Most people who receive a traffic ticket in the Commonwealth of Virginia mistakenly believe that their only option is to plead guilty and pay the fine. While challenging a traffic ticket may seem like a hassle, it is important to recognize that you do have legal rights and options. It is also important to understand that a traffic conviction can carry serious consequences. You may have to pay a substantial fine, points can be added to your driving record and your insurance premiums are likely to increase. Additionally, depending upon the seriousness of your offense, your driver’s license may be suspended or revoked and you could even have to spend time in jail.
