Helping You Contest Red-Light Violations
When you learn how to drive, one of the first rules is not to run red lights. It seems like a simple law that should not draw much attention, especially during certain hours or when the streets aren’t busy. However, law enforcement goes to great lengths to penalize violations.
If you are pulled over and given a ticket for running a red light or receive a violation notice in the mail from a red-light camera, our Harris County traffic ticket attorneys at Paul Kubosh, Attorney at Law, can help. We have more than 50 years of combined experience in the field and are prepared to defend your violation.
Accused Of Running A Red Light?
Running a red light may not seem like it will affect you negatively. Depending on the circumstances, red-light violations can lead to varied consequences, however. It is very important that you understand not to plead guilty or admit to anything until you have a lawyer present.
There are a number of different defense strategies we may use to fight your ticket, including:
- Technological components to red-light camera tickets, such as clerical errors or computer errors.
- Evidence that you had an alibi at the time of the ticket, such as proof you were not in town.
- The sun was in your eye or there was some other type of obstruction that kept you from seeing the light.
Do Not Ignore Your Red-Light Ticket
Being stopped for running a red light can lead to a steep fine, points on your license and a potential increase in insurance rates. If you have other infractions on your driving record, your license could be suspended. This is why it is so important that you hire a lawyer to defend you.
