Traffic Tickets

If you have never received a traffic ticket, consider yourself very lucky. Receiving a ticket can be an unsettling experience. While your first reaction may be to pay off your ticket and forget it ever happened, STOP! Merely paying off a traffic ticket could have a serious impact on your driver’s license record and your automobile insurance rates. Too many points on your North Carolina driver’s license can also lead to a suspension of your driver’s license privilege. North Carolina drivers also need to be aware of how traffic tickets affect their insurance points. People with commercial driver’s licenses (CDLs) have even less margin for error in dealing with traffic tickets. Out-of-state drivers who receive a traffic ticket in North Carolina definitely should not just mail in the money to pay the ticket.

So what should you do if you get a traffic ticket? Can you get the ticket reduced? How many points could you get for your ticket if you plead guilty to a lesser offense? Can you get a PJC? What is a PJC? If you are an out-of-state driver, does your home state recognize a PJC? Should you take the time to go to court and handle the ticket yourself? Do you really have to go to driving school to have your ticket reduced? Is it worth your time and money to go to court and handle the ticket yourself or is it a better investment to hire an experienced attorney to take care of it for you?

  1. You need not pay a ticket if you feel it is charged unfairly. You should fight that ticket rather than pay it for no reason. You can hire a traffic ticket attorney to fight your tickets.

    • Correct indeed. It is always best to consult an attorney before deciding how to handle a ticket.

  2. Its better to fight a traffic ticket than getting it dismissed. If you feel you are not guilty then you should fight for it. You need not pay it unnecessarily.

    • Just to be clear, if your fight against the ticket is successful the ticket will be dismissed. So a dismissal is the goal as you will save on a conviction, points, and costs. The decision to fight the ticket or seek a reduction/negotiated plea is one that should come after consulting with an attorney.
