Traffic tickets are not just a nuisance for drivers. They can have serious consequences and they are a billion-dollar industry. In South Carolina, the average traffic ticket fine is $120. The average court costs are around $60. Unfortunately, though, the fines are just the beginning of your troubles if you are found guilty of a traffic offense in South Carolina.
Ninety-five percent of drivers who receive traffic citations never go to court. They simply plead guilty, accept responsibility and pay their fine through the mail. It is in your best interest to consider fighting the charges. Call 803-407-4140 for a free, confidential consultation with a South Carolina traffic violation lawyer at Lord Law Firm, LLC.
Traffic Violation Defense You Can Count On In South Carolina
You may not realize that when you receive a citation for speeding, driving with a suspended license or DUI, points are applied to your driving record and your insurance premiums will increase. It is also important to remember that if you get too many points, your license can be suspended or even revoked.
