What happens if I don’t hire an attorney for traffic violations?
What you don’t know can hurt you!
Warrants for your arrest without an attorney for traffic violations
After you receive a traffic violation, you only have a few days to either pay the violation or set it for a court hearing. If you fail to do either, a warrant for your arrest will be issued. In that event, you cannot resolve that traffic violation with the court unless and until you do one of the following two things: 1) pay the maximum fine amount for the violation; or 2) post a cash bond in an amount equal to the maximum fine amount plus court costs! Neither of those options is advisable. If you simply pay the violation, not only are you paying the highest fine possible for that particular violation, but you are convicted of the charge, which means it will go on your driving record. Posting a cash bond can also be problematic. The amount of the cash bond will be equal to the maximum possible fine for that violation, plus an additional amount for court costs. The cash necessary for that bond will be several hundred dollars. The Court holds your cash until you resolve your traffic violation, which could take several months.
Let me suggest an alternative. Keep your cash and protect your driving record! For a nominal fee, hire attorney for traffic violations Todd E. Tkach to post an attorney for traffic violations bond, lift the warrant and go to court to fight for a dismissal of the traffic violation. You don’t even have to go to court, unless you want to.
