What Should You Do if You’re Caught Speeding in Your Nissan Juke?
It can happen to anyone at any time, due to inattention or perhaps because of a need to make up time. We’re talking about speeding in your new Nissan Juke or other car and being caught by the Police. That sickening sinking feeling is hard to forget when you see those blue lights, and then an officer walks up to your window. Many people say and do the wrong thing from this point on, so here is some better advice on how to proceed.
You May Beat the Fine:
Many drivers assume that once they are caught speeding, they will inevitably have to pay a fine. This is incorrect, the potential payment of the fine is not a forgone conclusion, and you need to proceed under that assumption. Channel 7 in Sydney obtained figures in 2015 that showed that one in every four drivers overturned their fines. This saved drivers in NSW over $4 million in penalties that they would have otherwise paid.
Trying Out a Charm Offensive:
Police officers spend a great deal of their day dealing with drivers, and they have heard every lame excuse. Offering up elaborate stories is a sure way to get the ticket in the first place, so don’t bother trying. The best possible outcome for the driver is to get off with a warning and avoid a ticket altogether. Remember, the Police have discretionary powers and a wide latitude for dealing with the public. The method of interaction is crucial, be polite, don’t make silly excuses and be the best version of yourself. Inevitably, your driving details will be checked, so be sure to mention an exemplary driving record if you have one. If you’re lucky, you may just receive a warning, which you should accept with good grace and then move on with the rest of your day.
Drivers With a Sketchy Driving History:
If you’re a driver with a poor driving history, any attempt to use the charm offensive is going to fail as soon as the Police officer checks your record on the computer. There is no need to be rude or invasive, but it’s a good idea to simply deny everything. This is the best way to initiate a strategy where there could be some doubt introduced regarding the offence. Admitting any kind of guilt will equate to a harder time later trying to challenge the fine that has been issued. If you want to challenge the fine, you will need to seek legal advice and follow it carefully.
