Know Your Options
When you’re issued a traffic violation, it’s important to know your options and what position you want to take. You can choose to:
- Plead guilty and pay the ticket
- Have the ticket amended to a non-moving violation, or placed on diversion.
- Plead NOT guilty and fight the ticket
When you plead “guilty” and choose not to contest the ticket, you may be running the risk for a possible license suspension or revocation, depending on the type of violation, and you increase the chances that your car insurance rates will go up as well.
Consequently, before pleading guilty, you should consider checking your driving record to ensure you’re not positioning yourself to lose any driving privileges upon making your plea, and you should consider getting your ticket amended to a non-moving violation, or placed on diversion.
Fighting Your Kansas Traffic Ticket
Taking the stance to plead “not guilty,” means you are voluntarily choosing to fight or “contest” the ticket. From there, you can schedule your hearing and prepare to present your case in court.
Also by choosing to plead not guilty you have the opportunity to fight for the dismissal of your traffic ticket, which may help you avoid paying ticket fines and getting the violation recorded on your driving record (if you win).
With an experienced traffic ticket lawyer, you don’t have to build your case alone.
