Why Fight?

Why Fight Your New Orleans Traffic Ticket?

When you receive a traffic ticket, it may seem easiest to pay the ticket and move on with your life.  In fact, paying the ticket may be the worst course of action. Paying the ticket is an admission of guilt and can have far-reaching consequences that impact your life for years. Instead, you should fight your ticket with the help of the New Orleans traffic ticket lawyers at Bloom Legal.

When you receive a ticket, you have three options:

  1. Pay the ticket and accept the consequences. 
  2. Fight the ticket.
  3. Ignore the ticket and doing nothing.

When you pay a traffic ticket, you admit guilt. The ticket goes on your driving record.  You may also face fines, points on your record, loss of your license, traffic school and increased car insurance premiums.  If you ignore your ticket, a warrant may be issued for your arrest.  Generally, the best option is to fight your ticket with the help of experienced legal counsel.

The Consequences of a Traffic Ticket on Your Driving Record

When you pay a traffic ticket instead of fighting it, it will be entered on your driving record and you will have points on your license.  Points can result in a number of negative consequences. For example:

  • Loss of a commercial driver’s license. If you have a commercial driver’s license (CDL), your license and your job might be at risk. If you do not have a CDL but seek one in the future, the ticket could compromise your ability to obtain a CDL.
  • Job loss. You could be disqualified from a job that requires you to have a clean driving record.  Many companies require a clean record, including jobs that provide a company car or require you to drive as part of your employment.
  • Increased insurance rates. Your personal insurance premiums could rise significantly as a result of a traffic ticket. This means more money spent every month on insurance that comes out of your pocket.
  • Loss of license.  Too many tickets and too many points on your driving record in a short time can put your license at risk.

No one wants to put their job or livelihood at risk and no one wants insurance to take a bigger bite out of their budget.  You can avoid these consequences by seeking the assistance of a New Orleans traffic ticket lawyer at Bloom Legal.
