Dress Code: Although there is no official dress code, we highly encourage you dress in formal wear. The judges often frown upon those individuals who come to court in shorts, open-toed sandals, or other such items. 

Security: The court is a secure place, it is advised that all electronics be turned off and all weapons or sharp objects left at home. Upon your arrival, you will be asked to walk through a magnetometer. 

What to Bring: It is advised that you bring your notice to appear from the court. If you are displaced, a court personnel can help navigate you to where you have to be and what you have to do. Drivers should also bring in their driving record. If your record is clean, this can help mitigate your situation.

How will a speeding conviction affect my insurance?

There are many different things insurance companies take into consideration when they determine a driver’s insurance rate.  For the most part, the algorithm used is proprietary in nature and the average driver will not be privy to this information. 

Some things considered in an insurance policy can include but is not limited to a driver’s age, their accident history, the type of car driven, and any convictions to moving violations.

Why did they court not accept my plea of guilty by mail?

It is the court’s right to require a driver to appear in court.  Some circumstance for which they may require a driver to appear can include an unusually high speed or criminal charges being levied against a defendant.

Can’t every speeding ticket be dismissed or resolved with zero points?

Every case is unique. Every court is unique. It is difficult to make a blanket statement with regard the ultimate resolution of a legal matter.
