I just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that I have completed my first speeding ticket defense eBook which deals with the most basic way to beat a ticket. In my opinion, this is the first place you should start if you want to plan a defense.
Here is how I begin the booklet:
If you want to learn about an interesting way to beat a speeding ticket – even if you actually were speeding – keep reading. This particular strategy will almost always work, but it does depend on one aspect of the circumstances surrounding your ticket. For the strategy to be effective, there must be an issue with the speed limit signs, themselves.
So, let’s assume that the police officer who issued the citation followed all of the standard and established procedures. He …
– legitimately clocked you speeding over the limit
– properly calibrated the speed monitoring device before use
– cited the correct statute on the ticket
– completely filled out the ticket as required by law
None of this matters if the section of your state’s motor vehicle code known as Obedience to Traffic Control Devices was not complied with.

The Basic Speeding Ticket Defense
This is a 9 page review of the most basic way to beat a speeding ticket – even if you actually were speeding. This particular strategy will almost always work, but it does depend on one aspect of the circumstances surrounding your ticket. For the strategy to be effective, there must be an issue with the speed limit signs, themselves. It’s all about the need of states/localities to comply with their “Obedience to Traffic Control Devices” statutes.
Applying the Traffic Ticket Defense Method to Challenge a Citation.
This is a seven-page, detailed explanation of my three-step method for challenging any traffic ticket. I use the “Driving at a Safe Speed” statute from Pennsylvania to illustrate this method, but it can be applied to any other statute that you might be cited for in the vehicle code.
In addition, no matter what state you live in, the procedure is the same: you need to understand the statute you allegedly violated, look for technicalities in that statute and (most importantly) find case law to support/reveal those technicalities.
