They know things you don't by a LOT, and they also probably know the prosecutor, which will help tons.

Be aware that some judges like to make examples of the people who serve. Last fireman I saw in court got the max and a good lecture about safety and how he should know better. Of course, this guy showed up in his dress uniform so the judge hit him with the, "what kind of example are you setting standing here as a defendant in the uniform that is supposed to represent the finest of our community..." FWIW

An attorney always makes sense. That or work something out with the prosecutor well in advance. The folks who do well in speeding trials are the ones with an attorney or the ones who admit their fault and plea for a lesser punishment due to various reasons like effect on job, money hardship, etc.

As for what to bring: A list of questions you would like to ask and any evidence you have to support your side of the events, pen and paper to take notes during testimony.

God is on my side fellas..

They reduced it to a parking ticket ($75) and NO points...and I didn't even have an attorney.

I think I got on their good side because upon walking into the village hall, I found $200 on the floor, I gave it to the cop and went on my way. Later, the guy who lost the $200 came back and claimed it. The judge said "Since you did such a good deed, we'll give you a parking ticket" and that was that!!

So happy I don't have 6 points to go on my license to jack up my insurance.
