Speeding Tickets

Unfortunately, the speeding traffic ticket fines are not the only penalty you receive when you plead guilty to a speeding ticket. There are a number of additional penalties you must be aware of that come as a punishment for speeding Including, (1) Potential License Suspension, (2) Points on your Drivers License, and (3) Increased Insurance Costs. Many of these penalties are avoidable. Hiring a speeding traffic ticket violation lawyer gives you your best chance to avoid suspension.

Driving on a Suspended License

Being pulled over for Driving on a Suspended License is a very serious traffic offense. Many times, licenses can be suspended, even without your knowledge, due to failure to pay fines or make payments on a payment plan, a lapse in insurance, or failure to respond to a citation. Regardless of the reason for the suspension pleading guilty WILL RESULT IN A 1 YEAR ADDITIONAL SUSPENSION. Multiple convictions for driving under suspension can also result in up to 90 days in Jail, in addition to the suspension. Call our Traffic Ticket Lawyer today to fight these charges and avoid these serious charges.

Will I Lose My License?

Getting a traffic ticket can be a very frustrating experience. Many times you are given the traffic ticket and are completely unaware of how pleading guilty will affect your driver’s license. Many factors must be considered in making that determination including, whether it was an active school/Work zone, the speed you were traveling, insurance status, and how many total points you accumulated for the incident. At The Shelton Firm we understand the importance of having a driver’s license. Please today for a free consultation and see if your license is in jeopardy of suspension.
