A Skilled Traffic Violations Attorney Can Help You
For many people, a traffic ticket can seem like a minor inconvenience that you can handle on your own. However, the truth of the matter is that repeatedly receiving speeding tickets or other traffic violations can land you in significant trouble with the criminal justice system. South Carolina uses a points system to determine the severity of traffic violations, and you can face license suspension after as few as two separate traffic violations. This is why you need to contact an experienced traffic violations attorney who can help you avoid losing your license.
My name is David E. Rigney, and I am here to help you. At the Rigney Law Firm, I have been representing people with traffic violations for nearly a decade, and I am standing by to help you.
Traffic Violations Can Add Up Quickly
Even a small traffic violation can harm your driving record. In South Carolina, you are given points on your driving record for any traffic violations. They reduce by half exactly one year after you receive them and are eliminated after two years. Small traffic violations start with an initial two points being added to your record, such as parking improperly or failing to signal when changing lanes. However, other violations such as speeding or reckless driving can result in at most six points being added to your record.
Getting these points is a serious matter, as you can lose your license for three months with as few as 12 points and up to six months if you get 20 or more points. The only way to proactively reduce your driving points is to take a defensive driving course, which will reduce four points from your record. This is why it is so important to have an attorney representing you if you are facing multiple high-point traffic violations. I can work with the court in an effort to minimize the potential penalties you may be facing as a result of your traffic violations.
