Why Hiring A Young Harris Traffic Ticket Attorney Is Important
Just paying your ticket leads to a conviction on your driving document, but they do not tell you that. Uploading a bond removes the warrant for your apprehension, as well as resets the situation for another day in court. Let us help you eliminate your warrants as well as maintain your driving record clear.
Also, if you hold an commercial vehicle driver’s certificate, or if your offense happened in a construction area when employees were present, there are unique restrictions. The legislature has actually taken away a number of crucial choices. As an example, you can not get defensive driving or for deferred personality. Deferred personality is a sort of postponed adjudication, where your offense is disregarded if you please court-ordered terms of without supervision probation.
Rather, if you hold an industrial chauffeur’s certificate or are mentioned for speeding in a construction zone with employees present with any sort of motorist’s permit, you have to battle more challenging to safeguard yourself in Young Harris GA. This might include multiple journeys to the Young Harris courthouse, finishing with a court trial or a termination if you are fortunate. We comprehend that your driving document can affect your income as well as your insurance coverage rates.
We know that also for non-commercial chauffeurs, companies commonly draw your driving document when you make an application for a work. We are dedicated to fighting your situation as tough as possible.
What Can a Traffic Lawyer Do for You?
So, you are caught and given a speeding ticket. Knowing how to fight a speeding ticket is very important right from the beginning of the flagging down. What do you do when the officer hands you a speeding ticket?
Let us look at the basic options we have:
Accept that the infraction has been committed and pay the fine charged. However, remember, the buck does not stop here with this option. If you think, 'What the heck - it is only $100. Let it go and get over with it!' - I have news for you. With every speeding ticket you accept and pay for, you will have more to pay in insurance for your vehicle. The insurance company will see you as a potential risk and hence, hike the premium a few notches, which in the long run will burn a neat hole in your pocket.
Accept the infraction but give a plausible explanation, which justifies (in your mind) the speeding. This will definitely bring down the charges in terms of the fine - BUT you will still go on record as speeding and hence, the insurance company will still know about it. Hence, this is actually not really a good option in case you want to save money.
That leaves us with only one way to go - plead 'Not guilty' and asking for a trial. Here, if you are extra lucky, the officer who issued you the speeding ticket might not turn up (which happens in about 20-30% of the cases) and then the charges would be dropped. In case he/she does show up, then most of the cases need little preparation (individually or with the help of a lawyer) to win the case. Lastly, if everything goes wrong, you will be found guilty and you will be marked as such. However, at least you tried! The cost of the ticket at the end of the trial - even if you lose - will not be any more than at the beginning. So, make sure you do exhaust all your chances before you pay up the speeding ticket.
In order to make your case stronger you could and should prepare as thoroughly as it is possible for you:a. Use statement of witnesses who could support your interpretation of events. Present photographs is any of the place where you were flagged down, which can show clearly potholes, of poor signs, etc which can help your casec. Try to prove that the view of the officer was too obscured to get an accurate reading - this is the best one used - and hence, the violation was recorded wrongly. Use the circumstantial evidence available with you to prove you could not aware of the speed limit in the area
Traffic Ticket Lawyer - How He Can Help You
As someone who regularly drives in many parts of the country, I was interested to compare the results of the most recent TomTom Traffic Index study with my own experiences.
For example, I have long had a very healthy respect, if that's the right word, for Miami traffic. The city's expressways regularly gridlock every afternoon, although for those who are affluent or desperate enough to pay the congestion-price-based tolls, express lanes offer relief. So does the cashless SunPass tolling system. Without those pressure valves, the place would be an utter nightmare. As it is, it clocks into TomTom's list of the most congested U.S. cities at number seven.
For all that, I think Atlanta's traffic is even worse, even though TomTom ranks it lower, at 13. The exception? During any bout of snow, sleet or freezing rain, Atlanta's traffic moves from "worse" to "literally life-threatening." Atlanta may be the only place in America where somebody might actually risk dying on an urban freeway someday due not to a crash, but to a protracted absence of movement.
Of course Los Angeles traffic is notoriously bad, so it is probably no surprise it takes the dubious honor of the top spot on the list. The traffic of Silicon Valley, which is to say that of fifth-place San Jose, is equally well-bemoaned. And one rush-hour visit last summer to Seattle, number four, was enough to last me a long time.
You expect traffic headaches from the West Coast metropolises, where urban planners of the past more or less stopped trying to keep up with fast growth. But Portland, Oregon, is a surprise. They don't allow growth in Oregon. Seriously, you could get elected in that state by promising to build a wall and make California pay for it. But people have a way of sneaking past borders anyway, and in Oregon, so does growth - and, apparently, traffic, as Portland squeezed into the top 10.
New York is probably the place that least deserves its spot on the list, as well as the place that deserves it most - for somewhat different reasons. The city and surrounding suburbs offer one of the densest, most popular and most costly mass transit systems in North America - and also the most heavily used, by far. You can usually get where you need to go by public transportation anywhere in the greater New York City area. But still the region's highways remain jammed. To my surprise, largely because I don't have to commute on those roads, they remain even more jammed than those in Miami or Atlanta or Seattle, at least by TomTom's measurement.
How can this be, if so many New Yorkers are taking public transit? The answer is simple. The New York-New Jersey region has barely invested in its highways at all since the last World's Fair shut its gates. I won't make you look it up: That was in 1965.
The Major Deegan Expressway in the Bronx (most Americans would just call it Interstate 87) is three lanes wide and nearly always congested between Yankee Stadium and the George Washington Bridge. Those are the same three lanes of expressway that were available when I was a boy in a neighborhood alongside the Deegan, back when that World's Fair was operating. The city's population has grown by about 1 million since then. The city's number of cars has increased even faster. The capacity of the highway has not changed one single bit.
At least increased traffic in most other major cities is a byproduct of economic growth. In New York, it is simply a byproduct of not-very-benign neglect.In fairness, things could be worse. The TomTom study shows that American traffic is still way better than that of many other places in the world, particularly places that have seen recent economic and population growth. (A byproduct of places with stagnant or declining populations is that you can easily go wherever you want; you just probably don't want to go anywhere in particular.) Mexico City's drivers currently suffer the worst congestion, with those in Bangkok not far behind.
America's worst traffic city, LA, barely makes it into the top 10 as far as global traffic nightmares are concerned. Angelenos may find this knowledge small comfort as they sit on "the 10" (what most Americans would call Interstate 10) this morning. Or this afternoon. Or tonight. Or all of the above.
TomTom's survey also points out that diverting just a small share of the car traffic would benefit not only the diverted drivers and their passengers, but everyone still on the road at rush hour. The company's senior traffic expert, Nick Cohn, suggests strategies for individual drivers, but also emphasizes that larger, systemic changes will actually benefit city drivers most in the long run. That is a fair point in favor of mass transit investment, but probably an even fairer one for encouraging more business to allow people to work flexible hours or to work from home, or for putting workplaces closer to where people live and vice-versa.
So in a lot of places, traffic is bad and getting worse; in some, it is worse than ever. But it could always be worse, as a children's book, frequently called upon in our household when my daughters were growing up, observed. At least these days we have satellite and Internet options galore to keep us entertained while we wait.Source:1) TomTom, " TomTom Traffic Index "
