Have you received a Dallas County traffic ticket? If simply pay the fine, your traffic citation can appear on your driving record. If it’s a moving violation, such as a speeding ticket, running a red light, running a stop sign, or improper lane change, you insurance rates may go up. Also, the Texas Department of Public Safety will assess points against your drivers license, which could ultimately cause your license to be suspended. Not to mention the fact that certain traffic ticket convictions will result in a surcharge that you will be required to pay. For example, a no driver’s license ticket conviction will garner you a $250 surcharge. For no insurance tickets, you’re looking at $750… and that’s in addition to the fine.
