In order to fight a civil ticket, including a speeding ticket issued under Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 90, you must request a hearing through the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) and pay a fee. After requesting the hearing, you will receive a letter to appear in front of a clerk magistrate at the applicable courthouse. If the clerk magistrate does not rule in your favor, you may appeal the decision and the case will be heard by the District Court judge.
At the speeding ticket appeal, commonly refereed to as a “judge appeal,” the officer that issued the citation must be present and the hearing will be held in open court in front of a District Court judge. The judge will first turn to the police officer or Massachusetts State Trooper to recite the facts surrounding the case.
Generally speaking, the officer or Massachusetts State Trooper will assess the speed of the vehicle by estimating the speed and recording the speed by one of the following methods:

Next, you or your lawyer will have an opportunity to cross-examine the police and present a defense to the judge. The judge may then find you responsible, not-responsible, responsible with a fee reduction or may take the case under advisement and issue a decision by mail.
