Florida Company Fights Your Traffic Tickets For A Fee

July 11, 2017

Every once in a while your mind lapses and you exceed the posted speed limit.  That can lead to a pricey speeding ticket, with the average fine of $150 and points off your license.  An unexpected fine can strain an already tight budget and the risks of fighting it in court can be intimidating.  It probably why 95% of people just pay the fine and hope their insurance rates don't go up.  But the chances of having your ticket dismissed in court are better than you'd think.  It's why a Miami company has created TIKD, a mobile web app that is dedicated to helping you fight your speeding ticket.  It's not a law firm but a company that plays the odds that they can get your ticket dismissed for less money than the fine itself.  So you get a speeding ticket in Orlando that has a $100 fine.  Just upload a picture of the tickets, where you got it and the fine. TIKD takes it from there and after paying a one-time fee that is less than the fine, they'll hire a lawyer to go to court for you and they accept all liability.  The company says they have an 85% success rate due to clerical errors, the issuing officer not appearing in court and other technical mishaps that result in your ticket being dismissed.  However if they cannot get your ticket dismissed, they pay the fine in full and even refund your payment for service if points are assessed.  And if you indeed have to pay the fine, or just don't want to take the ticket to court, they offer a payment service, where they'll immediately pay your fine and you re-pay them over time (for a service fee).  TIKD says they only accept tickets for minor traffic infractions and not major citations such as reckless driving or DUI and for now, the service is only available for tickets issued Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, Miami and their surrounding counties. Florida counties include, Brevard, Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Lake, Manatee, Miami-Dade, Orange, Osceola, Pasco, Pinellas, Sarasota, Seminole and Volusia.
