Traffic Tickets: When To Fight Them
Police officers hand out traffic tickets to drivers every day. For many Alabama drivers, a traffic ticket is little more than an unwelcome surprise. Even if they believe they received the citation unfairly, they may decide it’s easier to pay the fine than to try to fight it.
However, for some Alabama drivers, a traffic ticket represents something much worse than a mere annoyance. Some can’t afford to pay the fine or face the increased insurance costs that may come with it. Those who drive as part of their employment may fear losing their livelihood if they are stuck with a commercial driver’s license suspension.
