Traffic Cases We Handle

You may receive a traffic ticket for failing to stop at a red light, speeding in a school zone, and for fleeing the scene of an accident, among other offenses.

Practicing Law Across Many Areas

North Carolina penalizes drivers who commit moving violations (unlawful conduct while the car is in motion) and non-moving violations (unlawful conduct while the car is stationary). You may receive a traffic ticket for failing to stop at a red light, speeding in a school zone, and for fleeing the scene of an accident, among other offenses. Each violation varies in severity and holds its own penalties ranging from fines to license suspension to driver’s license points to insurance points. Some common concerns that a traffic lawyer can help you resolve include those related to:

  • Suspended license – North Carolina currently offers few public transportation options, making driving privileges essential to residents' work and private lives.
  • Failure to Appear – Failing to appear for a ticket or other traffic violation hearing can result in additional fines and penalties.
  • Insurance points – Numerous moving and non-moving violations in North Carolina can lead to the leveling of insurance points by traffic courts.
  • Out-of-state drivers – Out-of-state drivers who receive traffic tickets in North Carolina face a range of legal and economic challenges both in North Carolina and in their home state.
  • DWI – Impaired driving carries administrative penalties like driver’s license points and license suspension as well as criminal penalties.

The consequences of a traffic ticket can increase your insurance rates and DMV points, resulting in expensive fines and months of license suspension. Before pleading guilty to a charge and succumbing to these penalties, consider speaking to a lawyer first about your chances of requesting a reduction or dismissal. You might have a higher chance than you’d think of minimizing the consequences simply by having your attorney go to court.
