So I have had my new Mustang for about 3 months, and I got my first ticket....I have been driving for 6 years, and have never gotten a ticket, until I got a Mustang.....

The cop got me for going 82 in a 70. I thought it was a 75, but the cop still wrote me up.
I want to appeal it since I have heard that the cop won't show up most of the time and the ticket gets dismissed, but if the cop does show up, where does it go from there? Like I said this is my first ticket so I don't know what to do.

Any help or advice will be great! (I live in Texas)

I'm with you, just got pulled over for the first time ever in my cobra. Same as you, 82 in a 65. Pissed me off. I wouldn't even try and fight it man, You're chances of winning are very low. Guess there is nothing to do except pay the ticket and take traffic school... I haul a$$ everywhere anyway, guess it was only a matter of time before i got one.

I used to live in Texas(Harris county). Stick to your plan. It also helps to reset your court date a few times which increases the chance of a no show. If all else fails and he shows up as for deferred adjudication (basically its like parole for 90 days were you can't get "convicted" of another crime and charges get dropped. Or just lawyer up and they will take care of you.

Ok, thanks for all the input guys! I will try to appeal it and hopefully the cop wont show up, or I will turn on the cuteness for the judge and maybe she will lower the charges ;)

It's not. When I was pulled over, the cop gave me a particular judge to see, unless its a guy with a girl name..

I get speeding tickets all the time here in Las Vegas. I bring the ticket to my lawyer and pay him $50.00

He goes to court for me. I do not have traffic school, no points, the fine gets reduced and it does not go to my insurance company. :)

How do you do that? How would I contact a lawyer to do that for me, that sounds great!

Also you have to realize if you plead not guilty and loose in court you will NOT be eligible for traffic school and will get the point(s)... And the fine...

Hey mrkrabz , I'm not sure where you live or if you have traffic ticket lawyers around your area.

This lawyer in Las Vegas I've been going to for six years his name is Craig P. Kenny. He use to do traffic tickets for free the first two years I was going to him. You would have to wait in line to get in, but now they charge $50.00

Any how, here's a link you can check it out.

Ok, so I found a ticket lawyer in my area, I will be calling him tomorrow or on Monday, he doesn't say on the website how much he charges, but I am assuming its less then the ticket or he would be out of business lol.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Yeah if I ever get a ticket I'm going to call one! If you don't mind keeping us updated on how much, how smooth, etc, I'd appreciate it! Just curious. In case I run across a ticket!
