Can You Get a Ticket for Driving Too Slow?
Yes, in Wisconsin you can receive a traffic citation for driving too slowly. However, according to state law, it is prohibited in the event that traffic is being impeded due to the slow speed. If ticketed for driving too slow, you could receive 2 points on your license for obstructing traffic.
What Happens if You Get a Ticket in Wisconsin?
If you have recently been pulled over and given a citation for speeding, you might be worried about a few things. First, the points on your driving record that could lead to a suspension of your driving privileges. Second, is your insurance premium going to go up?
How to Fight a Traffic Ticket
Many people wonder if it’s possible to get their points reduced even if the police officer has them speeding on radar. The truth is, most clients that come to us are actually guilty of speeding.
In most cases, the court understands that if you’re given a plea deal, it will prevent us from bringing the case to trial. This saves the court resources and lowers your penalties, which is a win for both sides.
Every Case Is Unique
The prosecution will look at a few things when offering a plea deal. This includes what happened in the incident, the driver’s record, and other specifics of the case.
Depending on your case, you might be able to get your ticket reduced to a lesser speeding ticket or a non-moving violation, such as an equipment violation.
Money Back Guarantee
We guarantee point reductions on your speeding ticket or other minor traffic violation. It’s simple: if we’re not able to get a point reduction, we’ll return your original fee. This guarantee does not apply to major traffic violations like reckless driving, hit and runs, overweight tickets, or OWIs.

Why Should I Get My Traffic Citation Reduced?
There are two main reasons you should get your traffic citation amended to a lower charge: (1) to prevent a suspension (with fewer points) and (2) to stop your insurance premium from going up.
I Was Speeding & They Have Me on Radar. Can I Still Get My Points Reduced?
Yes. In fact, most clients our Milwaukee defense lawyers work with were speeding with proof on radar. In most cases, the prosecutor is open to making a plea deal to avoid going to trial. Amending your ticket to a lesser charge saves the court’s resources.
Why Should I Choose Bayer Law Offices?
I have been practicing traffic law in Wisconsin for the past 12 years. Because of my experience in traffic law, I have an excellent understanding of how the process works; this enables me to get the best outcome possible for your traffic citation.
Can a Citation Be Dismissed?
In most cases, the court will amend your ticket to a lesser charge with fewer points but will not dismiss it. Examples of an amended ticket are a lesser speeding ticket if you were speeding far above the speed limit or a non-moving violation, such as an equipment violation.
Do I Need to Go to Court for a Traffic Citation?
No. We’ll handle every aspect of your speeding ticket. All you need to do is send us your citation. Our traffic lawyers in Milwaukee will plead not guilty, request the police’s descriptive of the incident, and negotiate a plea offer at the pre-trial. Then, we’ll send you information on how to pay the amended ticket.
When Do I Pay the Fine?
You do not need to pay the fine until your case is finished. The court normally gives you 60 days after your ticket is amended. We’ll send you all the information you need after your case closes so you can pay your fine.
What Is an Occupational License in Wisconsin?
An occupational license allows certain drivers to maintain driving privileges when their regular license has been revoked or suspended. Not all drivers are eligible for an occupational license, such as drivers who have had a lifetime revocation of their driving privileges.
In Wisconsin, this form of license specifically mandates where and when a driver can go, as well as the type of car they can use. The state’s Department of Transportation details the restrictions provided for this type of license.
What Is a Traffic Citation?
A traffic citation, also referred to as a ticket, are given to drivers by law enforcement when there has been a violation of the state driving laws. The citation received will indicate the violation made and requirements needed to resolve the ticket.
Does Wisconsin Report Traffic Violations to Other States?
Wisconsin is not a part of the Driver’s License Compact which can share traffic violations between states. However, the state does include mandates for out-of-state convictions for charges that may be reason for the suspension or revocation of a license.
