When facing a traffic violation, it is not always so simple as merely paying a fine and forgetting about the citation. Often, a traffic violation can cause you to have to show up to court or may involve negotiations with the district attorney as to the severity of the punishment imposed. Sometimes, you may disagree on whether or not you actually committed a traffic infraction and may want to contest the citation as being improper. Furthermore, you may wish to have the violation you were cited for reduced or changed to a lesser charge, if the circumstances merit it.
The Northwest Indiana traffic violations lawyers of Arshad Pangere Warring LLP fight traffic violations for clients regularly. We can assess the best defense options for your case and seek the best possible outcome for your situation. Reach out as soon as you receive a traffic citation.
Many people think that traffic violations are no big deal – after all, people get them every day in the Northwest Indiana region. These violations do not make the news like many criminal offenses do, but you still must consider the possible repercussions of a traffic violation.
For starters, convictions of traffic violations are reported to your insurance company and lead to raised rates on your insurance premiums. Secondly, moving violations will result in points on your driving record. These points are accumulative, and if you are cited and convicted of too many violations, you can face the revocation of your license and excessively high fines. You might have to attend adult driver education courses to keep your license, and it can affect other aspects of your life as well.
While paying off the ticket and moving on may seem like the easiest way to get rid of the citation, it is not always the wisest thing to do. Paying the fines is essentially pleading guilty, which means the conviction and relative points will go on your record. It is often best to call a lawyer who can work to keep points off your license.
Driving slightly over the speed limit or failing to signal are infractions with no possible jail time, but some serious traffic violations are criminal offenses. These include:
If you face any of these serious charges, it is critical to have a defense attorney fighting to keep a conviction off your criminal record and avoid the harsh penalties that can come with a conviction.
