Riverside Traffic Violations Lawyer
A Riverside traffic violations lawyer at Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox LLP can help you if you have received a traffic ticket or if you have been arrested for a traffic crime. The California Vehicle Code establishes many rules for motorists. If you are accused of violating the rules, this can have serious consequences. A traffic ticket lawyer can help you fight against the accusations or negotiate a deal to reduce penalties and consequences of being found guilty.
Traffic Violations and Traffic Crimes
In most situations where you break the rules of the road, you’ll get a ticket or a citation. You can be cited for:
- Exceeding the speed limit.
- Not stopping for a school bus.
- Not yield the right-of-way when required.
- Going through a stop sign or a red light.
- Making an illegal turn.
- Using a cell phone while operating your vehicle.
If you commit these or other moving violations, you’ll get a citation telling you what your obligations are and listing your violations. You need to sign the citation and respond to it, either by paying your fine or by coming to court at your appointed time.
Some driving behaviors are not mere violations but instead of crimes. If you are charged with reckless driving or driving while drunk, you could be arrested, jailed, and required to stand trial.
The Riverside traffic violations lawyers at Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox LLP have extensive experience helping clients accused of all types of traffic offenses. We can provide you with the assistance you need to respond to your citation or charges.
Why You Need a Riverside Traffic Violations Lawyer
Many people who get a citation just pay the fine. Unfortunately, this means you admit guilt. Your insurance rates are likely to rise and you’ll get points on your license that prevent you from taking jobs that require a clean driving record. Too many points can lead to your license being suspended or revoked.
Instead of just paying up, a Riverside traffic violations lawyer can help you to explore other options. Unless the prosecutor can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you broke the rules, you can avoid being found guilty of a traffic offense. This means you can keep your clean record and avoid the other consequences of a ticket.
