You just got a ticket, ugh. Yeah, it’s frustrating, but you don’t have to go at it alone. Sure, you could just pay the fine and move on with your life – but think about what will happen to your insurance premium, and not to mention the points added to your license.

Knowing when to fight a traffic ticket could end up saving you hundreds of dollars for the offense itself and perhaps even more on your car insurance down the road. But how do you know when to fight, and if you do fight it, when to hire a lawyer?
The National Motorists Association recommends drivers not facing a DUI, reckless driving or other charge that could carry serious penalties including jail time, to make an appearance in court and do battle. What about hiring an attorney? Look at the financial bottom line and consider the other points of interest. Do you work in an industry in which a clean driving record is necessary, like as a CDL driver? As a CDL driver, any moving violation can jeopardize your ability to work. Does your job allow for the time off required of fighting a ticket in person, by yourself? Does your age demographic suggest a large jump in premium due to a driving infraction? We also recommend checking with your insurance carrier, as a moving violation can boost an average premium by about 22%. That’s a lot.
These facts alone are motivation to seek your day in court, but remember, you don’t have to go at it alone. TicketRX is here to help!
