Alameda County Traffic Tickets
Alameda County is California’s 7th largest county with a population exceeding 1.5 million. It encompasses most of the East Bay region and is dotted with numerous interstate and state highways. Like many urban areas, you are vulnerable to traffic tickets from red light cameras, unsafe lane changes, speeding and DUIs.
How Do You Successfully Challenge a Traffic Ticket?
Not every ticket issued is based on solid evidence. Also, if you have had another ticket recently, you are ineligible for traffic school. And if you want to challenge the ticket in court, is your sole strategy hoping the officer fails to appear?
Your best strategy in challenging any traffic violation is to hire a traffic ticket expert. This is your best opportunity to get your ticket dismissed resulting in points added to your record and have no effect on your insurance. Too many points results in suspension of your license.
Differences between Infractions and Misdemeanors
Traffic infractions do result in points unless they are successfully contested. The least you can be penalized is a fine of $250 and a point on your driving record. These include speeding, red light camera violations and other non-misdemeanor moving violations.
Misdemeanors, however, can result in jail time up to one year and/or a fine not to exceed $1000. Of course, you can pay far more than that in court costs and assessments, license reinstatement fees and mandatory participation in court-approved classes not to mention the increase in your insurance premiums. If convicted of some of these, you risk loss of your driver’s license.
Typical traffic violations that Ticket Snipers handles:
- Red Light Camera
- Turn Violations
- Lane Vioaltions
- Carpool Lane
- Driving without proof of insurance
- Any non-misdemeanor violation issued in California
Any of these can result in fines and costs that may far exceed $1,000. But what if you could contest your ticket at a reasonable cost and with a better than average chance of succeeding?
