Negative Consequences of Paying Your Ticket Client-Focused. Relentless Advocacy.

Should I Pay My Traffic Ticket?

Information from Our Fayetteville Traffic Ticket Lawyer

After being cited for a traffic offense, you may not know which legal direction to take to beat your ticket. It may seem like the easier option is to just pay the ticket and put the whole matter behind you. That is not always the best option, however.

Tickets are often handed out in situations when the officer knows that the ticket can be beat if the driver puts up a fight, but that very few individuals actually will contest the ticket. Negative consequences can occur if you simply pay your traffic ticket without first assessing all of your options.

If you do not fight the ticket, some of the negative consequences that could result include:

  • Lose your driving privileges
  • Paying for higher insurance premiums
  • Paying a hefty fine
  • Having the ticket appear on your driving record
  • Spending money / hours in traffic school to clear your record
