Even though speeding tickets are common throughout the State, they can have a very real and serious effect on your driver’s license and insurance rates. Individuals charged with speeding infractions that go to court without a lawyer can be making a big mistake by not realizing the consequences that can accompany even a simple speeding ticket.
Traffic infractions can carry two types of points, insurance points and driver’s license points.Since 12 driver’s license points can lead to the DMV suspending your license and insurance points can dramatically increase your car insurance rates, it is important to hire an attorney that knows the consequences of each infraction and can achieve the best result for you based on your driving record. Even one serious speeding conviction can lead to your license being suspended by the DMV.
