Customer Question

I am charged with NC 20-154 violation. There was no other car involved and there was no property damage. There is no lawsuit pending. How many DMV points will I get if pleading guilty and should I hire an attorney to try and get a lesser charge with no points. I went through a yellow light.

Hello, From what I can see on the NC chart, this looks to be a 2 point offense if you plead guilty. See page 2 of the attached point schedule. Traffic lawyers work before traffic judges all the time and can sometimes work miracles. If they can't get the case dismissed, they can usually negotiate a reduction in the points and fine.
