined for driving faster than the posted speed on any highway or road. While a speeding ticket is considered a minor violation, it can lead to demerit points being assessed on your driver’s license and additional fines can result in you being labeled as a habitual offender.
So, you want to avoid racking up speeding tickets in New Hampshire.
Still, before you reach for your wallet to pay that fine, think about the consequences. Was the officer who pulled you over properly trained? Did he have certification? What about the radar gun he was using. Was it properly calibrated? Did he have proper training to use it?
These are all questions you should think about. Also, how fast were you going? Were you endangering others or do you feel like you were caught up in a speed trap.
These are all valid reasons to contact an attorney who specializes in traffic tickets. Maybe, just maybe, the officer won’t show up in court when your case comes up. And the charges would then be dropped by a judge.
But perhaps you should think about completing a safe driver program. Upon successful completion, the state would agree to drop the ticket. Of course this still can cost you money, but it can save you in the long run from paying a higher insurance premium.
We realize that these are the kinds of issues that affect your livelihood and we will work hard to get the best possible outcome for you _ even if it’s only for a speeding ticket.
