Re: March 'Motor' magazine - Take a speeding fine to court
You can successfully contest a ticket. Personally I would contest my next ticket simply to have experience in a court room and there is a reasonable chance you can get it reduced or be let off and only a slight chance it can get worse. If you are so obviously in the wrong and don't know what to say to the judge then you will look pretty stupid and things may not work out for you.
But there is a defence for almost anything, thats why rich people pay slimey lawyers for.. you can be guilty, plead guilty with a explanation and get off.
You can also delay it, etc. Completely legal tactics, so you can get some points back so you don't lose your licence.
If your not prepaired to defend yourself in court then you will get walked all over..The courts are basically our last resort as citizens, from tyranny.
