Experienced Traffic Lawyer in Houston
When it comes to traffic tickets, fines, and penalties, it is always in
your best interest to do some research, explore your options, and get
a professional opinion before paying up. In many cases, doing so can save
you thousands of dollars in the long run. If you have received a traffic
ticket and are worried about the consequences, call our experienced Houston
traffic attorney at
The Law Office of Jason Luong, PLLC before reading further.
When you opt to pay a traffic ticket without questioning it, contesting
it, or looking for ways to mitigate penalties, you are committing what
is legally considered an admission of guilt. This means that when you
pay a ticket, regardless of whether it was justified or fair, you will
be on the hook for the full package of consequences. Typically, this doesn’t
end with payment of the initial fine it and often includes points on your
license, increased insurance rates, and more.
Increased insurance rates are the most serious, long-term costs of traffic
tickets and the most important reason for making sure that you have done
everything possible to contest your ticket. When you pay your ticket as-is,
you admit to all of the allegations on your ticket. Upon payment of your
ticket, the behaviors you were ticketed for will be passed on to your
auto insurance provider as fact, and your insurance premium will likely.
While it may seem like a lot of effort to get out of a ticket for $150,
consider that paying that ticket could also put you on the hook for premium
increases totaling thousands of dollars more for years to come.
Understand that contesting your traffic ticket does not mean a full-scale
court case, even if you are fighting jail time, and that fighting it is
almost always worth the time and effort. No matter how serious or seemingly
small the consequences of your traffic ticket may be, don’t wait
to begin protecting yourself from the negative, big-picture effects it
could have. If you have received a traffic ticket, you have a narrow window
of time to explore opportunities to contest it.
