Have You Received a Speeding Ticket?

How to Address a Speeding Ticket in Virginia

No one likes getting a speeding ticket, but failing to address it can cause long-term problems for your driver’s license, your insurance rate, and potentially your freedom. Call a traffic attorney and get ahead of the issue and help find out exactly what you’re dealing with. Did you know that you have 40 days to pay or contest your ticket in the state of Virginia? If you fail to do so a judge may issue a warrant for your arrest, so pay your speeding tickets!

Receiving a speeding ticket doesn’t have to break the bank, or create long term problems. In many cases, on your first offense you will have the option to take a Virginia DMV approved defensive driving course.
