A GolfR at 17? Speeding ticket advice? Don't speed to impress your friends in the car...
There's a time and place.

Not on a horse here, I'd probably fall off. No hate from me, hate is bad for a person & I'm trying to live a good life. We ALL make mistakes & hopefully we learn from them.

Like I said before, Nick get a lawyer. Going in yourself & playing one is going to do you no good. A lawyer may be able to get you a to work & to school driving privileges. I think that really is the best you can hope for considering you already have a ticket to your name. Good luck & take this lesson to heart.

That sucks for you.. you think you would have valued your privilege of a car after the first suspension since you rely so heavily on it.

Yep.. I got a ticket at 16 and learned.
I didnt need to make it again a year later to get a 6 month suspension to learn.

radar units are to be calibrated before each shift, if the officer cant produce the documentation that it was calibrated to manufacture specifications prior to his shift, as your in court, he will impeach himself in the eyes of the court.

So I was in the same spot as you actually. I'm 23 now but when I was your age I got a ticket for 71 in a 55 when I was sixteen and then a year later got another bullshit ticket for going into a turn lane too soon (pulling into the shoulder before the turn lane actually started.)

First tip, and this one is important, DONT EVER SAY YOU DIDNT DO IT.
Unless you seriously did not do the violation never claim you're innocent. You will lose every time. Best bet is to say yes you did it and request a hearing to explain yourself. That way they can have mercy on you and give you a break.

I remember we had to go to a hearing with the dmv. It was interesting, but the state had nothing to do with it, it was the dmv that would take my license.

Me and my dad went in very polite and professional and explained to the judge that I made a mistake blah blah blah. It's important to stay humble.

Explain that you have a no and or school and that you're very serious about these things. I had been working sense I was 14 so that helped.

Also I was 17 driving a sky blue 2005 Toyota Sienna...not a golf R...so yeah lol.

Serious be careful about pleading not guilty. Where I live if you plead not guilty they will bone you as hard as they can.

It I got clocked doing 127 in a 55 and got away with paying $80 no points... so yeah. I've done well for myself lol

I didn't read the OP nor am I a traffic lawyer but I have watched the occasional legal drama so I feel qualified to offer an opinion here.

Really it's less about the content of your argument and more about the manner in which it's delivered. Wear a suit, that's an obvious sign of success. Casually drop that you moved back several "red team" meetings to squeeze in time for the judge, this will make him feel valued. Point out that it looks like he's lost a little weight.

Make sure during your opening argument to repeatedly gesture towards the low-ranking police officer who pulled you over, take special care to point out his youth and inexperience. If you have any compromising photos of the officer at a something like a donkey show or Nickleback concert, now would a be a good time enter them as evidence of his immaturity or poor music taste. The occasional "Objection! Hearsay!" is a good way to keep the officer nervous and on his heels.

If the judge is wearing a wedding band, make sure to compliment his wife's cooking or choice of window treatments. If he has a particularly masculine mustache, indicate that you're planning to grow a similar one.

Always present your speed's unit of measurement in metric, this bit of subterfuge could add a layer of uncertainty to the officer's testimony. If he contends the speed was recorded in miles per hour, this is a good time to give a dismissive hand gesture and offer the documented precedent that inexperienced radar gun operators are prone to calibrate complex electronic devices incorrectly. Demand the officer's cellphone or personal computer be cross examined, if he has icons just plastered all over his desktop this can be a clear sign of his lack of organization with respect to job tools.

Remember, you're there to "resolve this matter amicably" - not "fight a ticket." The occasional wink and finger pistol softens up even the most curmudgeonly magistrate. Keep offering platitudes about his wisdom and experience with such obvious cases of "gross incompetence and possibly racism..." Let that last word hang ominously, most legal bodies want to shy away from the possibility of unwanted attention from civil rights commissions.

This will probably serve you pretty well, be sure to thank me after your hearing.

Next time, crack the window and tell the office you are a sovereign citizen/being and you do not aknowledge his illegal state and federal laws. It's gotten me off of 3 tickets so far.
