Sacramento Lawyer Defending Against Traffic Violations
Many people do not realize that when they get a traffic ticket, the situation could be more serious than they think. Points on your license can significantly impact your insurance rates and employment options for many years after the initial infraction(s).
First, some traffic offenses are regarded as driving infractions. These tickets can be resolved by paying a fine. Other driving conduct, however, can rise to the level of an actual crime, punishable by jail or prison, depending on the offense.
Second, when you simply pay the ticket for a driving offense, you are essentially pleading guilty. The conduct goes on your insurance record and depending on the offense; it could go on your criminal record as well. Furthermore, you may be eligible for traffic school, depending on the individual facts of your case and your prior driving record.
Your best course of action, even for minor traffic violations, is to consult a lawyer.
