Traffic ChargesSpringfield, MO
Traffic violations refer to any traffic incident that is not alcohol-related, from speeding to improper lane changes, missed stop signs to turning without signaling, and everything in between.
Sometimes, even small cases require a big lawyer.
When it comes to traffic charges, there is a considerable temptation to pay the ticket and move on. And no wonder. The Law Enforcement Officers in charge of traffic enforcement make it seem so easy—just mail in a payment and put it behind you. Why make an issue of it?
Here’s why: because just mailing in that fine can have far-reaching and unforeseen consequences.
Insurance rates can go up (and insurance companies have long memories—yours may never “forgive” or treat you the same again). You’ll also get points assessed against your license. That may not seem important in the moment, but the truth is that points are precious. After all, you can’t predict the future when it comes to points against your license, and a particularly unlucky week may leave you facing some serious consequences.
This is especially true for cases related to minors in possession of alcohol. In Missouri, these charges can affect your driver’s license even if you weren’t in a car at the time.
The reality is that everybody should get an attorney on every traffic case. It’s quite simply the smart thing to do in a situation that seems small, but can have serious and long-lasting consequences.
And since you have the foresight to get a lawyer to help you with your traffic violation, why not pick one that doesn’t flinch in the face of even the biggest cases. It may seem like overkill to have a trial attorney with the experience and skill of Dean Price to handle a traffic violation, but this is your future, your life, and your license. Overkill is exactly what you need.
When it comes to dealing with traffic charges, just remember two things:
