From “36 in a 30” to “My license was revoked!” the attorneys at Saeed and Little can help you deal with the many headaches and repercussions of traffic tickets.
Receiving a traffic citation is undoubtedly annoying, but what most drivers don’t realize is the hidden costs associated with getting a traffic ticket. The truth is the ticket fine is only the beginning of the costs associated with receiving a traffic violation.
Yahoo! Finance recently posted an article* detailing a study completed by Insurance.com. The study analyzed 32,000 auto insurance policies sold in 2010 and the increased rates of those with a moving violation on their record. This study revealed the hidden expenses of moving violations. The following is the average increase in cost to an annual insurance premium due to a moving violation:
● one violation: $1,318; 18% increase in cost
● two violations: $1,497; 34% increase in cost
● three violations: $1,713; 53% increase in cost
Traffic violations that can cause these increases in insurance polices include speeding, running a red light, improper passing, making an unsafe U- turn, failing to yield or stop at a yield or stop sign, failing to use a child restraint, and careless or reckless driving. Indiana requires that all motor vehicle drivers carry car insurance, so there is no way around the increase in annual premium costs.
Your best opinion is to hire an attorney who can mitigate the severity of your ticket. At Saeed & Little, we represent people charged with traffic violations when driving for residential purposes and when driving for commercial purposes. We also have experience with the violations which a person would already know to hire an attorney: such as driving under the influence.
By hiring Saeed & Little, we will advocate on your behalf to lower the charges against you. This means fewer points on your record and less money you have to pay for your insurance premiums. We can also reach an agreement with the Prosecutor and Judge so you don’t have to go to Court.
