Henderson County Reckless Driving, Expired Registration, No Insurance
When you get pulled over in Henderson County, North Carolina, law enforcement officers will frequently tack on to your traffic ticket an additional charge, such as reckless driving. The Henderson County traffic ticket lawyers at Langer Law Firm understand that this can present a big problem because reckless driving can carry more insurance points than your underlying speeding ticket, depending upon what the speed limit was and how fast you were driving at the time. In North Carolina, a reckless driving conviction will result in four (4) insurance points, which will raise your insurance by eighty percent (80%)! And, that does not even take into account the points that can be assessed based upon any of the other violations with which you were charged during the stop. But, there is no need to worry because our experienced Hendersonville traffic ticket attorneys are here to help.
Under most circumstances, when someone is given both a speeding ticket and a citation for reckless driving, the local attorneys at Langer Law Firm are able to negotiate with the assistant district attorneys and get the reckless driving charge dismissed. Sometimes, the driver will be required to take either a National Safety Council or Safety and Health Council of North Carolina approved driving school in order to secure a dismissal of the violation. Luckily, most of the time no such driving school is required. We make every effort to ensure that our clients do not have to take a traffic course if it is not absolutely necessary for the voluntary dismissal of their reckless driving violation. However, if a driving school is mandated by the district attorney in your particular case, it is definitely a course worth taking. Spending the time on a four-hour (or eight-hour, depending upon the severity of your charges) traffic school can save you thousands of dollars in insurance premiums for years to come.Expired Registration and No Insurance
More common than reckless driving citations are citations for an expired registration and for not having insurance (usually because the insurance has lapsed without your knowledge). If you can provide us with proof that you have renewed your vehicle’s registration, we can show that proof to an assistant district attorney on your court date, and he or she will very likely dismiss the charge. Likewise, if you can show us proof that you either had insurance at the time that you were pulled over or that you now have insurance, we can very likely have your no insurance violation dismissed. Remember, we can generally handle everything without you ever having to step foot in the courtroom.
