Have Traffic Law Questions? Ask a Traffic Lawyer Online.
Good afternoon, I am an attorney expert with the JustAnswer website, and former Prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office. I have a near 100% customer satisfaction rate, and I'll be answering your questions today. Keep in mind this is for informational purposes only and we do not have an attorney-client relationship. Please allow me just a few minutes to review your question, thank you!
I' m sorry to hear that happened.
Unfortunaltey not knowing the law is not a viable defense. You could still however elect to hire traffic lawyer to appear at the court date on your behalf, and contest the ticket.
There's a possibility that the officer may not show up to court, in which case the ticket would be dismissed. There's also the possibility that the judge will use his discretion to reduce the ticket and assess a lesser fee due to you not knowing the law, especially if you have a fairly clean driving record.
If you elect to pay the fine outright, the fee is $275 and there will be 3 points assessed to your license.
I hope that helps!Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
Have you previously elected to attend traffic school? If not, then you can elect to do so, pay the ticket, and this would avoid points being assessed to your license.
I hope that helps! Let me know if you still have any questions.
Please take a moment to leave a positive rating for me, 5 stars are always appreciated, thanks!
