The fines and penalties associated with traffic tickets can take a serious bite out of your pocketbook. In addition to high fines, you also face an increase in your auto insurance. These significant financial pitfalls make paying a traffic ticket less appealing than fighting to maintain a clean driving record. A successful case can result in reduced charges that stay off your driving record and help keep your insurance premiums manageable.
There have been reports lately about this very topic, as it relates to a controversial method in place for issuing traffic tickets. The so called “red light camera litigation” may result in those that received traffic tickets from use of a camera receiving a refund. The possibility of getting money back is a perfect example of why you should fight traffic tickets, other important considerations include:
● Keeping harmful points off your driving record.
● Maintaining your right to drive, by avoiding possible suspension or revocation for having accumulated too many points.
● Maintaining budget friendly insurance rates.
The red light camera tickets are unique; there are of course other instances where you might be cited for a moving violation that can have damaging effects on your ability to drive. Speeding, reckless driving, DUI, or driving with a suspended or revoked license all involve receiving a traffic ticket. And, just as in the instance of the red light camera tickets, these charges should be aggressively defended. The more serious the charge (such as a DUI), the more serious the consequence (such as higher fines, loss of license, and possible jail time).
