Pennsylvania Moving Traffic Violations
Most people when cited for a traffic offense simply plead guilty and send in the money for the fine without regard for the possible long term effects on their insurance rates or their ability to drive. No one should ever plead guilty to any traffic offense without first consulting with an experienced traffic attorney to determine what the potential ramifications are of the conviction. For some traffic offenses a conviction could mean additional points on your driving record that could increase your insurance rates.
For other offenses, a conviction could have far more severe ramifications including the suspension of your driving privileges. Chester County traffic attorney Steve Jarmon has years of experience defending motorists cited with traffic violations and obtaining good results for them. Call today to see if Chester County traffic attorney Steve Jarmon can help you avoid points on your license or a license suspension.
