Effects of Traffic Violations on Auto Insurance
Information from Our Atlanta Traffic Ticket Lawyer
There are various factors which may influence a driver's auto insurance premiums, and your driving record is the most significant one. Some insurance companies give "good driver discounts" to drivers who have not been involved in auto accidents nor received traffic tickets for an extended period of time, but more importantly your insurance company may actually raise your premium based upon your driving record. A conviction for any traffic violation, no matter how minor, will show up on your driving record. Violations also have a particular number of points which may be assessed depending upon the severity of the offense. Accumulate enough points, and the Georgia Department of Driver Service may suspend or revoke your driver's license.
Keeping your driving record clean is important if you would like to keep your insurance costs low. In fact, an insurance company may raise your rates for up to 3 to 5 years, and sometimes even 7 years in some cases. This can add up to hundreds or even thousands of dollars in increased insurance costs alone. By fighting your traffic violation and keeping your driving record clean, you can save a lot of money. You will have the best opportunity of successfully fighting a traffic ticket or any violation with the help of an experienced lawyer. At the Law Office of Matthew T. McNally, we offer a free initial consultation to help you get started.
