Traffic ticket violation defense

While a traffic ticket offense isn’t considered nearly as serious as a criminal or OWI charge, it should be taken seriously by anyone who might have outstanding tickets or find out that there is a claimed traffic citation to their name.

Traffic citations that happen in the state of Wisconsin are graded according to the points system, and the more traffic citations you have against your name – or in this case, points – the higher your risk of having your license suspended.

For example, more than 30 points will mean an automatic license suspension for as much as one year – and you could be facing additional charges and fines on top of this.

Your lawyer can ensure that they have the necessary information to proceed – and this could greatly lessen the potential of facing such heavy penalties.
