Many drivers underestimate the serious consequences of paying a traffic ticket. Paying the ticket means admitting guilt and accepting the consequences. For violations such as speeding, texting while driving, unsafe lane change, failure to obey a traffic control device, etc., this can mean hefty fines and driver’s license points. That’s only the beginning. Traffic tickets can also lead to other consequences, such as:
- Suspended license. Drivers who reach 11 points on their license can find their license or NY driving privileges suspended. The same can happen to drivers who are convicted of speeding three times (or twice in a construction zone) within 18 months.
- Auto insurance increases. Every moving violation that ends up on one’s driving record can cause a hike in insurance rates. This can result in paying hundreds of dollars every year for three or more years.
- Jail time. Most traffic violations carry the potential for jail time (albeit unlikely). Crimes committed behind the wheel can have life-changing consequences, including jail time and a permanent criminal record. This is case for charges such as Aggravated Unlicensed Operation (driving while suspended), DWI/DUI, and reckless driving.
How Can An Attorney Help You?
Many drivers think they will end up with a good result if they fight a traffic ticket on their own. While this might be true, there is also a ton of information out there from so-called “self-help” websites claim to offer tricks to getting a dismissal. Don’t fall for it! Most of the time these tricks don’t work. Those who attempt them will only waste their time and will end up getting convicted anyway.
Those who challenge a traffic ticket will have to face off against an officer or prosecutor whose sole job is to get convictions. They, and the judges who oversee the cases, are experts at asking questions, uncovering details, and sniffing out what they perceive to be untruths.
Bottom line: The odds are overwhelming that a driver will lose and get convicted. Not to mention the fact that he/she might have to sit in court for hours until the case is heard. Worse, if the officer does not show up, the judge may order the driver to come back a second or third time.
For all of these reasons, it pays to hire an aggressive traffic ticket lawyer to handle a traffic ticket case.
