When you receive a traffic ticket for a moving violation, the police officer should also hand you a pamphlet, or some other paperwork outlining some options you have that need to be handled within 30 days of the day the ticket is issued. The options outlined in the pamphlet are generally as follows:

Option 1: Pay the Ticket – This is almost always the worst thing you can do.  When you pay a ticket, you are essentially pleading guilty to breaking the law, and as a result, points will be assessed against your license.  Points being assessed against your license will cause your auto insurance rates to increase significantly, as well as exposing you to a possible driver’s license suspension.  We can fight the ticket for you, and almost always guarantee that you will not receive points on your license, you will not be convicted of the violation, and you will not have to attend traffic school.  Before ever paying a ticket, under any circumstances, call us at 954-899-0384, for a free consultation.

Option 2: Elect Traffic School – This option is only available to you six (6) times in your entire lifetime, and you can only elect traffic school in lieu of points and a conviction one time every year.  Also, when you elect traffic school, you will still be responsible for paying the ticket, and for paying the cost of the traffic school.  Almost always, we can fight your ticket for you, while guaranteeing you will not have to attend traffic school, and will not receive points on your license.  In many cases, we are able to have the charges dismissed completely.  Before electing traffic school in lieu of points and a conviction, under any circumstances, call us at 954-899-0384, for a free consultation.

Option 3: Elect a Court Hearing – This is often times your best option.  However, if you work, or go to school, or are unfamiliar with the traffic laws and procedures, this option can also be problematic.  When you hire a lawyer to represent you for a traffic citation, your lawyer will elect this option for you.  Your lawyer will file pleadings with the clerk of the court informing them that they now represent you for the traffic ticket, and all hearing notices will be sent to your lawyer as well as you.  Almost always, your lawyer can appear in court for you, without you having to appear as well.  this means that you do not have to take time out of your busy schedule, nor do you have to fight the traffic on the way to and from the courthouse.  You also will save money on parking and on gas.  The Lawyers at GELLER – Criminal | Traffic | DUI – Defense Attorneys, have fought thousands of traffic tickets, and have the experience necessary to achieve the very best results possible.  This means that you will not have to go to court, and face the anxiety of being questioned by a judge, and confronting the police officer that issued you the citation.  In most cases, we can represent you in court, without you having to be there.  Also inmost cases, we can guarantee that you will not receive points on your license, you will not be convicted of the violation, and you will not have to attend traffic school.

 

Every citation has its own unique set of facts and circumstances, and each client has a unique driving history that may dictate which option is best for them.  That being said, in most cases, it is pretty clear that Option 3, when represented by an experienced Traffic Ticket Defense Attorney, is the best option.  For a free consultation, or to hire us, call 954-899-0384 in Broward, and call 786-319-9852 in Miami-Dade.
