When Is It Wise To Fight Traffic Tickets?

Virginia is one of the strictest states in the country for traffic laws, particularly where reckless driving is concerned. If you received a traffic ticket, you may feel tempted to pay the fine, thinking that the problem will just go away. However, some driving offenses such as reckless driving and DUI are handled as criminal misdemeanors. The penalties can be much more than a simple fine — you could face jail time.

A speeding ticket, therefore, can turn into a criminal matter. To get help today from a criminal defense attorney in Manassas, Virginia, call The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, at 703-659-1961 or toll-free at 866-719-4394. We offer free and confidential consultations.
