Keeping Your Driving Record Clean

Traffic violations have a way of catching you off guard. One minute you're on your way to school, or work, or the grocery store, and the next minute you see flashing lights in your rearview mirror — that's all it takes to ruin a perfectly good day with the stress and inconvenience of the traffic stop and a ticket. Traffic violations are common and can happen to anyone, but that is scant consolation as you wonder if you'll be late to work, and whether your insurance rate will go up.

Some traffic violations are civil matters, while others are criminal matters, but they can still cause you a headache in the form of fines, increased insurance rates, or even license suspension. The headache is even worse if you're a commercial driver who depends on his license for his income.

Many drivers just accept the penalties for a traffic violation and try to move on, but it's important to understand that there are other options. By consulting with an experienced attorney, you might be able to reduce your penalty.
