Traffic Ticket FAQ

Every person who receives a traffic ticket wants to know what is going to happen next. He/she wants to know about some of the penalties that will apply to him/her, and he/she wants to know what he/she needs to do to protect his/her driving privileges. Some of the common frequently asked questions we hear at our firm include:

  • How much are speeding tickets? There is no way to answer this question without knowing the specific facts surrounding your ticket. You need to remember that in addition to the fines connected to the citation, you also will be facing increased insurance costs. Make sure that you understand all of your options before you decide your next steps.
  • What penalties will be handed down in my case? Because each case is different, there are a number of different consequences that will result if you are convicted. These include the possible loss of your driving privileges, traffic ticket fines and even jail time for serious offenses.
  • Will this ticket have an impact in my home state? In many cases, the answer to this question is absolutely yes. Out-of-state motorists who receive a ticket in North Carolina will need to inform themselves about the penalties that will apply to their licenses in their home states. You should not ignore these tickets, because it will only make the penalties worse.
  • How do I get out of a traffic ticket? Again, this will depend upon the ticket that you received. Your best option is to consult an experienced attorney to learn more about the options available to you.
  • Why is an attorney important? It is important that you have an experienced attorney advising you of the possible consequences of your ticket, and also what you need to do to remain behind the wheel. Every situation is different, and you need to know how your ticket will impact your driving privileges.

In addition, your attorney will be able to pursue a resolution to your case that may minimize the consequences you are facing.
