If you have been cited with a traffic violation, it is imperative that you retain an attorney to defend your rights. If a traffic ticket is not contested, it is automatically placed on your driving record, resulting in further potential consequences, such as suspension or revocation of driving privileges, and possible higher insurance rates. Despite this, only a small percentage of drivers actually challenge traffic tickets.
When a traffic violation conviction is placed on your driving record, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will assign demerit points to your driver’s license. The points are set forth in the Section 46.2-492 of the Code of Virginia, and are based upon the severity of the traffic violation.
When too many points accumulate, your driver’s license may be suspended or revoked, you may be required to submit to further driver training classes, and your insurance rates will likely increase. Therefore, it is critical to take advantage of your right to contest every traffic ticket you receive, and to have experienced traffic/speeding ticket defense attorney represent you.
