Going, going…Gotcha! Speedtrap!


Driving is a necessity for many of us.  Unless you live in a major city where mass transit or other forms of moving are readily available (and often well-advised) you must take to the road to get from Point A to Point G and all the points in between.  North Carolina is fortunate to have some of the better roads and highways in the United States.  We have roads to and through the awe-inspiring mountains as well as highways that provide an outstanding views of coastal life.  And it is of the utmost importance that travels on these many roads and highways be as safe as possible.  As you can imagine some highways and roadways are travelled more frequently and at higher rates of speed than others.  On these and other locations it is not uncommon to find a high percentage of motorists being pulled over for traffic violations.   These locations are often referred to as speedtraps. 

All motorists should drive safely and be conscious of the rules of the road; no qualms here.  That being said it does not hurt to have an idea which areas law enforcement is more likely to be laying in wait or otherwise more likely to catch violators of traffic laws.  Click here, here, here, and here to find the location of speedtraps in your area.  There are mobile apps designed to alert motorists of speedtraps, high-volume traffic enforcement areas, and road hazards.

If you are unfortunate enough to receive a traffic ticket (speeding, driving while license revoked, no operator’s license, seat belt, registration/plate/tag issue, etc.) in Guilford, Forsyth, or Randolph Counties in North Carolina feel free to contact me for a free consultation about possible representation.  I offer reasonable fees and can save you time and money in the long run by working to minimize the impact of a ticket on your driver’s license and insurance.  And holders of commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs) should definitely consult a lawyer before deciding how to handle a ticket……the wrong move could cost you your livelihood.

Bottom line:  be safe on those highways and be smart if you get a ticket.  This is something we can all agree on.
