Atlanta Red Light Violation Attorney
Fight to Avoid Points on Your Driving Record
A red light violation is not a minor traffic ticket. It will lead to points
on your license and fines. The city assesses further fines for a red light
ticket if you do not respond within the 14 days. You will have other penalties
assessed, and after 90 days, it will be sent to a collection agency. You
only have a short period of time in which to pay the ticket, and in doing
so, you are admitting guilt. Don't do it. You have another option
– fight back.
At the Law Office of Matthew T. McNally, our lawyer can get involved in
defending you against the ticket. As a former Deputy District Attorney
for Cobb County,
Mr. McNally has an uncommon level of understanding of the workings of the local justice
system, and how to successfully defend against red light tickets. If you
have been issued a ticket for a red light violation, don't assume
you won't run into trouble if you fail to pay on time.
This is a huge source of revenue for the city, and the fines are collected
aggressively. Not only that, but you accrue points on your license. Once
you have 15 points, your
license will be suspended. This isn't the only problem – your insurance company is going
to raise your rates, and in the end, you often pay thousands more, as
the increase continues for several years in most cases. For this reason,
you should take action.
Should I plead "nolo" instead of fighting my ticket?
Many people think that it would be better to plead "nolo" rather
than fight a red light ticket. The facts are that even if the judge allows
this plea (which is up to his or her discretion), the violation will still
show on your driving record and the insurance company will raise your
rates anyway. There are options that can allow you to avoid all of the
problems with your license, your insurance and your driving record. Call
the firm and fight the ticket. As an Atlanta traffic ticket lawyer that
knows the justice system inside out, you have a far better chance of avoiding
