Common Questions about Haywood County Traffic Violations

 

In North Carolina, mailing in payment for the fine found on your citation is interpreted as you pleading guilty to the charge as is. 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 Westall advises never paying off your ticket without first contacting a license North Carolina traffic attorney.

It can definitely can be viewed as slightly cheaper in the short-term to represent yourself in court, because you will not have to pay an attorney retainer fee. However, it can also be far more expensive in the long-term. It is possible you will not achieve the most advantageous outcome if you decide to handle your case on your own, which can result in significant insurance increases. To ensure that you obtain the most satisfactory level of reduction for your traffic ticket to help minimize any long term costs, we urge you to contact our office for a consultation.

No two traffic cases are identical and each possible reduction corresponds to a unique court cost and fine amount. Typical reductions can range anywhere from $0 (Voluntary Dismissal) to $283 (Improper Equipment). The following is a list of some common traffic ticket reductions and their corresponding court cost totals: Improper Equipment - $288. Speeding of 5/9mph over - $233. Prayer for Judgment Continued - $210. Speeding of 14mph over - $233. Reckless Driving - $233. Voluntary Dismissal - $0.

In Haywood County, your court costs and fines will be due 40 days after your court date to the Clerks of Court.

This can vary depending on the nature of the speed the officer has cited you with (the severity of the charge), your driving record (whether or not you have license points), and how the ticket is disposed. Certain reductions that Attorney Westall can seek for you can result in no impact to your insurance. We encourage you to call us at (919) 200-0822 for a free consultation to go over the specific circumstances of your case.
