Beaufort County Traffic Ticket Lawyer
Do Not Face Traffic Tickets Or Other Allegations Alone In Beaufort County
A study in a national law journal suggests that many small communities increase their traffic citations whenever extra money is needed to meet financial goals. One of the communities highlighted in the study was Beaufort in Beaufort County.
The Journal of Law and Economics studied several cities in the Carolinas over 14 years. The journal said the study revealed that the cities’ finances affect the number of traffic tickets. If you were cited for a traffic violation in Beaufort County, call Drennan Law Firm.
The study found that whenever revenue shrunk by at least 10 percent in one of those cities, the number of traffic tickets increased by over 6 percent on average. Beaufort officials say police officers do not take extra measures to ticket traffic violators when revenue is down. However, it is in your best interest to make sure your rights were not violated if you were ticketed in the county or anywhere in South Carolina. Our lawyers can support your rights.
You Are Admitting Guilt If You Pay The Fine
If you were stopped and you believe you did not do anything wrong, do not take it lightly. There are consequences. If you pay the fine, you are admitting wrongdoing, which could cause problems later.
The penalties, depending on the severity of your charges, could include:
- Points on your license
- Community service
- Court costs
- Higher insurance rates
- Jail time
- License revocation
- License suspension
