3. Do not admit that you were speeding
If you do, unfortunately, get stopped for speeding never acknowledge that you were, in fact, speeding. This would give the police evidence to use against you when you contest your ticket in traffic court. Frequently, the officer will ask you, “Are you aware how fast you were going.” This is a trap!! Do not say, “I don’t know” or state a speed over the posted speed limit. In fact, just say, “I don’t think I was speeding” if that is accurate, or be as non-committal as possible if you think you may have been speeding. Even more important to help fight the ticket is that you just get through the meeting with the police as quickly and politely as you possibly can. You don’t want the officer to remember anything about you, except, if anything, that you were polite and followed instructions.
