Don't Let Your Lead Foot Carry You Away
Some folks say that Mecklenburg County has a reputation when it comes to speeding tickets — and not in a good way. Getting a speeding ticket in North Carolina is serious business and the consequences include:
- Increased insurance premiums
- Driving record points
The North Carolina State Patrol wrote 413,221 speeding tickets throughout North Carolina in 2010 and 402,349 in 2009. (Statistics for 2011 were not available). There are 100 counties in the state, so if those tickets are evenly divided amongst all the counties, you could be one of approximately 4,000 people in Mecklenburg County to get a ticket from the state patrol this year. If you are, then you want an experienced Charlotte speeding ticket attorney from the Law Office of Charles L. Morgan, Jr., on your side in traffic court.
Mecklenburg County License Suspension Attorney
When you pay a fine for a speeding ticket, you are essentially pleading guilty to a crime. You would not normally plead guilty to a crime, so that is why you should contact Chuck Morgan to represent you in traffic court.
Our experienced attorney will review your ticket and driving record. By representing you in traffic court, Chuck Morgan may be able to have your charges reduced or dismissed. Making an investment in an experienced attorney could save you money on fines and increased insurance rates. And we may be able to help you keep your driving privileges.
If your license is revoked, our law firm will represent you at your DMV hearing and work hard on your behalf to negotiate limited driving privileges to allow you to continue to work and provide for your family.
State laws are changing all the time, so do you know the consequences of a speeding ticket? For instance, a new state statute went into effect at the beginning of 2012 that toughens the state's driving laws for individuals under the age of 18. It allows for a civil revocation of a limited learner's permit or provisional license if the teenager is charged with a criminal moving violation such as excessive speeding.
