Speeding Ticket Reduced to Avoid a PennDOT Hearing

Feb 17 2017, by Michael Fienman in Case Results, Traffic Defense

Some time ago, a man was stopped by the Pennsylvania State Police and ticketed for going 31 miles over the limit. If convicted, this speeding citation would result in the addition of five points on his license and the possible loss of his driving privileges after an administrative hearing with PennDOT. This was justifiably a very unattractive prospect for him and he wanted to evaluate any alternatives with a knowledgeable Pennsylvania traffic attorney from Fienman Defense.

Attorney Michael Fienman reviewed the man’s driving record as well as his current speeding citation. He utilized all of this information and his considerable experience in traffic court to negotiate a more favorable resolution. Attorney Fienaman achieved a radical reduction to the offense, where his client agreed to plead to a zero-point violation that would not require a PennDOT hearing. This arrangement allowed his client to pay a small fine, but he wouldn’t have any points added to his record, nor would he run the risk of a license suspension.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
