Do not assume that you are guilty of a traffic offense just because a police officer says you are – and don’t pay a traffic fine or plead guilty to a traffic offense in Clinton, NY before speaking with a knowledgeable lawyer. Although you might believe you committed a traffic offense, it is still important that you consult a knowledgeable traffic attorney prior making any decisions about how to proceed in your case. Police officers are not perfect; they make mistakes. A skilled traffic ticket lawyer can examine the evidence in your case and determine whether you may be able to fight your traffic charge. For example, if you were ticketed for speeding, it’s possible that the radar gun used to clock your vehicle was faulty or in need of maintenance. It’s also possible that the patrol officer who pulled you over did not have probable cause to stop your car in the first place. A knowledgeable lawyer can get to the bottom of your case and help you avoid the most significant penalties, which can include points on your driver’s license, higher insurance rates, costly fines and jail time.
