Speeding Charge Reduced to Zero Points for a Pittsburgh ManMay 10 2016 in Case Results, Traffic Offenses
A 62-year-old Pittsburgh man was recently pulled over for speeding in a 35 mile per hour zone and charged with going 21 miles over the limit. In Pennsylvania, this is a four-point offense and can significantly increase someone’s insurance rates. The man was worried about the effect this would have on his driving record and insurance premiums so he retained Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC to assess any possible alternatives that may see the speeding charge reduced.
Traffic attorney Matthew Ness discussed the case with the officer and negotiated to have the speeding charge reduced to driving five miles over the speed limit, which does not result in points. After obtaining legal advice from our attorneys, our client saw no increase in his insurance rates and no unwanted points on his record.
