Roadside Reductions

FAQ-Cropped-Edited 2What is a “Roadside Reduction”?

In some cases, a police officer that stops someone for speeding will record a speed on the ticket that was less than what their radar equipment actually “clocked” the person at. This is an attempt to discourage people from fighting their tickets, and the officer will sometimes even tell the driver that the recorded speed could “go back up” if they fight it. This is practically never the case if the matter is properly handled.

If the Police Officer already reduced my speeding ticket at roadside, can I still fight it?

Yes. There are still plenty of opportunities to have the charge either withdrawn, dismissed, or an even further reduction.
