How can Greensboro traffic lawyers remind you to be cautious with your 4th of July celebrations? The 4th of July is one of the most celebrated holidays in the United States. Therefore, there are most likely going to be people who drink and drive. Even if you do not drink and drive, you should be cautious of the other drivers around you. Because of the increase of drunk driving around a holiday such as the 4th of July, there will most likely be more police officers on the roads to ensure the safety of the public. So, even if you are not consuming alcohol, please be careful to avoid other charges such as speeding. If you do receive such a charge, do not pay off the ticket, call one of our Greensboro traffic lawyers for advice. Greensboro traffic lawyers can save you from spending thousands for higher insurance rates with a simple phone call.
As a reminder, a speeding violation could result in license revocation in some circumstances. For example, if you have two or more speeding convictions in excess of 55 mph (but not more than 80 mph) within 12 months, your license may be revoked. A conviction for speeding more than 15 mph above the speed limit in a 55mph zone can result in a 30-day license suspension. For a complete list of offenses and fines related to speeding, you should speak with a Greensboro criminal defense lawyer.
Officers will likely be on the lookout for not only drunk drivers, but also drivers that are speeding or texting. Texting and driving can be extremely dangerous to everyone on the road. You may be in a rush to text your friends or family about your holiday plans, but it is best to do it outside of the car, or while you are safely pulled over. As a reminder, a texting while driving charge could result in a $100 fine plus court costs. Do not risk putting a damper on your holiday plans for a text!
