Speeding tickets are probably the most common violation in the traffic tribunal. What I would suggest to anyone who comes to me with a speeding ticket is that I have to see that ticket. Was it a radar ticket? Was it clocked? It’s great in the traffic tribunal to be able to utilize the discovery process to ask for the departments whoever may have charged you for the information on the radar, on the qualifications, how they clocked, their experience, etc. These are tools that should be used by all lawyers and it’s something we use faithfully at the traffic tribunal. If we have to try those cases, we try those cases but we want to get all the information on a plain speeding ticket summons to do what’s best for our client, a motorist.
