She got caught going 83 in a 45. She just got her Florida driver's license three months ago, and has a mandatory court appearance on September 3rd. Any advice or suggestions, or should we just grin and bear it?? I'm not suggesting she wasn't in the wrong, just curious at what we can do to minimum the damage. Thanks in advance. Fire away.

I got a very similar ticket when I was 17. (Not a really long time ago) had to take a defensive driving class. Didn't have to pay anything and didn't go on my insurance. This was a small town in arkansas though. Mine was 91 in a 55.

Holy shit was she late for school?!?!?! Better get a close lawyer to the judge. She may be license less. I couldn't say much either, I had my license exactly 2 weeks and got popped drag racing. Thank goodness that was before drag racing on the street became a felony.

My son got a 73 in a 35...the deal is it's a 4x4 with 37" tires and the Speedo is off plus he was right at where it turns back to 55 mph sign...he knew hewas speeding

Now the problem was it's a crooked county, at the courthouse we had a choice

Set a date to contest
Pay $280+ for 38 over
Or the other offer was pay 140 for 5 over, which I did, and no points against him

Good luck!

LOL I got a 100 in a 30 when I was 17 My dad told his lawyer because I drove his work vehicles. I went to court and got nothing I don't know how he did it but my dad made me pay him 1000 bucks. It was prob cheaper than the ticket and the insurance going up.

Was she texting, too ? Request a trial by jury with the Clerk. The Florida Constitution guarantees a trial by jury Article 1 Section 22. They won't give it to her in Traffic Court . She could win by default.

Unplug speed sensor on said vehicle if you can. Take to a "good ol boy" mechanic to write you a statement saying that the speedo cluster was not working properly...Take said document into court saying that you had it repaired and it was malfunctioning. Also state that your daughter is saving money for college (no joke it helps)

After said case, depending outcome. Kick back a couple hundo to said Mechanic.

I've been through the whole where the sign is thing too. The judge said if you can see the sign and you know what it says. You are good. His old ass also said "when you leave I wana here that flathead scream". Some "good ole boys" are still around down here.

I just knew i was screwed when we showed and there was no judge...:rolleyes: I had to do a double take when she said 5 over lol

It's one of those towns you see someone pulled over every time you roll through:(

When your kid has stupid written on there face you have to defend them.Get a Attorney pay the money to help them look clean as they can until they grow up

Cut up the license yourself and let her face the magistrate. She could have killed herself or someone else.
