Going to traffic court can save you from paying penalties

Imagine seeing a police officer's red and blue lights flashing behind you. You know you were speeding, and you pull over. You receive a ticket and go about your day.

Most people, like yourself, don't think that a traffic violation is a big deal. However, these seemingly simple violations do add up. They might start off as minor inconveniences, but in the long-term, they can impact many aspects of your life.

What are traffic violations?

Traffic violations are any violations of local, state or federal traffic laws. Common traffic violations include:

  • Driving with a burned-out headlight or tail light
  • Not paying overdue parking meters
  • Failing to yield
  • Speeding
  • Turning into the wrong lane
  • Parking in a spot assigned specifically to the handicapped or others

These are just a few of many violations you could be accused of.

When you receive a ticket, you have the opportunity to accept responsibility and pay it or to go to court to argue against the fine and penalties. Going to court is the only way to have the ticket dismissed completely, which is possible depending on the evidence that is provided to the court.

If you choose to go to court to defend yourself, you should make sure that you're prepared. Make sure you go to court on time and are dressed professionally. It's a good idea to get the advice of an attorney at the very least, too, so that you are prepared for any questions that the judge may ask you. Preparing in advance can help you fight against the penalties you face.
