Why you should fight your Allen speeding ticket
Why is it important to fight your Allen speeding ticket? Simply paying your fine for a speeding ticket means that you agree that you are “guilty” of the charge. Being convicted of, or found guilty of a speeding ticket can have serious consequences. There are at least four (4) major reasons to fight an Allen speeding ticket.
First, fight your Allen speeding ticket to avoid paying a fine
If you are guilty, you must pay a monetary fine. Depending on the violation involved, the fine could be several hundred dollars. Hiring Todd E. Tkach to fight your Allen speeding ticket could result in a dismissal of the charges. In that event, you don’t have to pay any fine!!
Second, fight your Allen speeding ticket to avoid “points” on your driving record
The State of Texas has a “Point System” that affects your right to hold and maintain a Texas driver’s license. You are charged “Points” against your driving record if you are convicted of certain Allen speeding tickets. The number of “Points” charged varies depending on the type of violation you are given, but ranges from one (1) to six (6) points. A Texas driver gets 2 points for most traffic violation convictions (3 points if a crash is involved). “Points” remain on a driver’s record for 3 years. Accumulating points on your driving record can result in huge “surcharges” assessed by the Texas Department of Public Safety and a possible driver’s license suspension. Accumulating twenty-one (21) points in any three (3) year period will result in a suspension of your driver’s license. If that happens, you cannot legally drive an automobile in Texas. Let attorney Todd E. Tkach represent you on your Allen speeding tickets and protect your driver’s license.
Third, fight your Allen speeding ticket to avoid paying surcharges
Convictions of certain Allen speeding tickets can cost you “surcharges” imposed by the Texas Department of Public Safety. A yearly $100 surcharge is assessed for 6 Points on your driving record; with another $25 surcharge for each additional point. The surcharge continues to be assessed as long as the Points total 6 or more. Additionally, convictions for “no insurance” and “driving while license invalid” mandate a $750.00 surcharge each! Don’t risk being convicted of these violations. Call Todd E. Tkach now! We’ll fight for a dismissal of these Allen speeding tickets and the surcharges that accompany them. If we can’t obtain an outright dismissal, we’ll fight to get a dismissal through plea negotiations and keep the charges off your driving record.
Fourth, fight your Allen speeding ticket to stop insurance rate increases
Convictions of Allen speeding tickets can raise your automobile insurance rates. Many automobile insurance companies check your driving record before agreeing to insure you or renew your automobile insurance. Having “convictions” for speeding tickets on your driving record can cost you a lot of money. Your automobile insurance company may increase your insurance rates when you apply for new insurance or for a renewal of your existing insurance. Avoid paying increased insurance rates! Call attorney Todd E. Tkach now to protect your driving record.
Speeding tickets are Class C misdemeanors
All speeding tickets, code violations and other municipal citations are “Class C” misdemeanors, according to the laws of the State of Texas. At the Law Office of Todd E. Tkach, we handle all types of Class “C” misdemeanors, as well as all other criminal code violations. All Class C misdemeanors in the State of Texas are adjudicated in Municipal Courts and Justice of the Peace Courts. Although these are the lowest level of criminal courts in the State, some Class C misdemeanors can have significant and long-term effects. For example, multiple convictions for disorderly conduct can be enhanced to Class B or Class A misdemeanors, which carry jail time in their range of punishment. A conviction for a charge of Class C assault/family violence can be enhanced and can prohibit you from owning or possessing a firearm. Don’t “go it alone.” The long-term effects can be devastating. Call Todd E. Tkach to make sure your rights are protected.
Do I have to be in Court on the day of my Allen speeding ticket hearing?
In most cases, it is not necessary for you to be present on the day of your hearing. Although it can help us get a dismissal and/or to negotiate a more favorable plea agreement, your presence is usually not necessary. If you can’t be in court on the day of your hearing either because of prior commitments, work, being out of the state, or you just don’t want to take the time, no problem! Attorney Todd E.
