Traffic Tickets & CDL Defense

Cleveland Traffic Ticket Attorney

Defending Against Traffic Violations & CDL Violations in the Greater Cleveland Area

If you have been issued a traffic ticket, you may wonder if you should just pay the fine or hire a lawyer. After all, paying a traffic ticket can seem cheaper in the short term, but it can cost you much more in the long run. Paying a traffic ticket without consulting a lawyer can lead to the accumulation of points on your license, which can lead to increased insurance premiums and even a license suspension. If you are facing a traffic ticket, do not pay the fine without consulting an attorney first.

    What Are the Consequences of a Traffic Ticket?

    If you have been issued a traffic ticket, you may be wondering what the consequences of receiving a traffic ticket are and whether or not you should pay the ticket. Traffic tickets are issued for a wide range of traffic violations, including speeding, running a stop sign or red light, and failing to yield. The most common consequence of a traffic ticket is paying a fine. Depending on the nature of the ticket and the circumstances surrounding the ticket, the fine can range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. The fine is usually accompanied by court costs, which can be an additional several hundred dollars. In addition to paying fines, you may also be required to attend traffic school to avoid the points associated with the ticket.

    Defenses Against Traffic Tickets

    Potential defenses include:

    • Challenging the Officer’s Observations: Questioning the accuracy of the officer’s observations or the method used to determine a violation, such as radar or laser speed detection.
    • Procedural Errors: Identifying any procedural mistakes made by law enforcement, such as improper calibration of speed detection devices or failure to follow correct protocols during the traffic stop.
    • Violation of Rights: Examining whether your constitutional rights were violated during the traffic stop or ticketing process. Any infringement on your rights can be grounds for dismissal.
    • Necessity Defense: Arguing that the violation was necessary to avoid greater harm, such as swerving to avoid an accident.
    • Improper Signage or Road Conditions: Proving that traffic signs were obscured or road conditions were poor, making compliance with traffic laws challenging or impossible.

    Defenses Against CDL Violations

    Defending against CDL violations requires a thorough understanding of both traffic laws and the specific regulations governing commercial drivers. Defenses may include:

    • Technical Defenses: Examining the accuracy of the equipment used to issue the ticket, such as speed detection devices and weighing scales.
    • Logbook and Hours-of-Service Compliance: Analyzing your logbook entries and hours-of-service records to ensure compliance and identify any discrepancies that can be used in your defense.
    • Challenging the Evidence: Scrutinizing the evidence presented against you, including witness statements and police reports, to find inconsistencies or errors.
    • Mitigation Strategies: If a full dismissal isn't possible, we work to minimize the impact of the violation on your record and livelihood, such as negotiating reduced penalties or alternative sentencing options.
