It is not uncommon for residents of San Diego County to receive a traffic ticket for any variety of traffic violation. For many people, it’s easier to just pay the fine and forget about it. However, in a case where the ticket may have been unjust, the offense more serious or if you have multiple offenses, you may want to seek the help of an experienced traffic violation attorney in Oceanside or Vista. The consequences of a traffic violation can be more than just a fine. They can sometimes result in the suspension of your license or even jail time.
Why You Should Fight a Traffic Ticket
Traffic citations come with a fine but they can also come with points on your driving record. A traffic violation can add points to your license and cause an increase in your insurance rates. If you receive too many points within a certain period of time, you could possibly have your driver’s license suspended.
Many people do not know that if you plead not guilty and get a court date for trial, the amount of the fine and the possibility of traffic school stay the same. It may be in your best interest to submit a plea of not guilty because, if the ticketing officer does not appear in court on your trial date, the case will be dismissed and you will avoid paying the initial fine.
When you hire a qualified criminal defense attorney to represent you in a traffic violation case, you will be able to present a strong defense against the violation and have a greater chance of receiving a not guilty verdict in your case. An expert traffic violation attorney may also be able to help you avoid costly fines and even traffic school.
