Is there anything you can do If you were not speeding and got a speeding ticket in Virginia?

Yes, appear in court, the officer who wrote the ticket must apear when you do, if there is no evidencve of speeding IE: radar gun, then you stand a good chance of having the chgarges dropped. Come with a good explanation of how you can demonstrate that you weren't speeding. Many times just appearing is enough, the officer who wrote the ticket will not be able to show up for various reasons and they will have to drop the charge, in other cases the clerk will offer downgraded charges and fines when you go in to set a court date to help keep the judges calendar free for more serious things.

If you've never had a speeding ticket but just got one which added six points to your license how will this affect your insurance?

The cost of your heavy right foot is about to come home and hit you in the bank account. The fact that you "never had a speeding ticket " is irrelevant to the situation you are now facing. Now you do have one, and it sounds like a really costly one at that. Perhaps you need to re-think your attitude towards driving laws, and how expensive it is to break them. Not only will you have to pay a large cash fine, upon conviction in court, but you will CONTINUE to pay for the next few years, in increased insurance costs.

How To Beat Your Speeding Ticket?

If you have gotten a ticket and feel that you have gotten it unfairly, there are ways in which you can beat your speeding ticket. Many people think that they have no choice but to pay once the ticket has been issued. Really, this is not the case. You can take action to get out of having to make the payments. You will have to pay the court fees if you do not win the case, however, so you need to be fairly sure that you were innocent or you will just be adding more costs on top of what you already have to pay. The first way to beat your ticket is just by filing a challenge and then hoping that the police officer does not show up to court. He or she has to come in and testify that you were in fact speeding in order for the charge to hold. It may sound surprising, but many officers are too busy to do this. If you file and they have too much going on, they simply will not show up for the court date. When this happens, your ticket will be thrown out and you will be good to go. You can also write a letter to the officer of ask to meet with him or her in person. You will need to do this after you have gotten the ticket but before you have to pay it, so act quickly. If you go to the officer and talk to him or her about how you do not believe you were speeding, they may still let you off without a ticket. You will not want to communicate with them in an angry fashion, however, but just as a common person seeking to talk intelligently about the situation. Finally, you can fight it. Even if the officer shows up to court, you can hire a lawyer and attempt to prove that you were not speeding. These extreme measures will show the judge that you are serious. Just be sure to follow all of the court regulations and treat the judge with respect, and you can quickly get the law to work on your side. These things sound strange because people never do them, but they really do work. You can save yourself a lot of money if you put a little time into trying to beat your speeding ticket.
