SEATTLE, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Avvo®, Inc., the web's largest expert-only legal Q&A forum and directory (http://www.avvo.com), today released a set of legal guides, authored by attorneys with subject matter expertise, to explain the legal options available to consumers when confronted with a speeding ticket. The new guides include:

- Remaining Courteous in a Traffic Stop
- Radar Says You Were Speeding... Here's How to Question Its Accuracy
According to the U.S. Highway patrol, 41 million people receive speeding tickets per year in the United States[i], yet just a fraction of people fight their tickets.
"Despite the high success rate in fighting speeding and other traffic tickets, particularly with the help of an experience traffic attorney, drivers paid more than six billion dollars last year in speeding ticket fines, not including what was paid in increased insurance rates," said New York traffic ticket lawyer Matthew Weiss. "It typically costs between $200 to $600 to hire an attorney to fight a speeding ticket with little (or no) time required from the consumer – a small price to pay to maintain a clean driving record and keep one's auto insurance rates low."
