Receiving a traffic citation can be, at the very least, frustrating. Make no mistake, North Carolina’s traffic citation laws are designed to punish you. Gone are the days when you could pay a simple $25 fine and be on your way. A simple traffic ticket can lead to:

  • Court costs of at least $180
  • A fine of $25 or more
  • Drivers License points – enough of these can cause you to lose your drivers license!
  • Insurance Points – even 1 point is a mandatory increase in your insurance rates!
  • In severe cases, traffic issues can mean high fines, steep increases in insurance costs ― and even the immediate loss of your drivers license.

Because of North Carolina’s traffic citation laws, you’re going to spend a couple hundred dollars on just a simple speeding ticket – even if you handle this yourself! Wouldn’t it be better to spend a little more and hire an attorney to make sure that it’s done right and that you get the best possible outcome?
