Traffic Violations May Have More Consequences Than You Think

A traffic offense may seem petty and not worth the cost of getting legal help. You may want to just pay the ticket and get it over with, rather than take time off from work to go into court and fight the charge. While this may seem like the easy and maybe even responsible way out, it is only for the moment. Courts must report traffic convictions to the Bureau of Motor Vehicle (BMV), and these convictions then appear on your permanent driving record.

Do you know that the traffic convictions that you have now, along with those that you may get in the future, can raise your insurance rates, require you to take a driver’s safety course, result in high reinstatement fees, make you a habitual traffic violator (HTV), and suspend your driving privileges?

For most people, driving is an essential part of their daily life. The prospect of losing the right to drive because of traffic tickets can cause tremendous anxiety and stress. Without question, losing your right to drive will greatly impact your life.
