The truth is, however, that some tickets can have far ranging effects on you. Many people know that speeding tickets bring points with them that, when accumulated, can cause you to lose your license, but most people don’t know, or don’t realize, that many non-speeding tickets come with points too, often as many as a major speeding offense. Some other tickets bring with them an automatic license suspension all by themselves. If you simply plead guilty to such a ticket, you won’t know the consequences until you get your letter in the mail from the state telling you when you need to turn in your license to begin your suspension.
The police officer giving you the ticket won’t tell you how many points a ticket has or whether it brings an automatic license suspension. Neither will the Magistrate Judge or their office staff. Several times a year I end up with people sitting across my conference room table looking to hire me to help them with a driver's license suspension that they could have avoided simply by talking to an experienced traffic ticket defense attorney before they pled guilty.
And that is my advice to you – before you plead guilty to a traffic offense, make an appointment, sit down with an attorney for a no obligation consultation and make sure that you aren’t about to do something with unknown consequences.
Call Amori & Associates today at (570) 421-1406 for an appointment. Those few dollars spent up front can save you hundreds of dollars after the fact and a license suspension that you really can’t afford.
