Traffic Tickets Can Cost You More Than Just Money

We have all had that sinking feeling when you look in your rear view mirror and see flashing lights...just the thing to take a good day and send it down the drain. Most of the time a traffic ticket is a mere inconvenience and a chance to tell your friends later that "everyone else was speeding too!" But sometimes, depending on the charge, a ticket can cause real trouble. Your insurance rates could go up and points may be added to your driving record, bringing you closer to more serious consequences like losing your drivers license.

A speeding ticket of 10 miles per hour and under will not go on your record and so should not affect your insurance rates, but anything over that will. Even a seemingly small charge like a ticket for "not clearing an intersection on a yellow light" is eligible to go on your permanent record.

After some time has passed, you may be eligible for an expungement to try to remove these charges from your record. But the best way to handle these matters is to deal with them at the beginning. Different cities and counties handle citations differently. Most will not negotiate unless you are represented.

Our attorneys will spend the time and effort to try to make sure traffic charges do not go on your record in the first place. Each attorney here has extensive experience in handling traffic citations in towns large and small all over the state.

If you are cited, contact us to see if you can avoid the time and hassle a traffic ticket causes. You may even save some money and protect your driving record.
