Washington County Traffic Violations Attorney

If you have gotten a traffic violation in Washington County, you may wonder what your next steps should be.

  • Should you just pay for it?
  • Should you fight it in court?

Many people think they have to accept whatever the police officer said on the ticket, take the penalties, and lose the points on their license. However, that is not true. With a traffic violations attorney, you can fight against the charges. At SMT Legal, we will work to get the charges against you dropped or reduced so you can get back to living your life.

What Can Happen?

Traffic violations may seem like minor offenses, but you should take them seriously. Depending on the charge and whether or not you have had another ticket, you could be facing serious consequences. Our knowledgeable and experienced team understands the law and can successfully defend you if you are facing the following:

  • Speeding tickets
  • Red light/stop sign tickets
  • Reckless driving violations
  • Careless driving violations
  • Driving on the wrong side of the road
  • Improper passing
  • Failing to stop for a school bus
  • Cell phone tickets
  • High-speed violations
  • Hit and run charges
  • And more

The Consequences

Getting a traffic ticket can mean more than just some points on your license and a fine, though those are reason enough to fight a charge. You also need to consider the following:

  • The cost of traffic school
  • How much your insurance rates will go up
  • Loss of income if you lose your license

A traffic violation does not have to be serious (DUI or hit and run) for a person to lose their license or even face jail time. An accumulation of points on your license due to relatively minor violations can lead to serious consequences.

If a person accumulates six or more points against their license, the Pennsylvania DOT will take corrective actions. This can include:

  • Taking a written exam that can remove points – or face license suspension
  • Taking a road driving test along with a license suspension
  • A DOT hearing

Getting to the six-point level is not difficult. It could be a general speeding ticket (2 points) along with improper passing on a hill (4 points). Failing to stop for a school bus with flashing red lights will land you with 5 points against your license.

How We Can Help

If you are facing a traffic violation and you want to avoid the fees and points that come with the charges, you should seek legal assistance. We realize that these charges could jeopardize your financial livelihood as well as your ability to drive legally. We do not want to see anyone face financial jeopardy or the possibility of losing their job due to a traffic violation.
