For any traffic related charges in Montgomery County, it is prudent that the ticketed motorist contact a traffic ticket attorney before they take action. It does not matter if you are a New York State or out-of-state motorist. A serious traffic infraction on your record can be more costly than the already high costs of fines and fees. With prior violations there is the possibility of suspension. A more likely issue is the increased insurance rates. Your car insurance company will in all likelihood raise your premiums once they find out about the violation. Car insurance companies check your driving abstract every time you are up for renewal. Since all convictions are reported to sister states, your insurance company will probably find out about your traffic conviction.
The good news is that these issues can be avoided if the summons is handled properly. Your New York attorney can submit the not guilty plea on your behalf, make any necessary court appearances in your place, and obtain an advantageous disposition. You do not have to come back to Montgomery County or even present your defense to the charges. A quality traffic lawyer will handle all from A to Z.
