Have you gotten a ticket in Sarasota or one of the surrounding areas? Knowing your rights is very important. Having a valid driver’s license and being able to drive in Florida is one of the most important aspects in life that you need to protect. So if you or a loved one has gotten a ticket in Sarasota or one of the surrounding areas you need a young aggressive lawyer who was a former prosecutor to help protect your driver’s license.
It is important to get a lawyer when you get a ticket because you might not know if the ticket could result in jail or just fines and points on your license. If you get more than 12 points in 12 month or more than 18 points in 18 months your license will be suspended.
Tickets can be divided into two categories which are non- criminal traffic infraction and criminal traffic infraction. Both are serious and you need the help of an attorney to protect your rights and your driver’s license. Examples of non-criminal traffic:
- speeding tickets
- seat belt infractions
- careless driving
- running a red light
- running a stop sign
Even though you will not go to jail for these traffic tickets you could be heavily fined or having too many of them could result in having your driver’s lisence suspended.
Examples of criminal traffic crimes include:
- Driving with a suspended or revoked license
- Reckless driving
These tickets can result in you having to go to court, pay fines and even jail. You need to hire a lawyer who can help you or your loved ones from jail and heavy fines. Contact the Law Office of Eric Reisinger today.
