There are many different types of traffic tickets, however, we’re going to focus on speeding tickets. Generally speaking, if you were caught driving in excess of 100 mph, your conviction could include a license suspension as well as 2 points on your license.
Speeding Tickets and Traffic School
In some counties, courts do not permit people that were allegedly speeding over 85 mph to attend traffic school. It is best to check with an experienced traffic attorney to see if the county where you received your speeding ticket applies any local rules that would prevent you from attending traffic school.
Advantages of Hiring An Attorney
Hiring an attorney to fight your traffic ticket can exponentially increase your likelihood of getting the best possible outcome for your traffic ticket. Aside from showing up to court on your behalf, your attorney will implement the right legal strategies to fight your ticket. This may include extending your court date, questioning the officer’s memory of the event, and questioning the officer’s notes. The right legal strategies will increase the potential for your ticket to be dismissed.
Risks of Not Hiring An Attorney
Consequences of not hiring an attorney to fight your ticket will vary depending on the type of speeding ticket you have, but generally, it could include points on your license which will result in higher insurance premiums. Simply put, you can spend way more money on insurance over time than you would hiring an attorney to fight your ticket.
