A few points on your license might not seem like a big deal at first, but what if your driving privileges are on the line? Reach out to a Queens license points lawyer for help avoiding driving points.
When you’re issued a traffic ticket, it can be a frustrating experience. You don’t want to be stuck with hefty fines or driving school, after all. You might also run the risk of adding driving points to your license, which you might not fully understand the consequences of. After all, they don’t immediately affect your ability to drive, so what do they do?
Unfortunately, those points can hurt your future driving validity, so you’ll need to avoid them when possible. Fortunately, a Queens driving points lawyer from the Law Office of James Medows can help you fight back against traffic citations and possibly get your ticket dismissed.
Each moving violation is worth a certain number of points, and each time you plead guilty to a moving violation, those points are added to your license. As they add up, they endanger the validity of your license.
These points are meant to deter drivers from breaking traffic laws by assigning them long-term consequences. For example, if you’re found guilty of multiple cell phone violations, your license could be suspended.
If you receive eleven points within eighteen months, your license will be suspended, which leaves you without personal transportation to work, school, or the other typical places you need to be. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean you can skip your car payments, insurance coverage, or parking fees, either. You’ll be paying for your car without having the privilege of driving it.
Going without the ability to drive simply isn’t a viable option for most people, which is why you’ll need to seek out help for your case. A driving points lawyer can help you avoid these serious consequences by helping you get your ticket penalties reduced or dismissed completely.
Once you plead not guilty, you and your lawyer will begin collecting evidence that shows that you didn’t break a traffic law or that the officer made a mistake. For example, although minor errors on your ticket won’t be enough to get your citation dismissed, a major mistake can. If you’re accused of speeding on Main street, but you were on the other side of town at the time, your ticket could be dismissed.
When you’ve received driving points on your license, your license is at risk of being suspended, leaving you to find another way to get where you need to go. Fortunately, you do have options that can help you avoid the consequences of a ticket.
If you’re struggling to have your ticket dropped, you might need a lawyer from the Law Office of James Medows. Our attorneys can help you fight back so you can get back on the road.
