Will I receive points on my driving record and my insurance rates go up if I received a traffic ticket?
Before you receive any points and before your insurance rates can go up, your case must be heard in court. Points are only assessed on your driving record if you are found guilty. Since a traffic ticket is a criminal charge, the State must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In our experience, most of our clients avoid points, insurance rate increases and large fines by following our simple advice and challenging their case in court.
