Fight Traffic Tickets Hamilton Downtown
Have you recently been issued a traffic ticket in the downtown Hamilton area? If so, the professionally licensed paralegals at XPolice can help you fight your ticket in order to get your fine and other penalties reduced.
Let’s say you get a traffic ticket, and in effort to avoid hassle, you just go and pay it. That is basically the equivalent of admitting your guilt. When you admit your guilt in this fashion, it results in an automatic conviction. It may seem like the natural thing to do, paying the fine for the ticket you have been given. But, being convicted of a traffic offence may come with more consequences than you realize.
Effects of a Traffic Conviction
Aside from the fine that comes with most traffic convictions, there are other possible consequences as well. These may include:
- Demerit points
- Insurance premiums
- Driver’s licence status
Demerit points are assigned based on the severity of the traffic offence. You don’t lose points when you are convicted of a traffic offence, but rather points are accumulated based on traffic convictions. If you accrue too many points, your licence may be suspended or revoked.
Even just one traffic conviction can have an unfavourable effect on your insurance premiums. Multiple traffic offences and an accumulation of demerit points can send you car insurance premiums through the roof.
Driver’s Licence Status
There are a couple different ways in which your licence can get suspended. One way is through building up too many demerit points. If you reach 9 demerit points, you may have to have an interview to discuss the status of your driver’s licence. During this interview, you will be expected to present a strong case as to why your licence should not be suspended. Failure to attend this interview may also result in suspension of your licence.
Another way you can have your licence suspended or revoked is by being convicted of a more serious or criminal offence, such as careless driving or stunt driving.
If you are convicted of a traffic offence that results in the suspension of your licence it can impact your entire life. Not being able to drive may make it more difficult or even impossible to get to work. If your job requires to have a valid driver’s licence, it could result in the termination of your employment.
Fight Traffic Tickets Hamilton Downtown
As you can see, there are many adverse effects to being convicted for a traffic violation. That is why you should attempt to fight any ticket you get. Your first offence may seem like nothing, but that could easily turn into two violations, and all of a sudden you become a multiple offender. This can result in hefty fines, demerit points, increased insurance premiums, loss of licence, and even loss of employment.
The paralegals at XPolice Hamilton have ample experience fighting traffic tickets in the Hamilton court system. Knowing the operations as well as the officers of the court can go a long well in helping your case and resulting in reduced fines and penalties.
