How can an attorney help protect a young driver and their license?
Young drivers on provisional licenses are subject to easy suspension by the MVA due to an accumulation of points. When any driver gets a payable traffic ticket, our first thought many times may be to “just pay it.” But, when we “just pay” these tickets, we are admitting guilt and, after therefore now subject to the maximum fines and the accumulation of points on our driving records. Too many points on our driving record can trigger our license to be suspended by the MVA. For young drivers, that suspension trigger is even more sensitive. Call a Perry Hall criminal defense lawyer today to see how we can help your young driver with their traffic tickets and protect their privilege to drive.
