Getting client's speeding in a highway work zone ticket dismissed

I recently represent a client who was driving from Florida to Nashville and was ticketed for speeding in a work zone

Article 9, of Georgia code 40-6-188, Designates that when a section of highway or road is under construction or repair, there should be an erected sign indicating a highway work zone’s beginning and end.  
Also, there is to be a posted sign indicating the reduced speed limit in the highway work zone.
He was ticketed on l-75 for speeding in a highway work zone. 

The speed limit in a work zone will be reduced at least 10 mph or more than the established speed on this road.

Any person convicted of exceeding the speed limit posted in any highway work zone shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and shall be punished by a fine of not less than $100 nor more than $2000, or by imprisonment of a term not to exceed 12 months.

My client who has a good traffic record with no violations within the last five years had been in Florida visiting his elderly mother. 

He stated that the heavy traffic on the highway prevented him from driving any slower, and he had to keep pace with traffic to prevent his vehicle from being hit from the rear. 

I appeared in court and presented my client’s statements to the court. 

Following negotiation with the prosecutor, I was able to get his charge of speeding in a work zone dismissed.

This client is another very happy client of the Alpharetta, Georgia speeding ticket defense attorney Scott Miller.
