Why Should I Hire A Lawyer?
Failing to contest your traffic ticket can cost you a lot more than just a fine. Tickets add points to your license, which could result in loss of your license and/or an increase in your car insurance rates.
What's So Bad About Having Points on My License?
If you accumulate four or more points in a 12-month period, the Driver Licensing Division will send you a letter warning that you are in danger of having your driver's license suspended. If you accumulate eight or more points in an 18-month period, your driver's license will be suspended for 30 days. If this is your second suspension, you'll lose your driving privileges for 60 days, and 90 days on any subsequent suspensions. If you accumulate 12 or more points in 12 months, 18 or more points in 24 months, or 24 or more points in 36 months, your driver's license will be suspended for one year.
