Traffic Offense Representation For Gwinnett, Forsyth, Hall And Dawson Counties
Everyone knows that a traffic citation will likely be tough on the wallet — usually a hefty fine of $100 or more. But aside from monetary loss, many of us aren’t necessarily aware of other consequences involved with traffic offenses.
Here’s why getting an attorney to help with your traffic citation is vital.
The Loss Of Your Driver’s License
Many unassuming traffic offenses involve the loss of a driver’s license. Driving on a suspended license, hit and run, fleeing or eluding a police officer, or an accumulation of too many points on a license can all mandate a license suspension. Given that many people rely on their vehicle to get to and from work or school, this is a serious matter.
There is mandatory 48-hour jail time involved for those found driving on a suspended license or without a license—and can escalate from there depending on the circumstances. Even first-time suspended license offenders can face up to a year in jail.
Hike In Your Insurance Premiums
Most traffic citations will also involve a hike in auto insurance premiums. Given that many auto insurance carriers will implement the rise for at least three years, this can mean hundreds of dollars out of pocket, even for those who have received a simple speeding ticket.
