Should one fight a traffic ticket?

| May 17, 2018 | Criminal Defense |

Getting a traffic ticket in New York can ruin one’s day and cost a significant amount of money in fines and result in an increase in insurance premiums. One may be wondering whether fighting the ticket is a good idea. In some cases, taking time off work to go to a hearing can cost one more money than the ticket itself, making it disadvantageous to fight. However, if one’s traffic ticket is costing thousands of dollars, defending oneself may be the best option.

There are many defenses to fight a traffic ticket. For example, if the accused delayed a court date or chose a date closer to a holiday, it may be less likely that the police officer who pulled the accused over shows up in court. If the officer does not show up, the ticket will most likely be eliminated.
