Moving violations are tickets that are issued for traffic violations. In California the punishment for traffic violations can be strong. Traffic violations use the DMV point system. Any moving violation conviction will result in a point against your driver’s license. There are many types of traffic violations including the most common violations of speeding and going through a red light. If you have been issued a traffic violation, it may be well worth it to obtain a good attorney.
The penalties of traffic violations may include any or all of the following:
- DMV Point
- DMV Warning or Probation
- Driver’s License Suspension or Revocation
- Insurance Premium Increase or Cancellation
In many cases, a speed trap may have been used to issue your speeding ticket. If an illegal speed trap was used, your attorney may be able to prove this in court and get your ticket dismissed.
No matter why the ticket was issued, hiring a good attorney makes sense. The attorney will provide a vigorous defense. If necessary, your attorney will visit the scene where the ticket was issued to collect important information that can be used in your defense. Red light tickets are common but can be fought and won.
Your attorney knows the laws of the state and will be able to use this knowledge to your advantage when fighting your traffic charges.
