"It is just a traffic ticket... I can just pay the fine and never worry about it again."
This is how many people that are given a traffic ticket react. Only to later see the points on their drivers license, see their insurance premiums go up. What people also don't take into consideration is that "they never know when they will be pulled over again, adding more points to their drivers license, be subjected to even higher insurance premiums, or even have their insurance policy canceled by their insurance carrier.
Some people even forget to pay their traffic ticket or forget about their traffic ticket court date. Failure to pay the imposed fine or failure to appear in court can be serious enough to leave lasting consequences, such as the potential suspension of your driving privileges, increase of insurance rates and potential for jail time if you are pulled over for driving on a suspended license.
All moving traffic violations are reported to your insurance carrier. Also reported to your insurance carrier are license suspensions and license revocation. Another issue to keep in mind is that if your insurance policy is canceled for any reason, it is reported to the DMV. If you choose to drive without active insurance coverage, it is a criminal offense, and if pulled over you may face license suspension, revocation, potential jail time, fines, and community service.
We inform you about these issues because, getting a traffic ticket is not always as simple as one may initially think. There are a whole host of things relating to a traffic ticket that can impact your life, ability to drive, or even lead to potential criminal charges if not properly addressed.
