Don't Pay Your Ticket - Fight It!
The average driver's life would change significantly with the loss of his or her driver's license, yet many people treat a traffic citation as casually as they treat a parking ticket. Unlike parking tickets, points are assessed and added to your driving record for every serious moving violation that you receive. Your insurance premium rates are affected by the number of points on your driving record and once you have a certain number of points, your driver's license can be suspended or revoked by the DMV. One of the only ways to preserve your driving privileges is to keep your record clear of convictions for traffic offenses. If you have received a traffic citation, you must be aware of the penalties at stake so that you can make an informed decision before you decide to simply plead guilty.
While you may be wondering whether it is worth it to take the time and fight your traffic ticket, we can guarantee you that it is. Traffic tickets are still criminal charges, and depending on your situation, you can find yourself facing a significant impact in connection with this allegation. Like any accusation, you deserve to protect your rights. The Samuelson Law Firm can help. Call us now to speak with a lawyer in a consultation.
Should I Fight My Ticket?
A traffic citation isn't an automatic conviction, it is an opportunity to have a fair hearing and present your defense. Assuming that you only need a defense attorney if you are facing criminal charges can be a serious mistake. The prosecutor is a trained, experienced professional who understands all the rules and procedures of the legal system and is committed to gaining a conviction. You need a legal advocate who can recognize when an officer has violated your rights or overstepped his legal bounds, and who can use this evidence to enter a motion to suppress the evidence used against you. By thoroughly investigating the circumstances of the citation, an experienced criminal defense lawyer can build a strong defense strategy regarding such offenses as:
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Driving without a license
- Vehicular assault
- Vehicular manslaughter
- Habitual traffic offender
- Driving under revocation
- Reckless driving
- Careless driving
Simply paying a traffic ticket and moving on also means you are accepting fault for the crime you have been accused of. That's what a traffic ticket is- the allegation of a crime. Even a minor ticket can have a significant impact, and you deserve to speak with a defense attorney willing to uphold your interests and fight for your rights.
