Do I Need A Traffic Violations Lawyer?
Different traffic violations have different associated point values, and this becomes important because your license can be suspended if you receive too many points in a respective 12, 18, or 36-month period. While you will only be assessed three points for a child restraint violation or speeding ticket involving 15 miles per hour or less over the lawful or posted speed limit, leaving the scene of an accident resulting in property damage of more than $50 will result in six points being added to your record, so violations can quickly add up.
Your license could be suspended for 30 days for 12 or more points in a 12-month period, 90 days for 18 or more points in an 18-month period, and one year for 24 or more points in a 36-month period. A criminal defense attorney can fight to have your charges dismissed or possibly negotiate alternative penalties that allow you to avoid points being added to your record.
