Receiving a traffic ticket may ruin your day. But don’t let it ruin your driving record, too. It rarely makes sense to plead guilty to what you have been charged with in the case of a traffic ticket. Not only might your insurance premiums go up and you have to pay more each payment to drive your car, but you also lose the clean driving record you may have had before the ticket. Moreover, pleading guilty in a severe case may even cause you to lose your license, send you to jail, or result in your car being confiscated.
A knowledgeable and caring attorney can review your case, decide what is in your best interest and increase your chances of winning. An attorney can help you plead to lesser charges, obtain a prayer for judgment continued (PJC) or attempt to get the ticket dismissed altogether — saving you the money you would pay for increased insurance premiums and a day at the courthouse! It is essential to get an attorney involved as soon as possible after receiving a ticket so that he or she can make sure to review your driving record and decide what is best for you.
