Why you should fight your Duncanville traffic violation

Why is it important to fight your Duncanville traffic violation? Simply paying your fine for a Duncanville traffic violation means that you agree that you are “guilty” of the charge. Being convicted of, or found guilty of a Duncanville traffic violation can have serious consequences. There are at least four (4) major reasons to fight a Duncanville traffic violation.

First, fight your Duncanville traffic violation to avoid paying a fine

If you are guilty, you must pay a monetary fine. Depending on the Duncanville traffic violation involved, the fine could be several hundred dollars. Hiring Todd E. Tkach to fight your Duncanville traffic violation could result in a dismissal of the charges. In that event, you don’t have to pay any fine!!

Second, fight your Duncanville traffic violation 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 Duncanville traffic violations. The number of “Points” charged varies depending on the type of Duncanville traffic violation you are given, but ranges from one (1) to six (6) points. A Texas driver gets 2 points for most Duncanville 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 Duncanville traffic violations and protect your driver’s license.

Third, fight your Duncanville traffic violation to avoid paying surcharges

Convictions of certain Duncanville traffic violations 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 Duncanville traffic violations. Call Todd E. Tkach now! We’ll fight for a dismissal of these Duncanville traffic violations 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 Duncanville traffic violation to stop insurance rate increases

Convictions of Duncanville traffic violations 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 Duncanville traffic violations 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.

Duncanville traffic violations are Class C misdemeanors

All Duncanville traffic violations, 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, including Duncanville traffic violations, 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 fight your Duncanville traffic violation and make sure your rights are protected.
