Speeding Ticket Attorney in Hartford

Defense Lawyer for Civil and Criminal Traffic Offenses in Hartford

If you received a ticket for a traffic offense, it will likely be categorized as either an infraction or a violation. An infraction results in a fine and can be handled via mail or online. A violation may require a court appearance. If you do not pay the ticket or appear in court, however, you may be charged with a misdemeanor criminal offense.

The team at Carlson & Dumeer, LLC is experienced in defending a variety of traffic offenses so you can be sure we know how to approach your case. Don't let a speeding ticket drive up your car insurance premiums or result in driver's license suspension. Our seasoned criminal defense lawyers have been able to help countless clients avoid severe penalties or even get their case dismissed altogether.

How Are Penalties Assessed for Speeding Tickets?

The penalties you will face for speeding depend on the specific circumstances of the offense. For example, driving 20 mph above the speed limit will result in higher fines than driving at 5 mph over the limit. If you were accused of speeding in a school or construction zone, you will face a steeper fine. Commercial truck drivers will be penalized more severely than drivers of passenger cars. A speeding ticket will result in much higher penalties if you are also charged with concurrent violations, such as:

  • Driving without a valid license or registration.
  • Failing to properly signal.
  • Failing to wear a seatbelt.
  • Running through a red light or stop sign.
  • Unsafe passing.
  • Using a mobile device while driving.
