Why Fight a Traffic Ticket?
Traffic tickets can be very costly. Not only are there expensive fines for each type of traffic offense, car insurance premiums will usually go up whenever additional points have been added to an individual’s driving record. With that in mind, paying the fine listed on a traffic ticket without first discussing the matter with legal counsel is never advised.
While this may seem like the simplest option at the time, paying a traffic ticket is the same as entering a guilty plea in court. Admitting guilt could lead to other complications in the future should you ever be arrested for more serious vehicle-related charges. There are ways to successfully fight traffic tickets and challenge the accusations made against you.
