A conviction for a relatively minor traffic infraction may not only lead to immediate monetary fines and court costs, but it can also cause your automobile insurance rates to rise for years to come costing you thousands of dollars.
For more severe offenses such as reckless driving, in addition to the substantial costs involved, you could be subject to jail time or the loss or suspension of your driver’s license. If you received a ticket as a result of an automobile accident, pre-paying the fine to avoid going to court is presumed to be an admission of guilt, which will limit your ability to defend yourself in the event a subsequent lawsuit is filed against you.
