These penalties include:
- Points on your driver's license,
- License suspension, and

In some cases, you may be able to contest the traffic ticket.
Contesting a Traffic Ticket
To contest a traffic ticket, you will need to appear in court and present your case to the judge. You should dress professionally and if you have retained an attorney, have them accompany you to the hearing.
It is essential to have an attorney represent you in court, as they will be able to navigate the legal system and ensure that your rights are protected. If you are charged with a traffic crime, you should always consult with an attorney before paying the fine and accepting guilt. This can help you from making any mistakes that might harm your case.
