so anyone think its worth a lawyer

so what equals 435 dollars in conroe, going 111 in a 65. Whats the chances i can get this dismissed or atleast reduced. Or if all that fails trying to keep it off my driving record.


1. i think he clocked me wrong, he hit me from the other side of the freeway, i had a passenger, so i was taking it slow.

2. as soon as i saw lights i pulled over( i did see the lights go up on the other side, though about running...but radios might be faster then me.)


3. i tried to explain, that he might of clocked a diffrent bike or car. But state troopers arent to be corrected.:BangHead: (he had me in handcuffs the whole time)

Was thinking of lawyering up, since it isnt houston it might not be worth it :eh:

Go to court,
Take the tongue lashing
Pay the fine
Do it again
Pay the fine
Loose your license
Sounds good to me
Why ask?

I would call a lawyer and ask. At least that way you know. I got one going 91 in a 60 and I got it released.

how fast were you going, you know so why dont you tell.

You are not coming across as someone who was going 65 in a 65 and got accused of going 111, because if you were you would not be asking for advice on a lawyer, you would already have one and your tone would be different.

CALL A LAWYER- NO QUESTION. You dont want that on your record. Like someone else mentioned- Insurance payments will be ridiculous.

Dude, you better lawyer up. No judge in the world is going to listen to any excuses why you might have "needed" to be going 111 mph in a 65 mph zone.

You be lucky if you have a license after this one.

Absolutely true! And guilt has nothing to do with it - IF you have enough money.

111?

You definitely need a lawyer or just show up to court with a jar of vasoline and a toothbrush. (if you need me to explain that, just show up to court without the lawyer, it'll be the same)

Going to court without a lawyer is nothing short of stupid, in your case they're going to be waiting for you to make an example of you to everyone else there. They will be talking about your case waaay before you enter the courtroom and believe me they're going to be talking about it long after you're gone.

Consider the lawyer fees a small investment in your future, you'll learn from the experience. Oh yeah, show up dressed in a suit if you have one and DON'T show up on your bike.

not trying to say i was doing 65, it was more like 85-90 still speeding but it would make a huge diffrence on the fine. There was traffic that was even moving faster then me so, i think thats where the 110 came in.


thanks everyone for your advice, i got a clean record up to this point....anyone know a good lawyer for the conroe area?

They will go anywhere, just pay their travel fees. I had more than 15 cases to go to court on and I walked away with only 1 case deferred. They're worth every penny they earned from me.

See things like this just prove without a doubt that our judicial system is a joke... Obviously the offense you are recieving the ticket for isn't too serious if a lawyer can just wipe it away. I think once you realize traffic tickets/lawyers/judical system is all a game- and just learn to play it well- you stop walking away feeling amazed by the lack of genuine concern of our justice system. It took me a long time to learn- I always honestly believed they were truly interested in right and wrong.

It's about the money. Go to court and plea bargain with the DA if you don't want it on your record. All they want is your money. Lucky for you that you did not get charged with reckless driving with that.
