Hiring an attorney will save you money in the long run because we can keep the traffic ticket from affecting your driving record. Traffic tickets stay on your driving record for 5 years and can affect your insurance and driving privileges that entire length of time. For example, a $124.00 speeding ticket can cause a $50.00/mo. insurance increase, which is $600.00 increase for a year, which is $1800.00 for 3 years!
The effect is worse if it is not your only ticket on your driving record or if you get more subsequent traffic tickets. If you have other drivers on your insurance policy, such as a teenage son or a wife, their traffic tickets can impact your insurance rates too. Other factors that impact insurance rates can include your sex, age, number of years licensed in Washington State, other people on your police, miles regularly driven, type of vehicle, age of vehicle, the city where you live, accident claims, etc. Although this list is not exhaustive, traffic tickets, accident tickets, and accident claims are the biggest factor for an insurance company is deciding to increase your insurance rates.
