we will do it together
Many people are unaware that paying a traffic ticket penalty is the same as pleading guilty or being charged. You don’t have to pay the fine if you don’t want to; you have the option of contesting the ticket. It has the potential to save you a significant amount of money in the long run.
A simple traffic ticket can have severe consequences. You want to defend your rights, but you don’t know what to do if you can’t make the court date. We address a wide variety of traffic offenses at our law firm, from driving while license is revoked to reckless driving and speeding. Our Texas Traffic Violation lawyers have the necessary experience to fight your traffic ticket.
The laws governing traffic tickets are complex. The Texas Transportation Code contains the most widely used laws police officers use to issue traffic tickets, which are referred to as the “Rules of the Road.” These have been codified, giving Texas cities the right to issue traffic tickets through their police departments. Many of these laws have legal defenses that you can use to get a traffic ticket dismissed.
A traffic violation is an illegal act committed while operating a motor vehicle. The Transportation Code lists violations concerning motor vehicles. Breaking the speed limit is the most common traffic violation. If you have a commercial license, it’s important not to have a violation on your permanent record because it might jeopardize your ability to find work. Furthermore, accumulating too many points in a short period will result in your driving privileges being suspended. If you have a commercial driver’s license or a regular class “c” driver’s license, fighting the ticket is the only way to avoid losing your license.
With recent changes in Texas law, it’s more important than ever for drivers to be vigilant to keep their driving records as clean as possible. In most cases, our ticket lawyers will help you secure a favorable resolution of your case without you ever needing to appear in court.
Although traffic tickets may not seem to be a big deal, they can have a significant effect on your life. The truth is that even a simple speeding ticket, if not handled properly, will cost you a lot more money than you imagine.
It’s much worse to do nothing. In Texas, all tickets have an “appearance date” marked on them. You must “appear” on or before this date, as required by law. If you do not comply, a warrant for your arrest will be issued. The officer will ask you to sign the ticket after it has been issued. This signature isn’t an admission of guilt; rather, it’s a promise to the courts that you’ll “appear” on or before the specified date.
