Traffic Violations

Most individuals do not consider a traffic violation a serious offense. More often than not people plead guilty and pay the fines associated with the ticket. However, Pennsylvania has a point system for traffic tickets and depending on your driving history and the severity of the offense, the consequences of pleading guilty could have a lasting effect on your life.

If you are convicted of a traffic offense you could face points on your license, fines and costs, an insurance premium increase and a possible loss of your license. For example, in Pennsylvania if you are convicted of Reckless Driving you could face a minimum fine of $200 dollars and a loss of license for 6 months.

If you were cited for a traffic violation in Delaware County or the Philadelphia area then you need to contact The Law Offices of Robert L. Schwarz. Some types of traffic tickets that you should consider fighting are:
