What is a Traffic Ticket?

A traffic ticket is issued by law enforcement when a police officer reasonably believes that you have violated one of California’s traffic laws. Your traffic ticket violation may be either an infraction or a misdemeanor depending on the specific facts of your case.

Common Types of Traffic Tickets in California

The following examples are the most common types of traffic tickets that our law firm has handled for over 30 years:

What to do Immediately After You Receive a Traffic Ticket in California?

  1. The first thing you must do immediately after you are issued a traffic citation is to do your research and understand the charges against you. What traffic law are you being accused of violating?
  2. Write down the facts of your case. Where were you pulled over? What questions were you asked by the police officer? What did you respond to the police officer?
  3. Find out which court will be handling your traffic ticket, and when you are being requested to appear.
  4. Call an attorney who is experienced in handling traffic tickets, so he or she can provide you with the legal guidance and advice you need during this time. Keep in mind that it is in your best interest to contact an attorney that has experience in handling traffic tickets in the city or court where you were cited. He or she will know the ins and outs of the court where your case is pending.

When Should You Fight a Traffic Ticket?

You should fight a traffic ticket whenever you feel the officer was wrong in issuing the citation. Thus, you should speak to an attorney that handles traffic tickets to discuss the details of your case, as well as to discuss your chances of winning if you choose to challenge the ticket. The last thing you want to do is to go to court without the legal representation of an attorney.
