Defending Against Traffic Violations In St. Clair County
If you have received a traffic ticket, it is important to understand that you have options. You do not have to pay the ticket. In fact, you should consider that your last option. People frequently pay their tickets, not knowing that in doing so they are putting themselves in further risk of driver’s license suspension and expensive insurance rate increases. Instead, you can fight the ticket with the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
Decades Of Experience In Traffic Ticket Defense
Attorney Joseph R. Kemp has decades of experience defending people against traffic violations. He defends residents of St. Clair County and the surrounding parts of Alabama, as well as out-of-state drivers who received a traffic ticket while visiting or passing through this area. This includes truck drivers accused of commercial driver’s license (CDL) violations.
Among the many traffic crimes that Joseph R. Kemp defends against are:
- Speeding violations
- Reckless driving
- Stop sign and stop light violations
- Driving with a suspended driver’s license
The reason people frequently plead guilty and simply pay the fine is because they believe that the evidence against them is too strong to fight. For example, if you were issued a speeding ticket, you may think that because the police caught you on radar going over the speed limit there is nothing you can do. That is not true. Even in situations when the odds seem stacked against you, Joseph R. Kemp may be able to negotiate a lesser penalty for you. That could mean reduced fines and protection of your driving privileges.
