Know The Risks Of Paying A Speeding Ticket
At Paul Kubosh, Attorney at Law, one of the most common traffic offenses we defend is speeding tickets. If you have received a speeding ticket in Harris County or the surrounding areas, you may be wondering if and how you can fight it. Law enforcement officials may encourage you to pay the ticket right away to avoid extra fines. However, paying the ticket is not your only option, despite what they may tell you.
If you pay the ticket, you are essentially pleading guilty. You will either incur points on your driving record or you will go to traffic school to avoid the points. Alternatively, you can plead not guilty and hire a lawyer to help you fight the ticket.
Should I Fight My Speeding Ticket?
It is understandable if you are unsure whether it is worth it or not to fight your ticket. We are here to ensure you understand both your rights and legal options when you have received a speeding ticket.
The first factor to consider is how fast the ticket alleges you were going over the speed limit, as this can greatly impact the exact consequences you face. If you decide to fight your ticket, you will need to appear in court and should have an attorney on your side.
Depending on the circumstances of the ticket, you could be facing the following penalties:
- License suspension
- Points on your license
- Raised insurance rates
- Significant fines
- License revocation
