Experienced Defense Against Traffic Violation Charges
You do not simply have to admit your guilt and pay a traffic ticket. You have the right to defend yourself against them. While the consequences of a traffic violation, such as a speeding ticket or a citation for reckless driving, may seem relatively minor, they can have lasting consequences on your insurance rates and on your driving record. We will fight to help you minimize those consequences. We are the defense attorneys of Jim Ryan & Associates.
Why You Need A Skilled Attorney On Your Side
The immediate consequence of a traffic ticket is typically a fine and points being added to your driving record. Fines for traffic violations can be extremely expensive, but they are not the only potential consequence — they may not even be the worst.
Conviction for a traffic violation — which is what you get when you pay your ticket — will likely cause your insurance payments to increase drastically. The extra cost to your car insurance could cost you much more over time than even a very expensive traffic ticket.
If you are a commercial driver or you rely on your car to get to work, losing your license could cost you a lot more than money.
A conviction for reckless driving puts 55 points on your record. According to the Illinois Department of Motor Vehicles, only 100 points — or three convictions for traffic violations in any 12-month period — could mean a year’s suspension of your driver’s license. If your driver’s license has already been suspended within the last 7 years, it only takes 75 points to get your license suspended for a year.
