Common Questions about Gaston County Traffic Violations

Isn't it easier to just mail in payment for my speeding ticket in Gastonia?

In North Carolina, mailing in payment for the amount listed on your ticket means pleading guilty to the offense that is listed on your ticket. Admitting guilt can have serious ramifications and can cause sharp increases to your insurance rates, license points, and/or the suspension of your driving privileges. While it might seem convenient at first glance, paying off your ticket can have huge negative impact. Attorney Metz advises never paying off your ticket without first contacting a license North Carolina traffic attorney.

Isn’t it cheaper if I just represent myself at the Gaston County Courthouse?

It certainly might be slightly cheaper short-term to represent yourself in court, because you will not have to pay an attorney retainer fee. However, often times it can be far more expensive long-term. You may not receive the most optimum level of reduction if you handle your case on your own, which can result in huge insurance increases. In order to make sure you get the best possible level of reduction for your traffic ticket to help minimize any long term costs, we urge you to contact an attorney who specializes in traffic law for a consultation.* If you decide to fight your ticket, your hearing will likely be continued to a future date, meaning you must miss then another day of work just to finalize your case.
