Traffic Violations Archives

Traffic violations can impact your life for a long time

Traffic violations aren't usually thought of as serious matters; however, these violations can cause significant issues in your life. Many people, especially those who rely on having their driver's license to do their job, might need to take the time to consider presenting a defense against a traffic violation. We can help you to learn about the options that you have for handling traffic violations.

Can I fight a traffic ticket in North Carolina?

Getting a traffic ticket is something that most people view as a nuisance. While this is the case if you don't get these violations often, even seemingly small tickets can lead to considerable issues if you get tickets a lot. Knowing some basic points about traffic tickets in North Carolina can help you to determine what steps you need to take if you are given one.

The difference between misdemeanor and felony charges

When it comes to misdemeanors, although they are not felonies, they should still be taken seriously. Those charged with misdemeanors can not only go to jail, but face hefty fines. Depending on the particular nature of the crime, these charges can adversely impact not only one's family life, but one's career.

Think about the consequences of paying a speeding ticket

Commercials on television say that what you do while you are in a specific city will stay in that city. That is true for a lot of things; however, it isn't true for matters that have to do with the law. Tickets, for example, can follow you around in many places. This is why some people choose to fight back when they are charged with speeding tickets.

Traffic violations can accumulate points toward suspensions

Driving in North Carolina is a privilege, not a right. When you have traffic violations, your license is assessed points. These points can lead to your license being suspended if you accumulate 12 points within a three-year period. It is important to understand that the points accumulate when you are convicted, not when the ticket is written. This might spur some people to fight the ticket in court when they are given one.

Driver's license suspensions are possible for various offenses

Most drivers try to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. When there are serious traffic violations that occur, there is a good chance that your driver's license will be suspended. The length of time that your license is suspended depends on the offense that occurs.

It may be worth it to fight your speeding ticket

North Carolinians pay lower premiums for their car insurance than drivers in most other states. But that applies only to drivers who don't get caught speeding. Those with a lead foot on the gas find that they have many additional expenses as a result of their need for speed.

Understanding why you can't afford to just ignore your traffic citation

At this very moment, people in offices, warehouses, retail stores, construction sites and every other imaginable worksite across North Carolina are eagerly awaiting the end of their shifts so they can start enjoying the Labor Day weekend.
