You should see how much a previous no insurance ticket will cost you.
Most attorneys don't do that unless they have no pull in that courtroom and if they do that it was a last resort. The way they do it is by coming to an agreement with the prosecutor, ex. he'll pay this but you take this off. Most of the time you are going to get off with a full dismissal unless its just not your lucky day.

Yeah that applies for HPD not for State Troopers, I found this out when the officer didn't show up the first time for court in Clear Lake

They also subpoena the traffic study for that road, or reset, reset, and reset again until it's dismissed.

(Did this today as a matter of fact.)

Most of the time it just depends on the ticket but, most places are $60 if you know some one you can get it for cheaper or if you are like me Frequent Flyer you just get multiple dicount. You know you have had alot of tickets when the officers know you by name with out even looking you up. sorry its not funny

When I got stopped by HPD for speeding, the cop let me know that as of recently, anything over 95mph is NOT eligable for defensive driving. He also kindly let me know that I was well over that mark, then let me go with a warning.

Thats luck, I heard that after 24mph it is up to the officer if he wants to take you in for wreckless driving. (this is what a sheriff told me)

Lawyers are a waste of money in traffic court. They come to us begging to work out a deal for their clients and then when we do work something it appears to be magic to the violator. Traffic court is about knowing how to play a big game, and the people who are getting these tickets are the ones who are losing out. Its amazing how people say how good their attorney is and they never go to trial.

If you want DD or DA then just do it yourself. Did the officer give you the application with the ticket?

I don't think that there is a hard and fast rule about what exact speed constitutes wreckless driving. I'm sure you could be doing 1 mph over and you could still pull WD.

I'm pretty sure it's a judgement call that is made by the officer.

(I do know that a DPS trooper once said that they couldn't write someone up for speeding at anything above 120 mph [on the ticket] or they would have no excuse but to take them to jail)
