Speeding tickets are a common traffic violation in Raeford and Fayetteville, North Carolina. Sometimes people think, “I’ll just pay it off. What’s the worst thing that can happen?”
Some traffic tickets may in fact be minor and deemed an “infraction.” On the other hand, a fair number of tickets, including some speeding tickets and allegations of reckless driving may be classified under the NC Motor Vehicle Laws as a “misdemeanor” criminal charge.
Our traffic ticket lawyers in Cumberland County, Hoke County and Moore County are here to help you navigate the legal system. It frankly can get real complicated, real fast.
Before paying off a ticket or pleading guilty to speeding, you should understand there can be insurance points, increased insurance premiums, and possible “points” issued by NCDMV.
There are important similarities and differences between “insurance points” in North Carolina and motor vehicle points as assessed by the NC Department of Transportation / Division of Motor Vehicles or “DMV.”
"Sometimes people don’t understand paying off a ticket is admitting responsibility if it’s an infraction. If It’s a criminal charge, that’s the same thing as pleading guilty."
- David Courie, Speeding Ticket Lawyer
Others simple get busy and forget the traffic ticket - or worse, ignore the speeding ticket, thinking, “It isn’t a great time for me financially right now. I’ll deal with it later.”
