If you were issued a speeding ticket for going over 100 mph in Kern
County here is what you are facing if convicted: 1. A fine of as much as
2500 ($500 base plus penalties and assessments) 2. A 30 day suspension
of your drivers license. 3. 2 points on your DMV record for 7 years.
Speeding tickets in California can range from the benign to very serious
depending on the circumstances. The good news is that unless you are a
commercial driver or the speed is greater than 20 mph, you can usually
attend traffic school to get the citation dismissed and the points removed.
Bakersfield attorney Bruce Blythe has been fighting traffic violations for
20 years. The most severe are the over 100 tickets because they carry
stiff penalties if you are adjudicated guilty in Court. Here is one recent
online review received from a client we represented:
"I hired Bruce to extricate me as best as possible from a nightmare - a
speeding ticket alleging I was driving at 104mph - and he delivered a
miracle. I was consigned in my mind to having to pay a penalty, get
points on my record, and deal with issues with my insurer, believing
justice wouldn't be done, and that a CHP officer's mistaken assessment
would be credited by the court. Not so. Bruce achieved a complete
dismissal, and did so without my having to think about or spend any
time on the matter. I recommend him and his team 100,000% for any
matter. He is the real deal, and has my marker for life for his
professionalism, integrity, and ability to deliver the goods."
Most citizens do not understand the ticket process so here is a quick
primer on how the system works. First, the citing officer issues the
violation and requires the driver to sign the bottom of the ticket, why?
Well, it is simply your promise to appear on a certain date to either
contest the citation or plead guilty or no contest and resolve it. If you fail
to show up a hold is laced on your license until you clear the ticket in
Court. What if I show up and the cop is not there? He won't be, the
reason is because the first date is the "arraignment" which is the legal
word for entering a plea. If you plead not guilty then a second Court
appearance is required, this is called a trial. At this point the officer must
appear and testify or the case will be dismissed. Unfortunately, once the
case gets to this stage a Judge may deny your opportunity to take traffic
school if you are otherwise eligible. However, another option is to hire a
local attorney, such as Bruce Blythe to fight the ticket for you and relieve
you of the stress and worry associated with the process.
Being issued a speeding ticket can result in enormous increases in your
auto insurance premiums, add points to your DMV record and possible
suspension of your driver's license. Most citations involving excessive
speed have potential defenses that can be utilized to obtain an acquittal or
dismissal in traffic Court. Bakersfield Speeding Ticket Lawyer, Bruce
Blythe has 20 years experience fighting and winning cases for his clients.

There are 3 big reasons to hire Bruce to fight your citation: 1. When you
retain our firm you get a real attorney handling your case. Bruce goes to
Court personally for you and sets the case for trial and later appears at
trial to try and resolve the case. Most other ticket clinics will only do a
trial by declaration which in many cases is a waste of time. 2. Bruce has
the highest success rate among most firms, in some cases well above 90
percent. 3. There are NO HIDDEN FEES. Bruce quotes you a fee and
handles the case all the way through until there is a resolution.
If a law enforcement officer ticketed you for driving over 100 you could
be facing a mandatory suspension of your license in Court and be
penalized with 2 points on your DMV record, the same as DUI or
reckless driving. Fighting a speeding citation takes experience and
knowledge of the local Judges and judicial system. If you hire a "clinic"
or Internet mill firm to defend you could be stuck with a conviction on
your record and the higher insurance costs associated with a bad record.
