Arrests On The Road
While traffic violations may seem like a common and minor occurrence, if allowed to add up they can create consequences that become a major problem. Accumulated points on your license can cause your insurance rates to increase, and can even get your license suspended or revoked. By consulting with a qualified and experienced attorney in North Carolina, you are taking a step to protect your finances and your freedom to drive.
Traffic Violations Are Criminal Charges
By declining to contest traffic violations, instead opting to just pay them and be done with it, you are technically pleading guilty to whatever charges you face. While immediately paying the fine will put a traffic charge behind you in the short term, any additional violations will continue to count against you, increasing the likelihood that you could lose your license or face other serious consequences. If you are caught driving with a revoked license, the penalties will be even greater.
Speeding tickets, driving with a revoked or expired license, driving with expired tags and registration, running a stop sign, failure to yield and reckless or distracted driving are misdemeanor traffic charges that can cause a major headache, if you don’t deal with them in a timely and appropriate manner.
