How to Get Your Traffic Ticket Dismissed
It’s easy to become distracted while driving and not realize you are going over the speed limit, forgetting a turn signal, or have missed a stop sign. Before you pay the fine for your traffic ticket, read on and find out how you can successfully get your ticket dismissed.
Your traffic violation, if minor, will likely result in a fine, and possibly points assessed to your driver’s license. What some drivers don’t realize, or take advantage of, is the fact that it’s possible to get the ticket dismissed completely when they choose their other option: contesting the ticket in court.
Why Drivers Avoid Contesting Traffic Tickets
Plenty of drivers simply accept their traffic tickets and pay their fines online. While this is the more convenient option, it may not be the smartest in the long run. When you receive a traffic ticket, there are points added to your driving record, and when these points add up (which doesn’t take long if you receive more than 1-2 tickets within a year), your license can quickly be at risk of suspension.
The MVA in Maryland issues the following for points accumulated due to traffic violations:
- 3-4 Points = Warning Letter
- 5-7 Points = Required Enrollment in Driver Improvement Program (DIP)
- 8-11 Points = Notice of License Suspension
- 12+ Points = Notice of License Revocation
When you simply pay the fine for your ticket, you agree to have points assessed to your driver’s license. Contesting your ticket with the help of a reliable Maryland defense attorney can not only allow you to have the points dismissed but can also lower or eliminate the fines associated with your driving violation. It might not be the more convenient of the two options, as your court hearing will be scheduled and you must appear in court, but it’s certainly worthwhile.
