What To Do (And Not To Do) When You Get A Ticket
It’s not a good feeling when you’re driving down the road and you see the flashing lights of a police car right behind you. You move out of the way with the hope that he’ll go around you. Maybe? Hopefully? But NO! He’s pulling YOU over! You think, “Why me? What did I do…?”
We all hate getting pulled over because we know what’s coming – the dreaded traffic ticket!
On top of the fines and court costs that come with any moving violation, if you’re convicted, most moving violations such as SPEEDING, CARELESS DRIVING, IMPROPER PASSING, RECKLESS DRIVING, FAILURE TO MAINTAIN LANE, etc., give you “POINTS” on your license.
And the more “points” you get, the higher your insurance bill could go! You could also get SURCHARGES!
For more serious offenses like DWI, DRIVING WHILE SUSPENDED, DRIVING WITH NO INSURANCE, etc., not only are you facing fines, court costs, and surcharges, you also face a license suspension and even JAIL!
Traffic Court – What To Know!
When you get charged with a moving violation, whether it’s a speeding ticket or a DWI charge, your ticket will be handled by the Municipal Court in the township where you got the ticket. If you contest the charges, here’s who will be involved:
The Cop. First, there’s the Police Officer that issued you the ticket. On the day your case is scheduled for court he or she will be there to testify against you. And the Police Officer will review the evidence of your case with the Prosecutor…
The Prosecutor. The Prosecutor is the lawyer for the State. If, after reviewing the evidence, the Prosecutor concludes that there is probable cause to believe you violated the law, then he/she has an obligation to prosecute you as charged! Although the Prosecutor is a lawyer, he/she is NOT YOUR LAWYER and IS NOT obligated to protect your interest!
The Judge. After listening listening to the evidence at your trial, the Judge is the one that determines whether you’re guilty as charged.
