What is Excessive Speeding and What Happens When I Get an Excessive Speeding Ticket?
When you get an excessive speeding ticket in the state of Hawaii, you've probably already learned that you cannot just write a check and mail it in and send it off like any other ticket. Excessive speeding tickets come with any number of penalties that come with the case. It comes with a fine between five hundred thousand dollars. It comes with a number of other fines attached to it. A license suspension, there's a class you have to take, and then, the big pig with this case is it's either jail or community service. It's one or the other. You have to take one or the other if you're convicted of excessive speeding.
Now, when you do get a charge with excessive speeding, there are a couple of different things we factor. Have you ever had a speeding ticket before, how fast were you going, what was the speed limit on the street, and then, of course, how did they catch you? Did he catch you with a laser, a radar, or did he try and pace your car? Did they follow with the police car, your car? A certain amount of speed? What we do is, look at all these things, and work them out. We try, generally, to work with the prosecutor to get you an ordinary speeding ticket. An ordinary speeding ticket may affect your insurance but it won't affect your insurance so badly as an excessive speeding case.
We've been very successful with this for any number of speeds going up to over 100 miles per hour, and we do it with the threat that if we have to go to trial on the case, then we're more than prepared to do that. That's something we're able to do. If you have received an excessive speeding ticket, you probably qualify.
