California driver contesting a speeding ticket in West Virginia
April 23, 2014 7:39 PM Subscribe
A person with a California driver's license gets a speeding ticket while driving through West Virginia. The speed alleged on the ticket was 15 miles over the posted limit. What would be the insurance consequences if the driver simply paid off the ticket without contesting it? How could the driver find out more information about whether s/he should contest the ticket, or plead guilty to a lower speed? In what state should the person be looking for a lawyer to best answer her/his questions? What should be this person's next step?
Also, would the answers be different if the alleged speed was 10 (or 9, or 5, or whatever) miles over the posted limit?
