Have you ever noticed how you seem to see more and more vehicles pulled over by the police towards the end of the month? While it may be true that police officers have monthly quotas to meet, you shouldn’t assume that you are safe (or not safe) to speed at certain times.
Speeding tickets are a pain in the behind, no doubt about it. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t fight for your driving rights. When it comes to a traffic ticket, for lets say a speeding violation, it may seem easier and less time-consuming to just pay it and get it over with. The downside is, by doing so you will affect your future insurance costs and accrue points on your license. You would be surprised at how often people lose track of how many points they have on their driving record. If you have been stopped by a cop for speeding or any other type of moving violation, you should always contact an attorney with a solid background in fighting traffic tickets.
Multiple speeding tickets over a short length of time can result in the loss of your driver’s license. Can you imagine if you were a commercial driver? The potential loss of your Commercial Driver’s License could mean the loss of your livelihood. We all speed on the highway at some point or another. It’s just a matter of time before the law catches up to us. So yes, please be on the lookout for speed traps (especially towards the last week of the month), but try not to stress over it. A traffic violation isn’t the end of the world, as long as you stay on top of it and take care of it with the advice of your lawyer.
