Paying a traffic ticket can have penalties much more serious than the dent it makes in your checking account. You may also accumulate points on your driving record, which can cause your insurance rates to go up and even result in suspension of your drivers’ license.
We are experienced in handling all types of Delaware traffic violations, including:
- Speeding violations, which can result in two points, five points or a suspended license depending on how many miles per hour you were over the limit
- Inattentive or careless driving, which Delaware police officers commonly charge in accident cases − even if the accident was just an accident
- Reckless driving
- Improper passing
- School bus violations, such as failing to stop when the stop arm is extended
- Driving while suspended, which can result in 60 days in jail for a second offense
- Driving without insurance, which can result in a six-month loss of license plus a $2,000 fine
In Delaware, your drivers’ license is subject to review by the Department of Motor Vehicles if you accumulate 10 or more points in two years. Insurance companies regularly do audits of driving records, so having points on your record can also result in higher rates or even make it hard for you to get car insurance.
Hiring a defense lawyer doesn’t always mean that you can beat a traffic ticket. However, we can often negotiate with prosecutors to reduce the ticket to an offense that would result in fewer points or no points on your driving record.
If you have received a traffic ticket, we would like to meet with you in person to discuss your case. To schedule a free initial consultation at our Georgetown office, please call 302-855-9300, in our Dover or Wilmington Office by calling 302-697-2499 or fill out the contact form on this site.
