Everyone has the right to fight their ticket in court. If you choose, you can represent yourself. But it is not advisable. It is much wiser to hire a traffic attorney to represent you.
A traffic hearing is less formal than a trial, but it has the same rules of evidence. If you are not experienced, the officers may be able to get in facts that will be unfavorable to your case. When you hire the attorney, it is less likely that will happen. An attorney can also negotiate with the officer to reach a resolution in your case before the hearing.
