Traffic Citations in Georgetown
Have you been cited for a traffic violation in Williamson County? You may have been given a speeding ticket or a ticket for any type of moving violation, such as a failure to stop at a stop sign or traffic signal, tailgating, or other illegal maneuvers. Other traffic violations include reckless driving, failure to maintain financial responsibility, hit and run, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or driving with a license that is suspended or revoked. As a Georgetown criminal defense lawyer, I can represent you in fighting the charges of traffic violations and in helping you keep your record clean.
By paying the fines of your traffic ticket, you are pleading guilty, which could result in points being assessed by the state to your driving record. By accumulating points to your record, you might be required to pay the state a yearly surcharge for three years in order to keep your license. Assessed points could also cause your insurance premiums to be increased.
Driving Without Insurance or a Valid License
If you are convicted of a no insurance ticket, otherwise known as a failure to maintain financial responsibility, you face a driver's license suspension along with state surcharges. It is important in these cases to get the legal help you need. If you are convicted of driving with a suspended license, you could be charged with a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $2,000 and a jail term of up to 180 days. Because of the seriousness of the penalties involved in these types of traffic citations, I recommend that you contact me immediately so I can get started on handling your case.
