Even minor traffic violations can carry heavy consequences that include steep fines, increased
insurance rates, license suspension, and jail time depending on the number of past offenses.
Most people assume it is more convenient to pay their ticket and move on without giving thought to
the long-term ramifications.
Guilty: Pleading guilty involves the admission of guilt and the
acceptance of all associated penalties. Paying a traffic ticket is the same as being found
guilty in court and will likely result in the maximum punishment.
explanation: While unlikely, in some situations providing a good reason for why you
violated the law can reduce your punishment. However, if the court does not accept your
excuse, you have effectively admitted guilt and will have to accept the consequences.
guilty: If you believe the traffic officer was in error when issuing the ticket or you
want to fight the charge, you may plead not guilty and argue your case in court. With the help
of an experienced speeding ticket lawyer in Essex County, you may avoid penalty and effectively
eliminate the violation from your driving record.
