Individuals often think that they can handle traffic tickets themselves, but are often unaware of the serious consequences that are at stake and should consult a traffic lawyer. In addition to receiving driving points with the DMV (which points can lead to a loss of license), many charges directly affect how much insurance companies decide to raise your rates. Although the results vary from insurance company to insurance company, generally speaking many insurance companies raise insurance roughly 10% for each DMV point recorded as a result of a charge. For example, pleading to a 65 MPH speed in a 55 carries with it 3 DMV points. This means an anticipated 30% increase in insurance is possible. D.A.’s are not required to inform defendants of this issue as it is not an issue for the court system. Traffic lawyers can make a big difference. Nevertheless many people simply pay traffic ticket off (plead guilty) oblivious to the lasting impact it has on their insurance. It is strongly recommended that they obtain a N.C. traffic ticket attorney and traffic ticket lawyer
