Benefits Of Challenging A Traffic Ticket

Traffic tickets may seem to be a nuisance for Virginia drivers, but they exist for a reason. It's all about safety. Many people get dinged with traffic tickets such as speeding, failure to yield, not stopping for pedestrians or driving through a red light. Most times, you can pay fines in the mail.

However, there are times when you will want to contest the violation. This is when you should contact Madigan and Scott, Inc., of Springfield.

  • Reduce your fine
  • Keep points off your driver's license
  • Help you avoid a license suspension
  • Help you avoid increased auto insurance rates
  • Get your tickets dismissed

Traffic Violations Can Lead To A Suspended Driver's License

If convicted of a traffic violation in the commonwealth of Virginia, you receive demerit points that stay on your record for two years. If you get 18 points in a year or 24 points in two years, your driver's license is suspended. The more severe the offense, the more demerit points you receive.

Here are a few of the violations for which a driver will receive demerit points:

  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving with a suspended license
  • Unsafe passing
  • Failure to yield
  • Failure to drive to the right and stop for an emergency vehicle
  • Improper U-turn
  • Coasting with gears in neutral
  • Driving without lights
  • Failure to dim headlights
  • Failure to obey highway signs
