Irving Speeding Ticket
You should fight an Irving speeding ticket in court.
Ok, so you just got an Irving speeding ticket. Now what? Your next decision could make a big difference in the time, effort and money you spend taking care of that problem. The easiest thing to do is nothing at all. But, that would result in a warrant for your arrest. The next easiest thing to do would be to pay the ticket. Again, not a great decision. Paying an Irving traffic ticket means that you plead guilty to the charge and are convicted of it. Convictions can have disastrous and far reaching consequences, including paying a high fine amount, increased auto insurance rates, points on your driving record, Texas Department of Public Safety surcharges and a possible driver's license suspension.

Why you should fight your Irving speeding ticket
Why is it important to fight your Irving speeding ticket? Simply paying your fine for a ticket means that you agree that you are “guilty” of the charge. Being convicted of, or found guilty of a Irving speeding ticket can have serious consequences. There are at least four (4) major reasons to fight a Irving speeding ticket.
First, fight your Irving speeding ticket to avoid paying a fine
If you are guilty, you must pay a monetary fine. Depending on the Irving speeding ticket involved, the fine could be several hundred dollars. Hiring Todd E. Tkach to fight your Irving speeding ticket could result in a dismissal of the charges. In that event, you don’t have to pay any fine!!
Second, fight your Irving 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 Irving speeding tickets. The number of “Points” charged varies depending on the type of Irving speeding ticket 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 Irving speeding tickets and protect your driver’s license.
Third, fight your Irving speeding ticket to avoid paying surcharges
Convictions of certain Irving 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 Irving speeding tickets. Call Todd E. Tkach now! We’ll fight for a dismissal of these Irving 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 Irving speeding ticket to stop insurance rate increases
Convictions of Irving 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 Irving 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 Irving 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.
