A traffic ticket always seems like an aggravating, yet easy to resolve, issue. Most people simply pay their fines and move on. Few people realize that you can effectively defend against traffic violations and that you should. Apart from fines, most drivers will face an increase in their insurance premiums that would be much more costly than the expense of defending yourself. Defending yourself against a traffic ticket also prevents the accumulation of points that could cause a driver’s license suspension.
Are You Facing Reckless Driving Charges?
Many people may think they are receiving a simple traffic violation when they are actually being charged with reckless driving. If the police believe you were travelling at over 80 mph, or 20 mph or more over a posted speed limit, you will be facing reckless driving charges. This is a class 1 misdemeanor and punishable by up to 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine.
Protect Your CDL
For commercial drivers, any traffic violation can have a major impact on their commercial driving privileges. Most truckers and commercial drivers cannot afford to have their commercial driver’s license (CDL) threatened because of the disruption it could cause in their ability to earn an income. We understand how important it is for truckers to protect their CDLs, and we provide the defense they need.
