Traffic Ticket Lawyers Dallas | Berlof & NewtonTraffic ticket convictions can lead to dire consequences, such as increased insurance rates, drivers license suspension, inability to renew your drivers license, and surcharges.

You may be wondering:

How will this affect my insurance premiums? How will this affect my driving record?
Will this impact ability to renew my drivers license? Will I incur surcharges as the result of this violation?

Traffic Ticket Warrants

If you receive a traffic ticket in Texas, you are provided with an “appearance date.”  The appearance date is the date by which you or your traffic ticket attorney is required, by law, to enter an appearance in your case.  For example, the City of Dallas Municipal Court automatically sets your appearance date on the twenty-first date after the date on which you receive your citation. When you receive a traffic ticket, the police officer requests that you sign it.  Your signature is not a plea of “guilty” to the charge.  It is simply your promise to appear in court, on or before the appearance date.  If you fail to take any action on your traffic ticket, a warrant can be issued for your arrest. Click here to see if you have an outstanding City of Dallas arrest warrant.

Keep in mind that if you simply pay the ticket it will be reported on your driving record and you will be assessed points, possible surcharges and increased insurance premiums. Additionally, multiple traffic ticket convictions may lead to a costly driver license suspension.

After you receive a speeding ticket, you have a limited amount of time to respond to the court. Each jurisdiction has a different time period for which you are to respond. If you fail to respond, the court will issue a warrant for your arrest. If your ticket is past due and a warrant is issued for your arrest we can still help by posting a bond to lift your traffic ticket warrant.  Do not simply pay the fine amount to lift the warrant. Simply paying the fine to lift a warrant will result in a conviction negatively impacting your driving record and driving privilege. Retain Experienced Legal Representation Today
