Traffic Violations

It Makes Sense To Fight Traffic Violations

Many of us know that sinking feeling when we see the flashing lights in our rearview mirror. Whether you have a brake light out, expired license tabs or have been speeding, being pulled over for a traffic violation is an unpleasant experience. It can also be expensive and may even threaten your driving privileges.

There are many traffic laws that, if violated, can result in driver’s license suspension or revocation. Our criminal defense attorneys have experience in both criminal court and representing our clients at Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) hearings. The criminal defense attorneys at Maitland & English Law Firm, PLLC, represent North Carolina and out-of-state drivers with the following:

  • Driving while license revoked (DWLR) or DDR (driving during revocation) charges
  • Moving violations — Including reckless driving, failure to use turn signals, failure to yield, turning into the wrong lane, driving a car with burned-out headlights
  • Parking violations — Parking in a handicap spot without the required sticker, overdue parking meters or unpaid parking violation tickets
  • Texting while driving — A ban on sending or reading text messages and email messages while driving on a public street or highway; violation carries a $100 fine plus court costs

We Can Help Determine If Your Ticket Is Worth Fighting

Any conviction for speeding greater than 16 mph over the speed limit may result in a suspension of your driver’s license. A single speeding ticket may result in 10 penalty points to your record, which can mean an increase of up to 300% for the cost of motor vehicle insurance.

We welcome the opportunity to review your traffic violation situation and help you determine if hiring our experienced defense lawyers to fight the charge or get it reduced makes sense. Call 919-944-4757 or use our online contact form to schedule a meeting.
