Speeding Violations, Traffic Tickets
Even though most traffic violations are not criminal offenses, using a lawyer to resolve a traffic ticket could save you time, money, and potentially your driver’s license. The law office of Sallynda Rothchild Dennison, Attorney at Law, in Columbus, Ohio, is committed to minimizing the effect of traffic tickets on your life. The Columbus law firm often represents out-of-state and out-of-town drivers who are ticketed while driving through Columbus. In most cases, lawyer Sallynda Rothchild Dennison can make all necessary court appearances without the need for you to take time off from work to return to Columbus.
Many people simply pay traffic tickets without realizing the damaging effect that could have on their driver’s license and insurance rates. Every traffic ticket has a point value that will be subtracted from your Ohio driver’s license. If you lose 12 or more points in a two-year period, you face a six-month suspension of your license. You also will have to take a remedial driving course, pay three years of surcharges, and acquire high-risk auto insurance once your driver’s license is reinstated. An attorney may be able to negotiate a reduction in the traffic offense to one that will result in fewer points being subtracted from your driver’s license.
For commercial truck drivers, the consequences of a traffic violation can be even more severe. Commercial carriers are often issued multiple tickets in traffic stops. The resulting fines can add up to thousands of dollars and threaten a truck driver’s ability to earn a living. If you have received multiple tickets in a single traffic stop, an attorney may be able to get some of those tickets dismissed.
