If you have been issued a citation, whether it be for speeding,
reckless driving or any other infraction, you need the help of an
experienced Lamont Speeding Ticket Lawyer who can get you the
results you need. Our Attorneys are the best in the business and
have the skills necessary to obtain a dismissal of the charges in many
The Kern County CHP has a reputation for giving out the most
tickets than any other agency in the area. Among the tickets they
write are for VC22348(b), 22350, 22349 and 22356. We defend
speeding ticket citations in the Kern County Court in Lamont. Many
people are unaware of the punishments for speeding tickets, there
can be serious consequences for a traffic violation conviction for
offenses ranging from exceeding the posted limit of 55 mph all the
way to more serious matters such as 100 plus violations which carry
the most severe punishment that includes possible license
suspension, 2 points on DMV report and fines that can total $2500.
In our 25 years of defending speeding tickets we have learned a
thing or two about winning these types of cases in Court. Here are
the top 3 things a person can do to ensure a good result:
1. Make sure you keep track of the deadline to challenge the ticket.
The notice to appear contains the actual Court date that you must
appear on in order to avoid a failure to appear.
2. Do not argue or fight with the CHP officer on the roadway. The
cop can make notes or take steps to ensure you will face a more
difficult case when you or an attorney will show up in Court, so
don't fight with the cop on the street.
3. Take good notes of the details of the citation. The issuing officer
will write notes on the back of the ticket to help him remember the
important facts, you should do the same.
How we differ from "Internet ticket mills" found on the web. First
of all, when you hire our firm you get a real local lawyer to go to
Court for you and fight the citation. The ticket mills will only file a
written declaration for you, that's it. Our Law Firm has been
defending drivers from speeding tickets in Kern County for 25 years.
Attorney Ruff and Alex Griggs know the Judges in the Lamont
Court, he knows the CHP officers involved and he knows how to
get your violation dismissed.
If you are looking for a speeding ticket attorney in Lamont CA you
came to the right place. Our Lawyers fight all tickets, including,
reckless driving and driving on a suspended license (VC14601). We
also handle a good deal of commercial violations for truck drivers
out of the Lamont Court. Downhill truck speed tickets most often
go to this local Court. As local Speeding Ticket Attorneys we can
help, for nearly twenty years the attorney has fought and won all
manner of speeding violations and FTA, failure to appear.
We can go to Court and appear for you. Traffic tickets, speeding
tickets and other traffic related citations are usually heard by a Kern
County Judge in the traffic Court. Since most tickets are infractions,
jail time is usually not an issue. However, the following are
consequences which may occur if you are convicted of, or fail to
satisfy a traffic citation in the Lamont Superior Court:
• A substantial fine and/or court costs (For example the maximum
fine for VC22348b is upwards of $2500).
• Points added to your DMV record
( California only allows 3 points before a suspension commences)
• Probation or potential incarceration
(Reckless Driving, for example, carries potential 90 days jail)
• Driver's license revocation or suspension by the DMV.
• Higher auto insurance premiums.
Tips During a Traffic Stop
If the officer is rude or does something you feel violates your rights
or does something illegal, DO NOT argue or try to engage the officer
on the side of the road. Do this instead, respectfully ask for the
officer's name and badge number. Follow their orders during the
stop. When you get home contact the agency and request to file a
written complaint. All agencies have a protocol for this. Contact an
Attorney right away. DO NOT refuse to sign the citation. Your
signature is just you promising to appear in Court. If you don't you
will likely be arrested. If you are asked to step out of the car, DO
IT. The roadside is no place to litigate the legality of this command
and there is a lot of case law to allow an officer to request this. If
the officer searches you, DO NOT resist. Too many people die
every year because they do not follow this advice. If you object to
the way the officer is behaving, again file a written complaint and
contact our office immediately.

Most tickets can be handled by simply paying the fine through the
mail, however if the Kern County Court is requiring a mandatory
appearance or if pleading guilty will result in the suspension of your
driver's license due to too many points or commercial license or
employment issues it may be best to hire a local Law Firm to appear
for you and attempt to resolve the citation.
Examples of Speeding Offenses We Handle
Basic Speed Law
Driving at a speed that is Not Safe for Conditions, due to weather,
traffic, pedestrians, lighting, road conditions, etc. -- VC 22350
However, the Use of Radar or Laser by a CHP Officer is Illegal -
unless a Valid Engineering and Traffic Survey is on file, which
justifies the "Posted Speed" Limit. Generally, these Traffic Surveys
are inadequate and the cases can be dismissed with the filing of
appropriate legal objections in a Court of law.
Maximum Speed Law -- VC 22349(a) or VC 22356(b)
Driving on Freeway in excess of the Posted Maximum Speed Limit,
i.e., 55, 65 or 70 MPH.
Driving in Excess of 100 MPH -- VC22348(b)
Speeding on a street, freeway or highway in Excess of 100 MPH
Sometimes this violation can form the basis for a reckless driving
charge -- VC 22103 This offense carries 2 points and a potential
license suspension and requires a mandatory appearance. This
speeding offense will also remain on your California driving record
up to twice as long as other 1 point tickets.
Truck Speeding -- VC 22406
Trucks [or vehicles towing a trailer] cannot drive at a speed in excess
55 MPH. Most of these tickets are issued on or around the
Grapevine area by the CHP, particularly around Fort Tejon where
the downgrade becomes very steep. The CHP is well known for
entrapping commercial drivers along this stretch of interstate 5, both
south and north of the central valley. Our speeding ticket lawyers
enjoy a 90 percent success rate in avoiding points for these tickets.
Failure to Appear (Violating written promise to appear)
This offense is a misdemeanor regardless of the underlying reason
for the citation and will result in a bench warrant for arrest. Our
Lamont Speeding ticket attorney can arrange a Court date to get in
and recall bench warrants in all Kern County Courts. We go to
Court, get the hold lifted, get the FTA removed in many cases and
restore your California drivers license.
