Avoid Long-Term Consequences Of Speeding And Reckless Driving Charges
To some, a speeding ticket is a minor inconvenience they slip into a pile of junk mail and pay when they get around to it. But there are accruing penalties for speeding and reckless driving charges that have serious ramifications if you live in North Carolina. Letting traffic violations stack within a short period of time could harm your pocketbook and potentially cause license revocation.
At The Law Offices of Karen D. Gerber, PLLC, in Winston-Salem, founder and attorney Karen Gerber has served North Carolina residents with traffic violation counsel for over 14 years. If there is a way to reduce your consequences or have your charges dropped, we will find it.
Know The Ramifications Of Your Violation
North Carolina can be quite strict when it comes to speeding. If you are cited for going more than 15 miles per hour over the speed limit when the limit is above 55 mph, your speeding ticket could be counted as a reckless driving charge. Not only are the initial penalties more severe for reckless driving charges, but they also accrue more traffic violation points.
A reckless driving conviction will add four points to your record, where a general speeding charge is usually three points. Accumulating 12 points in a three-year time span will result in license suspension and potential future restrictions for the next few years.
