The real cost of a traffic ticket in Huntersville, NC is much more than the $30 or so fine. The true cost, over the course of the next three years, is going to be more like $1600. Your $30 traffic ticket for speeding also requires you to pay for court costs, which are usually $188. Additionally, if convicted for a moving violation, you'll be assessed points against your driving record and insurance points. These points will cause your insurance rates to increase dramatically over the next three years. Thus, with the additional court costs and insurance expenses, your traffic ticket will really cost you closer to $1600 than the nominal fine.
Why are you telling me this? Primarily because a traffic attorney may be able to negotiate a better deal for you and avoid having points assessed against your license. Hiring an experienced traffic lawyer in Huntersville, NC for a traffic ticket will ensure that someone is trying to get you a better deal. Simply paying the fine and court costs will earn you a conviction on your driving record and an increase in insurance rates (for moving violations). A traffic lawyer may be able to negotiate your ticket to a non-moving violation such as improper equipment or at least get you a reduction in speed. Paying a traffic ticket attorney to do this for you may potentially save you a lot of money. Additionally, if your traffic ticket lawyer is able to have the ticket voluntarily dismissed, you won't be responsible for the fine and court costs. Instead, all you will pay is your attorney fees.
