Why should I hire a lawyer? Shouldn't I just plead guilty?When you receive a traffic ticket, there are two major consequences besides the fines and court costs. Most traffic tickets carry points. If you get too many points within 18 months, you will lose your license. The state also imposes an additional monetary penalty of at least $300.00 if you get 6 points or more within 18 months. The other major concern is your car insurance. A single moving violation could cause your rates to be increased by up to 50% for 3 years and 3 months.
