There is almost no worse feeling than looking in your rearview mirror and seeing the flashing lights of a police car. Even worse, the vast majority of the time, the reason those lights are flashing is not a mystery. Nevada police officers are tough. These days, they are writing more and more tickets and giving fewer and fewer warnings. It is not uncommon to see speed traps where five to ten police cars from various jurisdictions are lined up to wait their turn to flash on their sirens and pull over the next unwitting motorist. While traffic tickets are meant to remind us to be safe on the roads and to impose a penalty to help us remember in the future, it is hard not to believe that they are also used to pad the coffers of the police departments and assist with budgetary shortfalls.
Unfortunately, traffic tickets are the gift that keeps on giving. Not only is there the possibility that a hefty fine will be imposed upon the receipt of a traffic ticket, upon having the traffic ticket adjudicated, your insurance rates are likely to skyrocket as well. And those insurance rates will remain high for years to come vastly multiplying the effect of receiving a traffic ticket.
At Smith Legal Group, we understand that traffic infractions happen. When we handle traffic tickets, in many cases we are able to get the fines reduced or eliminated. Moreover, even in cases where the judge is unwilling to waive the imposed fine, in many cases we can convince the Court to reduce the moving violation to a parking ticket. Such a result ensures that your insurance rates will no go up just because you had a momentary lapse of judgment on the road.
If you have received a traffic ticket and you want to avoid skyrocketing insurance rates, call Smith Legal Group today. We will evaluate your case and work to get your ticket resolved as painlessly as possible.
