How to Get a Chatham County, NC, Ticket Dismissed


You’ve heard them all – if the cop isn’t wearing his hat, you can get your ticket dismissed. Or, if he doesn’t show you the speed on the radar gun, the ticket isn’t valid. Myths like these have been passed around for decades, but none of these excuses actually hold up in court.

If you have received a speeding ticket in Chatham County, NC, you are likely wondering if it could be dismissed outright. Chances are that it can’t. However, you may have options, such as a PJC, or possibly a reduction in the speed, which can lower your fines and keep your insurance rates from going up.

When you received the ticket, it should have listed a court date on it. If you do not have an attorney, you need to be at traffic court on that date if you have not paid your ticket online. If you choose to retain a lawyer, she may be able to attend court for you so you don’t have to step foot into the courthouse in Pittsboro.

Contact Attorney Kristi Haddock at (919) 585-1486 for a free consultation on your speeding ticket in Chatham County. She can advise you on whether you would be eligible for a reduction or a PJC to save money, and may go to court for you to save you time.

In most cases, everything can be done by phone or e-mail. Email Kristi at kristi@wileynickel.com for more information.
