Fighting Traffic Tickets
There are many reasons people choose to fight traffic tickets. The majority of these reasons are based around financial lose, consequences of conviction, lose of demerit points or license and concern over increased insurance rates.
The penalties of traffic offences can be very steep and include citations, monetary fines, demerit points, jail time, and lose or suspension of your drivers license. In almost all cases when you are found guilty of traffic offences your insurance costs will increase, sometimes dramatically. Even if you fight your traffic ticket and lose you still may be able to get a reduced fine, or even have the charges against you downgraded.
When you are deciding if you should fight your traffic ticket there are some important things that you should consider. First of all you should decide if you are actually guilty of the crime that you have been accused of. You will also need to prepare your defense before heading to court. You will need to explain why you did what you did and your reasoning for that.
