Feeling Generous? Pay Anyone's Speeding Ticket Online

I2m_vacourtscreen As part of a self service egovernment initiative in Virginia, anyone who has any type of traffic (or criminal) charge in one of the many counties across Virginia has the option to log onto https://www.courts.state.va.us to see details of their case and pay a fine rather than go to court.  On the surface, this is a great idea – and most of us certainly wish there were more options to use egovernment services rather than standing in line for bureaucratic nonsense.  The one thing I learned when I went on the site (yes, to pay a speeding ticket) was that the interface for the courts system is designed to allow you to openly search for infractions by obvious parameters such as last name.  The end effect is that I could search for pretty much anyone I know in the area, find their name and if I know their birthdate, get a list of charges filed against them in General District Court.  I know that probably this information is required to be made public … however this seems like gross excess in allowing anyone to see anyone else’s driving infractions.  But since it’s out there, here are a few unintended uses for the site that may pop up:

  1. Online daters can check out someone’s current infraction record before agreeing to go out
  2. Parents can watch tickets their teenagers get, but don’t tell them about
  3. Employers can see infractions for current or potential employees
  4. And the last and most generous … anyone can pay anyone’s speeding ticket online

In a world with HIPAA regulations, many government sites using medieval implementations of  accessibility guidelines, and recent news stories of near leaks of sensitive personal data – some might say it’s nice to see a site where openness and disclosure has won over privacy and security.  Unless a speeding ticket keeps them from getting that dream date online, of course.

  1. Your best chance to beat the ticket is when the officer fails to appear in court. You can cross-examine him if he does show. But, how do i beat a speeding ticket in court? Don’t testify if there is no jury and don’t make an opening statement. Provide as little as possible information until it is your turn to cross-examine the witness. Question the officer about the correct procedure to handle the radar or laser unit, when it was calibrated, about the weather conditions, and traffic flow. Your object is to create reasonable doubt.

    Prepare your case and examine all evidence. Visit the court before the trial date and get a feel for the court procedure. Practice your cross-examination and closing statement. Don’t argue that you were late or had a personal emergency. Object to speculation and hear say. These are just a few pointers on how do i beat a speeding ticket.

  2. Its a dangerous precedent, imagine if you were fighting a ticket, because you were not guilty, then someone paid it on your behalf. Once its paid you cant reverse it and the information goes to your insurance company and you end up losing the points and your insurance increases all due to someone else
