Speeding and reckless driving in Connecticut are against the law. These are both common driving offense that many people face at least once in their lives. Here are the facts that you need to know about tickets for speeding or reckless driving.
You can either plead not guilty, and take your speeding ticket case to court, or you can pay your ticket. When you pay a ticket, it means that you aren’t denying or admitting to the charges. Instead, you plead nolo contendere which means no contest. If you are an out-of-state driver pleading nolo contendere, your home state will be advised of the case.
A judge will determine the fine that you have to pay for a ticket related to this offense.
You can gain points against your driver’s license if you are found guilty of speeding or if you pay the ticket, so we usually suggest that you fight the ticket to at least give yourself a chance of avoiding DMV points.
