Many People Fail to Fight Their Tickets – Don’t be One of Them!
The more moving violations you have on your driving record, the higher your insurance premiums are likely to be. And, even if you don’t get into an accident, one ticket can affect your rates for up to three years. So, rather than try to fight traffic tickets on your own or pay them without help—both of which can end up costing you more than hiring a lawyer anyway—call us and we’ll go with you to court. We’ll make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible—and that you come out with a favorable outcome.
According to traffic ticket statistics, more than 95% of tickets issued by law enforcement agencies are not contested by drivers. Given how costly even minor violations can be, you might wonder why. Although many people choose to not contest their traffic tickets because they’re simply unaware of their rights as drivers or they don’t want to go through all of the extra paperwork, it is important that you do not fall into either category. This is particularly true if you have had your license suspended or revoked in any way after receiving too many moving violations within a certain amount of time.
Fighting your traffic ticket can seem like an uphill battle, but there are a number of things you can do to help ensure success. For example, many people simply don’t show up to court because they aren’t aware of their rights as defendants or don’t think it will make much of a difference. If you do attend court and plead guilty, for example, you could end up paying higher insurance rates—and if you pay fines through points on your license, that could affect how much car insurance costs for years to come. More importantly, however, pleading guilty could result in having your case placed on your permanent record which could negatively impact job prospects down the road. It’s better to fight your traffic ticket than deal with those potential consequences!
The fact of the matter is, very few people actually fight their traffic tickets. We’ve even seen studies that suggest only five percent of people fight traffic tickets. Not all bad drivers are alike, but many share some common traits – and when it comes to fighting your ticket, you want to be sure you stand out from that crowd of 95 percent. Here are three reasons why you should definitely hire a traffic ticket lawyer
