PEOPLE RARELY REALIZE THE REAL COST OF A TRAFFIC TICKET
Most people accept the traffic tickets they get as an inconvenience. Your day is somewhat delayed. Your weekly budget may be a bit off because of the cost of the ticket. But, people still sign their tickets and send them in with a check.
What Does a Traffic Ticket Actually Cost?
People rarely see beyond the fine they have to pay for their ticket. But, the real cost — the one that should make you think twice before signing that ticket and sending it in — is in:
Insurance increases — The impact of a traffic ticket on your insurance premiums can stay with you for years. While the amount your insurance increases in an individual month may not seem substantial, when multiplied over years of paying that increase, the cost can be very surprising and add up to more than the cost of securing defense representation. Fighting your ticket now is the only way to avoid those increased insurance costs.
Points on your driver’s license — Every driving infraction adds points to your driver’s license. Most of the time, this is not an issue. But, most of us are one bad luck streak away from finding ourselves with too many points and an automatic driver’s license suspension. The only way to ensure your points stay low is to fight each traffic violation.
I can provide a vigorous and effective defense against all types of traffic violations, including:
- Driving while suspended/revoked
- Reckless driving/careless driving
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Failure to stop
- Improper passing
