The Traffic Ticket Trap

You probably aren’t aware of it, but when you receive a traffic ticket, you enter the complex system of your local criminal court where negotiation is more often accepted than a simple set of rules to be simply followed. They don’t tell you that, of course; that’s why nine in 10 traffic offenders simply pay the ticket rather than fight it in court.

Paying your ticket has serious drawbacks: It counts as a conviction on your record. This results in points being assigned to your driving record. When you accumulate enough traffic tickets for your driving record to reach a certain level of points for the first time, you may receive a written notice to take a special written point examination. And in recent years, the ripple costs of a conviction have eclipsed the immediate financial ding to your wallet.

Today, the wrong ticket at the wrong time can send your insurance through the roof, result in a suspended license and steep state surcharges, and even cost you your job!

If you wonder if you need a traffic lawyer, you probably do.

Here’s how the economy has converged to create traffic tickets as a new and growing market for municipal income:

Traffic ticket income has become very important to the ever growing number of financially strapped cities and counties throughout the USA, which have found it noncontroversial to bump their traffic ticket fines considerably over the past few years. Philadelphia has even installed high-tech red-light cameras to catch and generate a fine to those who fail to stop.

We are seeing more and more traffic tickets around the USA especially speeding tickets, being issued every year it is big money for municipalities.

Then there’s the dreaded insurance increase; with each speeding ticket you’re looking at increases in your auto insurance until you are paying sky-high premiums and sometimes additional surcharges, for a minimum of two to three years. The only way to keep traffic ticket points off of your record is to hire a traffic ticket attorney to fight for you. As a result, a violation today can be a high-stakes game for many motorists, especially those with recent priors. As more and more moving violations are issued, more drivers quickly approach either the financial threshold (fines, points and surcharges), the loss of their license or both.

You need a speeding ticket lawyer working on your behalf to reduce fines, avoid points or even get your traffic ticket dismissed.

Traffic ticket attorneys know the players, the economic directives, the ever-changing laws and the processes by which cases get resolved in their local traffic courts. A case may be dismissed outright for several technical reasons. Or it may be bargained into dismissal in exchange for pleas on other nonmoving violations. Or they may be dismissed after an unsupervised probationary period.
