How to Beat a Kern Traffic Court Ticket

Kern County Speeding Tickets

The lights are flashing, the siren is blaring and you just handed the traffic officer your license, registration and proof of insurance. All because you were driving over the speed limit. Again! It doesn’t feel great does it? Don’t despair though, getting caught is always a wake-up call but the good news is that fighting a speeding ticket is not too difficult under the right circumstances.

Kern County Red Light Tickets

Fighting a red light ticket may be easier than you’d ever think! But first, you’ll want to make double sure that all of the information reflected on the ticket is actually accurate. Unfortunately, with the rise of fraud and identity theft, there have been some cases of con-artists mailing out falsified tickets. Check your name, address and vehicle information closely for anything that seems missing or incorrect. Once you’re sure it is a legitimate document, you can begin to examine various forms of defense and move forward with contesting a red light ticket.

Kern County Cell Phone Tickets

We all know the feeling. You’re multi-tasking your way through a busy morning and you quickly use your cell phone while you’re behind the wheel of a car. Suddenly highway patrol magically appears out of nowhere, pulls you over and slaps you with a cell phone ticket. As you watch them drive away it’s easy to give in to the despair and just pay up. However, fighting a cell phone ticket is actually a little simpler than you may think, especially if you’ve done a few key things correctly.
