The National Motorists Association advises everyone to use all the legal measures they can before paying traffic citations. “If you give the court the impression that you are serious about fighting the ticket,” said communications director John Bowman, “you are going to have a lot more leverage and control over the process.”
The fact is that Polk County’s traffic court, just like any other, has limited finances and staff; it could never take all cases to trial. Simply appearing in court can be influential since no one wants your case to be difficult.
See our additional speeding ticket FAQ pages for more ideas on how to fight, beat, and get out of traffic fines. It is also a strong option to speak with one of our Polk County traffic citation attorneys.
