Traffic citations can have expensive and inconvenient repercussions in North Carolina, even for seemingly small offenses. Depending on the seriousness of the moving violation, (such as DWI or street racing) jail time and/or suspension of driving privileges are possible. Our team at Koontz Law, PLLC will fight for you should you find yourself cited for any of the following offenses:
- DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or DWI (Driving While Impaired)
- Improper equipment
- Illegal street/highway racing
- Hit and Run/Leaving the scene of an accident
- Reckless driving
- Driving with a revoked or suspended license
- Passing a stopped school bus
- Invalid inspection, license, insurance or registration
- Underage driving offenses
- Improper turn signals
- Evading arrest
- Following too closely, improper turns, illegal passing
- Failure to yield the right of way
If driving privileges are currently suspended, our experienced team can work with the courts in an effort to get partial driving privileges restored should you need personal transportation for work, doctors’ visits, or conducting family business. In the event that driving privileges are not reinstated, we work to find other amenable results and solutions to get you where you need to go.
In most cases, a DWI charge in North Carolina enacts Pretrial Revocation (an immediate 30 day suspension of driving privileges). Be sure to contact us to see if we can help with your pretrial driving suspension as in some cases driving privileges can be restored within 10 days of the offense.
Young drivers are especially susceptible to driving errors which result in inevitable traffic citations. Depending on the severity of the charge, having knowledgeable legal counsel can make the difference of your child or loved one receiving permanent strikes on their driving and/or criminal record(s) or not. Insurance premiums are likely to rise and insurance points accrue without proper representation in court, costing you in the long run. Arm yourself with the best defense: a dedicated and experienced team that makes every effort to inform you about your charges and fights to have your case dismissed or your charges reduced. Unlike many local law firms, our team at Koontz Law, PLLC will inform you when your traffic citations are not worth fighting.
