Traffic Ticket 411

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU RECEIVE A TRAFFIC TICKET

If you receive a traffic ticket, it is of vital importance to read the instructions given with the ticket. Some states print them on the reverse side, or there may be an additional page. Be sure to read these instructions closely! Some states require you send in a “not guilty” plea to obtain a court date.

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Moving traffic convictions can impact your ability to keep your job, can impact your insurance rates, and in some cases affect your CSA score. It is very important to try to avoid convictions. Even if a dismissal is not possible, attorneys may be able to have the ticket amended to a lesser charge, which would have a decreased impact on your driving record. The judge, the prosecutor, and the ticketing officer, AS WELL AS YOUR DRIVING RECORD, are factors that impact the final outcome of your case.

DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE

Failing to handle your citation can lead to a warrant and extra fines. You should never respond late to the courts. If you hire an attorney, it is important that you cooperate with the attorney by getting all requested paperwork to him in a timely manner. Remember that a conviction of two serious traffic violations will disqualify you from driving for 60 days.
