Inquiry: I got a speeding ticket on Saturday but the offence is spelled “SPOODING”.  At first I thought it was just poor handwriting, but there are other instances of double ‘ee’ on the ticket and they are very clear. Will that help me at trial? It’s my first ticket and I’m super stressed.

Response:  The ticket will likely include that you were charged under HTA s.128 indicating that you were charged with speeding.  It is unlikely that the handwriting issue will have any effect on the outcome of the case.  However, we are able to generally argue speeding charges down to lesser offences or in some cases have the charge eliminated outright.  While the penalties tied to speeding offences can cause stress, you can generally limit or avoid the consequences of the charge by having a licenced paralegal argue the matter on your behalf at court.  I would recommend speaking with one of our staff via our toll-free number 1-866-801-8299 for a no-cost initial review of your case.

Best wishes on your case,
