Question

How do I keep a traffic ticket off my record?

Answer

If you are wondering how to keep traffic violation off record, then you have probably recently been cited for some kind of traffic violation. The fines, penalties and skyrocketing insurance rates associated with traffic tickets are the last thing anyone wants to spend hard earned money on. Finding ways to minimize the impact of an unfortunate ticket issuance can save you money and time.

Keeping Tickets off Your Driving Record

You need to inquire with the issuing government regarding the options available given the type of ticket you received, programs available in the municipality and your driving record. In most states, you can go to "traffic school" if you have not received a ticket recently. Attending traffic school (either in person or online) allows the violator to keep the ticket from impacting their insurance rates and driving record. This can save you money on insurance premiums.

Getting Legal Advice

If you need help figuring out how to minimize the negative impact of a traffic ticket you recently received, you can talk to an experienced attorney who works on traffic violation cases and get the answers to your questions. An attorney can help prepare you for your hearing date and can advise you of viable lines of defense.
