Fighting Traffic Charges To Keep Points Off Your License
If you have been pulled over for speeding or breaking another traffic law, it can be tempting to pay the fine and move on with your day. When you choose this option, you are admitting that you are guilty of committing a violation. What appears to be a quick and easy solution can cost you in the long run, however.
At Wilbanks Law Firm, we are ready to help you fight any traffic charges you face in the north Georgia area. Our founding attorney, Dylan Wilbanks, has practiced law in Georgia for nearly 20 years. He has helped countless residents and out-of-state drivers challenge charges that threaten their driving privileges.
The Costs Of Paying The Fine Can Be High
At first glance, choosing to pay a speeding or traffic ticket may seem to be the easy way out of a frustrating situation. There are consequences associated with paying a fine that you should know before you take this step.
Depending on your situation, you could face these additional penalties:
- Increased car insurance rates
- Points added to your license
- Temporary or permanent revocation of your license
- Disqualification from certain types of employment or schooling
If you are a commercial driver, having points on your license could put your job at risk. When you consider the costly repercussions of paying your ticket, you may realize that it makes sense to talk to an attorney about your case.
How We Can Help
When you work with our team, we will investigate the circumstances behind the charges, explain your choices and all possible consequences to help you decide on the best solution for your situation.
Dylan Wilbanks will explore all available options, which may include helping clients get charges dropped or reduced. For young drivers or others who are concerned about the accumulation of points — such as CDL holders — we are diligent in preserving the right to drive.
If you choose to fight the ticket in court, Dylan Wilbanks is qualified to represent you. You can depend on our legal team to craft an aggressive defense whether you have received a ticket for speeding, running a red light, driving on an expired license or other violation.
