What Is at Stake with a Driving Violation in Washington?
Getting a traffic ticket or facing charges for other types of driving violations represent more than just a bill for bad behavior. They also come with long-term penalties.
Traffic infractions can result in:
- Large fines
- Marks on your driving record
- Mandatory community service
- Suspension of license (for repeated or serious offenses)
- Raised insurance rates for up to seven years
- Hours spent in traffic school
- Jail time (in extreme cases)
When you think of traffic tickets, speeding probably comes to mind. Other common reasons for traffic tickets include driving without a license, driving without adequate insurance, reckless driving, or driving under the influence.
Act Right Away
Once you receive your traffic ticket, it is imperative that you respond within 15 days. Delaying could result in license suspension or other penalties. Additionally, if you do not pay your fines on time and forfeit your right to dispute the accusations, you could be charged with hefty late fees. That is why you should contact our team as soon as possible. With proper legal guidance, there may be a way to avoid paying that citation.
