Getting a traffic ticket can mean points on your license, increased insurance premiums, and if you’re a repeat offender or under 21-a suspended license; even if you have a traffic ticket attorney in Madison County – Georgia, you may still have a criminal record. For commercial drivers—bus, taxi, Uber, Lyft, and truckers—this could mean the end of your livelihood. A traffic ticket might be pretextual, too, where the police make an unsubstantiated stop and find an open container or drugs in the car. That traffic ticket then escalates into a criminal charge of DUI or drug possession.
Or the police officer might not like your attitude, causing an arbitrary decision to increase a minor infraction like failure to signal into an aggressive driving charge, with all the escalating penalties.
Plus, if the traffic ticket is issued at the site of an accident that caused bodily or property damage, or even death, contesting that ticket is essential to your defense to a criminal charge, personal injury, or wrongful death action.
If you are a under 21 driver, a speeding ticket 24+ mph over the limit or other serious traffic violation will suspend your license for 120 days or more unless negotiated to a lesser offense.
