|Speeding tickets are a
relatively new area for us at Dewey Cheatham & Howe. The
consequences used to be fairly minor. In recent years, states and
insurance companies have increasingly viewed speeders as a source of
revenue. Since it now makes financial sense for people to pay our
exorbitant fees, we do too.
The great thing about defending speeding tickets is that it's easy work for us. We go to Traffic Court and hang out with our lawyer buddies. When called, we go into the back room and "persuade" the cop or prosecutor to give you a good deal. You'd be amazed to find out how cheap it is to buy them off. In many cases it only takes a beer or bottle of wine. Some of them are getting smarter and expect us to bring a hot intern with us, but that's still good experience for the intern and we get to watch.
