Why Fight A Howell, New Jersey Traffic Ticket?
When you get a traffic ticket, the first option is to simply pay it and be done with it. But do not give in to this thinking. The most obvious downside to paying a traffic ticket right away is the cost of the fine. This is your hard earned money from which you have already paid taxes. A traffic ticket is just another tax being paid.
The next downside to a traffic conviction are the points that are imposed. An accumulation of 6 or more points triggers surcharges that must be paid to keep you license in good standing. If you accumulate 12 points on your license, the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) will suspend your license. There are no work, hardship or conditional licenses so you cannot drive legally if a suspension is imposed. You must also pay a restoration fee once the revocation period has elapsed.
Another reason to not simply pay off your traffic ticket is how it will affect your auto insurance premiums. If you have too many tickets on your driving record, your insurance premiums will increase and your insurance company may even deny you coverage, forcing you to seek high-risk auto insurance which will cost you a lot more money.
Lastly, may motor vehicle charges result in a suspension of your driving privileges. There are many examples of violations which automatically trigger a suspension including DWI, possession of CDS in a motor vehicle, driving while suspended and driving without insurance.
How An Experienced Howell Traffic Lawyer Can Help
When you get a traffic ticket you should at least speak with an experienced traffic lawyer before you pay the fine. Aside from the reasons listed above, our traffic lawyers will be able to articulate several other reasons why you shouldn’t simply pay the ticket.
You may even have a legitimate defense to the ticket. Remember, even with a traffic ticket, you are not guilty until the court rules that you are guilty, or unless you voluntarily pay the ticket.
In many cases, an experienced traffic lawyer can get a traffic ticket downgraded or dismissed, which will avoid the fine, the points against your license, and the possible suspension of your driving privilege.
