Traffic Ticket Defense
Traffic tickets are an annoyance we will will all face at some point. No matter how good we drive, we all make mistakes. It is easy to let your speed get away from you. Perhaps you are travelling with the speed of traffic, or just not paying attention? City police, sheriffs, and the state patrol are waiting for you to make a mistake. The cities, counties, and states need revenue to operate, and an easy source of that revenue is the steady stream of tickets that officers and troopers write. They set up speed traps using radar, laser, and even airplanes to measure your speed.
While a ticket and the fine that comes with it may seem like an simple annoyance, these tickets can actually cost a lot more than the face value of the fine. Often times those that receive a traffic ticket have their insurance rates raised, and these rate increases can be kept in place for at least three years, depending on the type of ticket that you receive. Over those many years, the financial consequences can add up to thousands of dollars, over and above what you pay as a fine for the traffic offense. You also could be cancelled by your insurance, could have your drivers license suspended, or could have to purchase high risk insurance.
