EXPERIENCED ATTORNEY FOR TRAFFIC AND SPEEDING TICKETS:
Traffic and speeding tickets can negatively impact your driving record and insurance premiums. Routine speeding charges can result in an increase of 45% to your insurance premiums for up to three years. NC has two different points systems for traffic cases, Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and Insurance Points.
DMV points are used by the department to determine sanctions to your privilege to drive; such as, suspending your driver’s license when you obtain 12 points in a year. Insurance points are used to determine any increase in your insurance premiums as a result of traffic ticket convictions.
For example, a conviction for speeding 70 MPH in a 55 MPH zone will result in 2 insurance points resulting in a 45% increase in your insurance premiums for three years.
