How to Dodge a Speeding Ticket

You know that sinking feeling you get in your stomach when you see the flashing blue lights in your rearview mirror. What now? Well here are some tips to avoid that impending speeding ticket.

From Men’s Health, here are suggestions to get out of that speeding ticket and get by without logging any points on your record:

• Start off right

Pull over as soon as you see the officer’s lights. Turn on your interior light if it is dark out, and have your license and insurance card ready. This will put him in a good mood.

• Do not hem and haw

Officers are lied to so often that it is refreshing when someone just fesses up. Acknowledge where you erred and promise you will be safer. Throw in an apology as well.

• Cop a plea

Now that you have proved your sincerity, ask for a break: “I earned that citation, but would you mind issuing me a warning instead? It will not happen again.” Being direct may work.

• Win in court

If you do get a ticket, consider lawyering up. A good attorney can turn a 6-point “30 mph over” ticket into a 4-point “unsafe lane change” ticket and you will not have to go to court.
