Lou Bertrand and his Associates have handled literally hundreds of traffic violations and represented also many hundreds of people that have been charged with drunk or impaired driving. Driving under the influence is a very complex area of the law and one should not rely on their own, to attend Court without the assistance of an experienced lawyer.
The Plain And Hidden Costs Of Penalty Points On Your License
Something as small as running a stop sign can put two points on your license. Other offenses are more serious, such as street racing, which puts six points on your license. All offenses within a two-year period have cumulative point values, and accruing 12 or more points in 24 months can result in license suspension.
What most people fail to consider is how points impact their insurance premiums. Companies base rates on a number of factors, including and especially your driving record. If an insurer has a good excuse to charge you more money (because of traffic violations), it typically will raise your premiums.
Are you a commercial driver? If so, a clean record is even more important. Traffic violations and license points could cost you your job.
The bottom line: if you want to keep your license intact and avoid paying more for the same insurance coverage, it is often worth your time and expense to work with a traffic violations defense attorney.
