Tulsa Traffic Ticket Attorney; Consequences of Paying Your Ticket
Traffic ticket fines vary throughout Oklahoma, differing by court, county and municipality. Most of the time, the ticket fine will be noted on the citation. However, if you do not see a fine, a court appearance will likely be required. When a person has been issued a traffic ticket in Tulsa, they have two options: pay the ticket and plead guilty/no contest or hire a Tulsa traffic ticket attorney to fight the ticket and plead not guilty.
By paying your ticket and pleading guilty or no contest, you have the possibility of increased insurance rates and DPS adding points to your driving history. A person with no tickets will have zero points on his or her license. After the payment of a ticket and a conviction, DPS will assign points to your record based on the offense. Point values range from one to four based on the severity of the offense. If a person accumulates 10 or more points within five years, his/her license will be suspended. Point are deducted by two for each 12 month period in which there are no convictions of any traffic violations (violations which carry points). In addition, two points are deducted for successful completion of a DPS-approved Driver Compliance or Defensive Driving Course. Reductions for completion of these courses can be given once every 24 months.
When a person hires a Tulsa traffic ticket attorney to fight the ticket, he or she will challenge the ticket in court for the purpose of having the ticket reduced or dismissed.
