YOUR SOUTH FLORIDA TRAFFIC TICKET ATTORNEYS
WHAT ARE YOUR OPTIONS WHEN YOU GET A TRAFFIC TICKET
If you decide to pay the fine associated with the traffic violation, you are actually admitting to the violation (pleading guilty) and it will appear on your record as an adjudication of guilt. This could possibly expose you to points on your license, license suspension, and other unwanted and unneeded risks, such as higher car insurance premiums.
If you elect to attend traffic school, you are in essence pleading no contest to the violation. You will incur the costs of attending traffic school as well as paying the fine associated with the traffic ticket – not to mention sitting through 4 hours of traffic school. There are several restrictions on electing to attend traffic school, and it may not always be an option, however.
If you elect to contest the violation in Court without the representation of an attorney, you will suffer a disadvantage as to the multitude of defenses, procedural knowledge, and litigation experience that you would acquire through retaining an attorney. A plea of not guilty presented to the Court will ultimately result in a trial on the charges. Without the representation of an attorney, you will be responsible for your own defense at trial. If the Court finds you guilty at trial, it will impose points, will likely require you to pay a hefty fine, including court costs, and perhaps even requiring your attending traffic school, issuing a license suspension, jail time, or other possible negative results, depending on the severity of the violation.
