Traffic tickets can have more serious consequences than many people realize. If you receive too many traffic tickets within a two-year period, you could face license suspension, increased car insurance rates and even jail time, depending on the severity of the traffic offense. However, with the help of a skilled traffic violations defense lawyer, the offense could be reduced or dismissed altogether.
If you have been issued a ticket for speeding, reckless driving or other serious traffic violation, contact the New Albany law office of George Streib, Jr. I offer free initial consultations and have the experience necessary to protect your rights and your driving record.
Talk to a Lawyer Before You Pay the Traffic Ticket
When you pay the fine for a traffic violation, you are admitting guilt and essentially pleading guilty to committing the traffic offense. The traffic violation is added to your driving record and a specific point value is added to your driving record. All traffic violations remain on your driving record for two years and once you have accumulated too many points, your driver’s license can be suspended by the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).
I assist clients with traffic tickets involving:
Careless & Reckless Driving
Failure To Yield
DWI, DUI & OWI
Driving With A Suspended Licence
Misc. Traffic Violations

Although it is always wise to seek the advice of an experienced traffic violation defense attorney before paying your ticket, it is important that you take some action. Failure to pay a traffic ticket within the allotted time period (and failure to appear in traffic court to contest the ticket) is a criminal offense and could result in a warrant for your arrest.
