Traffic Violations: Dos and Don'ts
- Don't sign the back of a traffic citation without consulting an attorney. Many traffic offenses carry suspensions in addition to point violations. By signing the guilty line and paying the fine, you may give up your right to your driver's license or concede many points on your driver's license.
- Don't assume that pleading guilty will have no effect on your permanent driving record.
- Do consult an attorney. There is a good chance that you can plead down to avoid or lessen points on your record. This can prevent insurance rate hikes and the potential loss of your driver's license.
- Do respond to your written violation within 10 days. If you don't, you may lose your license.
How We Can Help
- We are often able to convince the police and/or judges to amend a citation so that the offense does not require a driver's license suspension.
- We can often amend a reckless driving charge to a careless driving charge which does not carry a suspension.
- We can often plead a speeding ticket down to a lower speed, avoiding a suspension and, in some instances, points on a driver's license.
