Can't I Just Go to Traffic School?
Choosing between fighting a ticket and attending traffic school will depend on the nature of your traffic violation and your existing driving record. If you already have several points on your license, attending traffic school may be a wise choice to clean up your record and avoid an expensive hike of your insurance rates.
With that being said, choosing traffic school is essentially pleading guilty to your violation and will subject you to the associated fines. Fighting your ticket in court can potentially allow you to have your ticket dismissed altogether. It would be wise to discuss your options with a traffic ticket lawyer before making a decision.
Our firm handles all types of traffic tickets, such as:
How a Ticket Affects Your Driving Record
A NY police officer can give you a ticket for numerous reasons, including running a red light, speeding, and texting while driving. The severity of your violation will dictate the penalties you incur as a result. If you don’t fight your ticket, you may wind up paying a serious fine and having points added to your driving record.
Reach out for legal help before simply paying your traffic ticket.
The fine and points you receive may depend on:
- The type of traffic violation
- The number of points already on your record
- Which court is handling your case
- The county where you received your ticket
New York’s point system is fairly easy to understand. Getting six points within 18 months means you must pay $100 per year for three years. Any additional points during those three years tacks an additional $75 per point onto your yearly fine.
The court is serious about deterring repeat offenders and points can accumulate quickly. Legal representation is a must, even if your violation seems minor.
