Were You Charged With A Traffic Violation?

Most people have seen those dreaded flashing lights in their rearview mirrors at least once during their driving careers. Nearly everyone has felt that sinking feeling, knowing that the traffic offense will go in their record and result in a wide array of complications.

However, it doesn't always have to end that way. While many traffic violations can be resolved by simply paying the fine, there's another option for you that won't automatically impact your driving record or insurance premiums for years to come. You have the option of working with an attorney who understands the intricacies of South Carolina's traffic laws.

At the Law Office of Jason S. Stevens, LLC, we have significant experience helping individuals in Charleston, Mount Pleasant and beyond resolve traffic tickets and related issues. Call 843-410-3953 and let our skilled lawyer provide the advice and assistance you need in cases involving:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Failing to stop at a red sign or stop sign
  • Driving while license suspended
  • Driving without insurance
  • Hit-and-run incidents
  • DUI/drunk driving
  • Other traffic violations

Paying The Ticket Now Can Cause Problems Later

Unless you're facing charges such as a DUI or vehicular manslaughter, your traffic ticket will likely not result in jail time. However, that doesn't mean that it won't negatively impact your life.

Like most states, South Carolina has implemented a point system. Each offense is awarded a point value based on its severity. If you accumulate too many points in a specified period of time, you run the risk of having your driver's license suspended or even revoked. Losing your license is a problem for any driver, but if you're a commercial trucker, it could also mean the loss of your career.

At the very least, you're facing higher insurance premiums, which can potentially drain thousands of dollars from your budget. With all this in mind, it may be far smarter for you to fight the ticket than to pay it.
