Do you need a Durham traffic attorney? Traffic tickets for moving violations can be expensive problems for you. Expenses from the fine imposed and from the resulting increase in insurance premiums can be very costly. Some traffic convictions may also have a negative impact on certain types of employment or result in a driver’s license suspension. It can be very expensive to reinstate a driver’s license after it has been suspended. It makes sense to talk to a traffic lawyer to learn your rights.
Most traffic tickets are simple infractions. Other traffic tickets are actually criminal charges. For example, in North Carolina, speeding more than 15 mph over the posted speed limit or driving more than 80 mph regardless of the posted speed limit are actually criminal misdemeanor charges.
If you have gotten a traffic ticket in North Carolina, South Carolina or Tennessee, you are entitled to a trial. You may win the trial and have the ticket dismissed if it cannot be proven that you were guilty of the offense. Also, it may be that a settlement of the ticket can be negotiated that is less costly than the fine and/or the effect on your insurance premiums, your driving history, your driving privileges and/or your employment. It is worth speaking to a traffic attorney.
