Things That Can Be Challenged in a Traffic Law Case

You can challenge the law enforcement officer's personal judgment.
There are cases where you can challenge that the officer made a personal judgment when he gave you the ticket versus going on pure facts. An experienced traffic lawyer in Missouri can go over possible defenses with you so you can see what all your options are.

You can challenge the evidence presented.
The officer will likely have evidence against you to present but you can rebuttal that evidence with solid evidence of your own that can disprove the evidence being presented. Examples can include eyewitness testimonies that can prove your side, photos, drawn diagrams of where the police officer was in accordance with you, etc.

If it's a speeding ticket, you can challenge the accuracy of the radar gun.
Radar guns take proper training in order to be used correctly by the officer. The tuning fork on the radar gun could malfunction. The point here is that there is room for error when it comes to a radar gun and that alone can be challenged in the case of a speeding ticket.

You can prove that there was an emergency if you were speeding.
In some cases, you may choose to speed because of certain emergencies happening, but you can still get pulled over. If you can prove that you had to speed in order to avoid harm, such as an out of control vehicle about to collide into you, then this could be a defense.
