Speeders Fight Back is a nontraditional court show on TruTV that began airing in the fall of 2008 and is a spin-off of Speeders.

Offending motorists that were shown on the original Speeders show challenge the officers that pulled them over and take their cases to the Oak Lawn, Illinois courthouse in front of Mayor and Judge David Heilman (as of the second season). From there, the said individuals use visual aids, alibis, emotional and offbeat excuses to get out of their traffic tickets. New episodes aired on October 1, 2009.

The first season of Speeders Fight Back took place at the Broward County, Florida courthouse with Chief Magistrate Brenda Di Ioia as the magistrate. The first season of the show is actually real. The Magistrate, the officers, the defendants and the court personnel are all actual. There are no scripts. In fact, the production company taped entire court sessions for 4 months from beginning to end then selected the ones they wanted to air.

The second season with the Mayor was scripted and contained some actors who played part of his court staff.
