You’re driving five miles over the speed limit when you notice blue flashing lights coming up from behind. A police officer pulls you over and gives you a speeding ticket. You can either suck it up and pay the ticket, like most people do, or go to court and contest it. Luckily, there’s an app that lets you contest your ticket without ever having to leave your home.

Off the Record is an iPhone and web app with an average success rate of 97%, according to GeekWire. To use the app, users take a photo of their ticket, answer a few short questions, and pay a fee. The fee ranges from $59 to $599, depending on your state and county. The app then assigns the case to a lawyer nearby to contest it for the user. The attorneys are vetted to be on the app based on their success rates in courts. Users can message and receive updates from their lawyers through the app without having to meet their attorney in person or show up to court.
