Silver Spring Traffic Ticket Lawyer
Traffic violations can lead to large fines, points on your license and further consequences if not dealt with properly.
At the law offices of Goldberg Finnegan, our traffic ticket attorneys are knowledgeable about these offenses and have the expertise to manage it for you.
Which Types of Violations Lead to Traffic Tickets?
Each state reserves the right to maintain its own traffic laws, and any person who is in violation of these laws puts themselves at risk of being stopped by an officer and receiving a ticket. In many cases, these offenses are committed without the driver intending to do so. For example, a driver exceeds the speed limit because they are not aware it has decreased on the particular stretch of highway they are driving.
Some of the most common types of violations that could result in a traffic citation include:
- Failing to stop completely at a stop sign
- Failing to yield when another vehicle has the right of way
- Making an illegal U-turn
- Reckless driving
- Red light running
Red light cameras are positioned throughout Maryland to catch drivers who run them. However, these cameras can be inaccurate and may issue a ticket to a driver who did not run the light. Similarly, officers may be operating under the pressure of a quota in their department and deliver you a ticket when it is not completely necessary. This behavior is unfair to drivers who typically want nothing more than to go about their day without issue.
How Can a Lawyer Help Me with My Traffic Citation?
Rather than accepting the offense and paying whatever fine is imposed, hiring an attorney can help you avoid these fines. Additionally, traffic tickets can put points on your license, which could lead to a suspension and further trouble securing alternate transportation.
Each situation is different, and consulting with a lawyer is a simple way to assess your case. Goldberg Finnegan's traffic ticket attorneys are prepared to help those who were unfairly issued a citation today.
