How To Fight A Speeding Ticket
When you receive a speeding ticket, you may automatically pay it without a second thought. However, you may end up paying thousands of extra dollars in raised insurance for several years due to that one ticket. A traffic lawyer may be able to help you avoid conviction or reduce your fines, saving you money in the long run.
Virginia Speeding Ticket Consequences
In Virginia, a speeding ticket is a minor infraction, but can prove very expensive. If you are a young, male driver, for example, a speeding ticket can double your insurance premiums or you may even lose coverage – after paying more than $250 in court fines and fees. Additionally, judges often administer a stricter punishment if you have a history of speeding.
Pre-Paying a Speeding Ticket
When you pre-pay your ticket, you don’t have to take time out of your schedule to go to court. HOWEVER, if you pre-pay, you have no chance of having the charge reduced or dismissed. If you do decide to pre-pay the fine, the court will still make you pay court costs in addition to the fine for speeding, even though you didn’t go to court. By paying the ticket ahead of time you end up paying more money. A speeding ticket isn’t the only offense that has this effect. Click here for more intofmation on how to fight All Traffic Offenses.
