Thousands of speeding tickets are issued in Florida every year. Most people pay the fine and and put the matter behind them. However, in certain cases there may be valid reasons for contesting a speeding ticket. If you received a speeding ticket and your excessive speed was validly related to an emergency, or you were exceeding the speed limit to avoid emergency vehicles rapidly changing lanes, you may have grounds for having the ticket dismissed. Other grounds for dismissal include inaccurate radar evidence or law enforcement’s lack of jurisdiction to enforce speeding laws in a given area. If you decide to contest your ticket in Palm Beach County, Florida, you must submit your request online, in writing, or in person within thirty (30) days of receiving the ticket.
Overly cautious drivers should also be aware that it is possible to receive a ticket for driving too slow in a manner that blocks traffic. In Florida, the minimum speed limit on interstate highways is fifty (50) miles per hour.
