Tulsa Attorney BlogTulsa’s Cracking Down on “Aggravated Speeding”

Follow the Traffic Laws

Video Transcribed: Tulsa’s cracking down on aggravated speeding. I’m an attorney in Tulsa, James Wirth and I can tell you that the prosecutors in Tulsa Municipal Court are cracking down on aggravated speeding. And under the municipal code, aggravated speeding means more than 20 miles per hour over the posted speed limit, anything greater than 20 over. So that’s pretty quick, but historically that’s been handled kind of like just a speeding ticket, but maybe a little bit more.

But now we’re getting a lot of pushback where they are wanting to push these hard and the standard recommendation for a plea deal with a prosecutor in Tulsa Municipal Court on aggravated speeding now includes jail time. And that’s why we’re getting so many calls because people are going down to the court, judge is suggesting they’re going to need an attorney on this because it has the potential of jail time and the prosecutors are telling them they want them to do time on it.

So we’re seeing a lot of those, but if you’re in those circumstances, there are things that can be done. Every case is unique. Every case has its own mitigation and defenses. And you’re going to want to talk to an attorney about your specifics to see if you need representation on that, to know what options you have, and to know how it may affect your driving record.

Because in Oklahoma, points on your driver’s license for speeding, depending on how far over the speed limit you’re going or you’re convicted of going, could be anywhere from zero points to four points. So, this is just to let you know that they are cracking down on speeding. Be careful out there.

You want to see if you can follow those traffic laws. If you get cited with going more than 20 over in Tulsa Municipal Court, you’re probably going to want to talk to an attorney about that. If you’re facing those circumstances, and you need to speak with a Tulsa Traffic Ticket attorney, you’re going to want a confidential consultation with an attorney in Oklahoma.
