The Larger Consequences Of Traffic Tickets

If you have been ticketed for speeding, careless driving or driving while your license is revoked, it can be tempting to simply pay the ticket and try to move on with your life. Traffic tickets, however, can have effects on your driving record and your insurance that go beyond merely paying a fine. You may want to have a lawyer help you reduce or mitigate these unpleasant effects.

At Combs & Lee, Attorneys at Law, PLLC, you will find a Winston-Salem traffic law attorney who can help you fight traffic tickets that could have serious consequences on your life. We help people throughout the Triad of North Carolina with both traffic tickets and criminal charges.

License Suspensions, Higher Premiums Among Penalties

Traffic tickets can affect your life in several ways. North Carolina has a point system under which you accumulate points for driving tickets. If you accumulate enough points, your driver's license can be suspended. Even before a license suspension kicks in, your insurance company may raise your premiums if you have tickets on your record.

Some traffic tickets can result in more than just fines. If you are ticketed for driving while license revoked (DWLR), you could face criminal penalties that include jail time.
