Moving Traffic Violations
(May have "Points" if convicted)
Texas law states that a vehicle operator, "shall stop before entering the crosswalk on the near side of the intersection ... (or) at a clearly marked stop line." (TTC §544.010) - which means your tires must stop rolling before entering the crosswalk or passing the, "stop line."
If you’re convicted too many times inside any (3) three-year period – meaning the ticket or citation is reported to Texas DPS and is “On Your Record” – your License to Drive may actually be SUSPENDED or your could be forced to pay State-mandated SURCHARGE PENALTIES to avoid a License Suspension.
A citation (for running a stop sign, red light or any other alleged traffic violation) is actually a formal summons for you to appear at court and answer the allegation against you. If you fail to appear by the date listed on the citation, you can be issued a new ticket and warrants for your immediate arrest will likely issue.
You have the constitutional right to be represented by an attorney if you so choose - which means in most cases, we can appear for you.
Our experienced and professional attorneys aggressively defend you against any alleged traffic violation. We will explain all your options for disposition or trial – and you get to decide how we will proceed – the choice is always yours, but we’re here to help you understand the consequences of whatever decision you make.
DON'T EVER PLEAD GUILTY without first understanding what it will mean to your driving record.
A ticket is only an accusation you violated a traffic law - IT IS NOT a finding of guilt by itself!
Call us today for additional information about how we can help you with your ticket.
