February 10, 2010 · by rosenblumlawfirm · in

The best way to avoid receiving a speeding ticket is to drive within the speed limit. Officers are less likely to fine you if you are following the law and driving safely.  A safe driver cautiously observes their surroundings and avoids risky driving methods. It is quite understandable that one may lose track of their speed from time to time, but if you want to avoid costly fines and unnecessary hassles, you should definitely keep track of your speed. After all, one speeding ticket can lead to higher insurance premiums and who really wants to pay more than necessary for driver‘s insurance?

Another way to avoid getting a speeding ticket is to drive in a pack. Driving in a pack or staying within a group of cars, makes it harder for police officers to target a driver for speeding. In fact, the driver that leads the pack is easier to spot and will most likely get pulled over for speeding. If you are speeding along with another driver, you should slow down, change lanes and allow the other driver to stay ahead.

An additional way to avoid a speeding ticket is to observant. You should constantly be on the lookout for officers or patrol vehicles. Scan the road for areas where a policeman could hide and check your rear view mirror. If there are trucks on the road, follow their cues. Truck drivers seem to be more aware of police presence.

Other handy methods includes: knowing the traffic laws and rules, keeping your car in good condition, maintain a low key profile, avoid being rude to officers and  never volunteer too much information if an officer pulls you over.

Getting a speeding ticket is a major headache, but at least you know now that it’s a very avoidable situation. Just refrain from having lead foot and follow these simple steps. If you do that, then you can definitely avoid all the woes associated with the speeding ticket.
