Accumulated driving points can severely impact your independence. Combat the consequences of traffic tickets with the help of a Manhattan traffic violation attorney from the Law Office of James Medows.
Making a wrong move behind the wheel can happen to any of us. Maybe you overlooked a sign, for example, or you were driving a little too fast. In some cases, you might believe you didn’t do anything wrong. In any case, you were pulled over and now you’re looking at a traffic ticket.
The points associated with a traffic ticket can have serious consequences, but you might not be sure what those are or how you can avoid them. Fortunately, that’s what a Manhattan driving points lawyer is here for.
At the Law Office of James Medows, we understand how difficult it can be to face the word of a police officer. We’re experienced with these cases and we’ll fight for the positive outcome you need.
When you’re pulled over, the officer will give you a ticket with a specific violation, which comes with a certain number of driving points. If you choose to pay your ticket and plead guilty, you’ll receive that number of points on your license. The number of points depends on the severity of your offense, but they tend to fall between three and eleven points.
At first, these points might not affect your license. But with multiple offenses come dire consequences. When you reach eleven points within eighteen months, for example, your license will be suspended for some time, which leaves you with all your vehicle’s normal bills, but without the option to use it.
Of course, the easiest way to protect your driving record is to avoid accumulating points in the first place. But, things happen, and we all make mistakes.
If you’ve pleaded guilty for your ticket, driving school or programs to reduce your penalties could be an option for you. Although you won’t get out of paying the fines for your traffic violation, you won’t have to worry about the buildup of points on your driving record.
If you want to avoid the expenses and fines for your case, though, disputing your offense can be an option. If you believe the officer was mistaken, and that you shouldn’t have received a traffic ticket, reach out to an attorney for help.
When you’re pulled over in Manhattan, you’re not only looking at a fine for your traffic violation; you’re also looking at points on your license. If you accumulate enough points, your license could be suspended and you could be without a reliable form of transportation for some time.
It’s not always easy to dispute a ticket without help. Consider enlisting a driving points attorney to avoid the consequences of a traffic ticket. We’ll work diligently to gather the necessary evidence and dispute the charges in court, if necessary.
