If you have chosen to fight your speeding ticket in court, then youll need to know the basics of how to act while youre in court. With this in mind, Ive prepared for you some basics of how to behave in court.

Here they are:

Make sure you are well dressed. If you are dressed inappropriately, it will be seen as an insult to the courtand this is NOT going to help your case.

ALWAYS be polite and courteous to everyone there. This includes the judge, the prosecutor, and the police officer. Also, remember that these people know each other very well. Always be nice to these people.

The idea of innocent until proven guilty is for the movies. It doesnt work like this in real life. Remember the only thing separating you and a conviction is evidence.

If you admit to anything in the court room, the charge against you can be changed at a moments notice. You can be found guilty if it comes from your own mouth. If anyone in the court room (judge, magistrate or prosecutor) asks you anything whatsoever about the ticket, be courteousand say you would prefer not to testify against yourself.

Remember that the proof required in criminal cases is beyond reasonable count. The key word in all of this is reasonable. If you dont challenge the evidence, it will be presumed reasonable by everyone in the court room.

Remember that you are being charged for a specific speed. Not just for driving fast. The prosecution will try to show evidence that you were driving a specific amount over the limit, not that you were simply driving fast.

You do not need to try and prove your innocence. You simply need to prove that the prosecutions evidence is either unreliable, or is inadmissible. This is an important distinction which you need to keep in mind.
