Traffic Ticket Penalties That Might Require the Help of an Attorney

A traffic ticket or two may seem like no big deal. You pay the fine and go on your way. Unfortunately, however, multiple tickets, unpaid tickets, or certain traffic violations can lead to more than a simple fine. In fact, at times, traffic tickets can lead to major penalties, and even the loss of your driving privileges. Here are a few of the penalties you might receive from traffic tickets that might make it worthwhile to hire an Abilene traffic ticket attorney.

Fines might be high enough to require the help of an Abilene traffic attorney.

While the fine for a single ticket is probably manageable without hiring legal representation, multiple tickets can lead to some surprisingly high fines. For example, if you receive 4 tickets with fines of $200 each, you may suddenly be facing $800 of charges that you may not have enough money to pay. As a result, being able to contest these tickets with the help of an Abilene traffic attorney might save you money.

License points may accrue without the help of an Abilene traffic attorney.

Every ticket you receive adds a certain number of points to your driver’s license. For example, moving violations add 2 points to your license, while violations resulting in an accident add 3 points to your license. Once you reach 6 points (or more) on your license, you must begin to pay annual surcharges. In addition, adding points to your driver’s license may result in higher auto insurance charges, which means you could be paying for your traffic violations for years to come. In these cases, hiring an Abilene traffic attorney who can help you avoid traffic convictions and points on your license can be a good choice.

Suspension or revocation of a driver’s license may require the help of an Abilene traffic attorney.

In the state of Texas, you may also face the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license in the face of certain or multiple traffic violations. This is a serious consequence that can make it very difficult to get to work or otherwise live your life. In Texas, 4 or more moving violations in one year, or 7 or more such violations in two years can result in a license suspension. In addition, serious traffic violations, such as passing a school bus, can lead to the temporary or permanent loss of your license. In these cases, you need an Abilene traffic attorney to help you keep your driving privileges.

If you find that traffic tickets are beginning to negatively impact your life, you may want to consider hiring an Abilene traffic attorney. Here at the Law Offices of David M. White, we can help you to minimize the penalties you face because of traffic tickets so you can get back to your life.
