Traffic Tickets

Traffic tickets may not seem like a big deal--you pay them and they go away. 

 

But that's not true.  They don't just go away.

 

Paying a ticket means you're pleading guilty and taking a conviction on your record.  It's true these convictions aren't the same as criminal convictions, at least in most cases, but they can result in points on your driving record and often increased insurance premiums for as long as the points are on your record (don't believe me?  check out this research from nerdwallet). 

 

And as a quick side note, if you get more than five points on your record from any state within three years, then you'll be facing increased fines and possibly suspension of your license for any new traffic tickets.

What You Need To Know:

  • A traffic ticket is NOT a conviction, it's an accusation  

  • You have options that often don't include accepting a conviction

  • In most cases you won't have to go to court

What ELSE you need to know:

  • $$$ --> Hiring a lawyer for a traffic ticket isn't as expensive as you think

  • If you can afford to pay your traffic ticket then you probably can afford a traffic ticket attorney. 

Things get even more serious if you have a CDL (Commercial Drivers License).  If you have a CDL then you know just how important it is to keep points off your record.  Your livelihood depends on it.
