Did you get a traffic ticket in Mecklenburg County? Traffic tickets, especially moving violations such as speeding tickets, can be very expensive. The true cost of your traffic ticket is much more than your fine. Not only will you be assessed court costs, which are way more expensive that the fine itself, but your insurance rates will typically increase.
If you get a speeding ticket in Mecklenburg County, you can expect to have points assessed against your insurance. These points are different than the points that are assessed against your driver’s license. Depending on your driving record, a traffic lawyer in Mecklenburg County may be able to have your speeding ticket reduced to a non-moving violation. A non-moving violation, such as improper equipment, prevents your insurance rates from increasing because no points are assessed against your insurance. Although the court costs and fines associated with an improper equipment violation are currently $263.00 in Mecklenburg County, preventing your insurance rates from increasing will save you hundreds of dollars or more over the long term. Plus, this keeps points off your insurance in the case of future traffic violations.
