Anyone know about ticket fines? Houston guys?

I'm going to court tomorrow to get some tickets dismissed....2 of them I know I can get dismissed.
But, the 1 I got for speeding, was 30 over the limit(75 in a 45).
I know I can't take defensive driving, but do yall think I can get deferred disposition?(or deferred adjudication, is what I used to call it).
I looked online, and I might be eligible, but not sure with mine being 30 over the limit.
Anyone in Houston know?

Nick......................I'm back!!!
May you fly low and fast
rest in peace JL

Request defensive driving. They don't have to let you do it, but they likely will. And stop speeding, Mr. "Take your car to the track and PROVE your point!"

It's only funny until someone gets hurt.
Then it's freaking hilarious.

You can't automatically take it. Many years ago, I got a ticket for 87 in a 55 (LaPorte cop; long story, but I was only doing 70). When I went to the hearing, I just requested DD and they allowed it. I've never done deferred adjudication, so I don't know how that would work.

Just remember, all they want is your money. They don't really care about anything else. Start by requesting DD since it's cheapest for you, and negotiate up to DA (you have to pay the fine for this, right? DA just keeps it off your record?).

It's only funny until someone gets hurt.
Then it's freaking hilarious.

deferred adjudication = Prayer for Judgement in NC it means they'll suspend nailing you for 75 in a 45 for some period of time (a year in NC) provided that you don't get nailed again in that time frame. If you do you're screwed. Then they nail you for that offence and the one that was suspended. Get a good lawyer and see what he says. Lawyers are dirt bags except in traffic court. I had one get me out of a ticket for 95 in a 65 in Tennessee a few years ago. That one cost me $400. But! it saved me about $2,000 in higher insurance rates. Good Luck!

Edit: The trooper cut me a brake and only wrote the ticket for like 85 - I really was running closer to 95. That made a huge difference.

Like I said, ask a lawyer. This forum is the worst place to ask legal advice. Every state is different.

If this ticket is in Houston, you can say goodbye to trying the defensive driving route. They are very strict about how fast you were going and how lenient they will be. The best route for this ticket is deferred adjudification. I should know, I lived in Houston for a little more than half of my life, and have gotten many tickets there.

Well, I went, and asked the clerk if I could do either....she said I need to set a court date to talk with the judge about it.....so in 2-3 weeks I'll get a court date.

When I was younger(16), I got deferred adjudication....back then it was 180 days.

Trust me, I got roughly around 30 tickets in my first 3 years of driving....I was going to defensive driving just about every damn year.

Nick......................I'm back!!!

Wow! You ought to be an expert at this by now. We should be asking you for advice not the other way around.

Anyway good luck fighting this in two weeks. Let us know if you're able to cut a deal.

Alot has changed since then. I know Pasadena and Houston have 90 for deferred now. And you cant take more then 2 defensive driving courses within 5 years if im right. Before I had my liscence I got a bunch of tickets for spinning the tires and racing. But if you have no liscence you have no driving record! So mine is squeaky clean now.

A judge can allow you to take dd even tho you've already taken one, good luck with that tho. I've seen it a couple of times myself but it was always some hot (playin dumb) chick. Unless the judge is gay, good luck. 75 in a 45 I'd say your screwed tho, no mater what sop story you come up with the judge will always fall back on how fast your were going, unless you had an emergency like your mom was run over and you needed to get to the hospital. I'd ask for defered, you do know that the price of defered if you go before a judge is alway the price of the fine. If you get one of those lawers that do traffic tickets all the time sometimes well most of the time its less.
