Speeding Laws in Texas
Regarding driving over the speed limit, police officers can write you a ticket for traveling 10% above the posted limit. This means if the speed limit is 50 mph and you are traveling at 55 mph, you are speeding and could have points added to your driving record accordingly.
If you choose to fight your ticket, your options include:
- Plead not guilty – This option will require that you notify the correct Texas municipal court to let them know you are contesting the charge. You must then attend a pretrial hearing, and possibly present your case in trial by showing witnesses and evidence to prove your argument
- Traffic school – By attending traffic school, you spend time in commercial driving school either in-person or online to have your points cleared up. This option is only available once within a 12-month period and only if you do not have a Commercial Driver’s License
Exceptions for Fighting a Ticket
There are certain cases where the alleged offense is serious enough that you will not be allowed to attend a traffic school to have a ticket dismissed.
Offenses that cannot be dismissed through a defensive driving course are:
- Speeding 25 mph over the speed limit
- Passing a school bus
- Committing a misdemeanor or felony offense
- Fleeing the scene of an accident
- Speeding in a construction zone
