CIVIL TRAFFIC TICKETS
Civil tickets include ordinary civil speeding violations, running a stop sign, improper lane change, and many other similar things. Photo radar tickets for speeding or red light running are civil.
One common way for a person to get a civil ticket dismissed is to take a Defensive Driving Class. A person can take the class once every 12 months. Another option is to set the matter for a hearing and argue the facts of a specific case. Another idea for photo radar cases is to wait to be personally served. You can search on the Internet for a variety of ways to challenge civil traffic tickets. Generally, the cost of hiring an attorney exceeds the cost of a civil ticket so most individuals handle such tickets themselves.
