Sutter County Traffic Tickets
Sutter County, located in the Sacramento Valley, is one of California’s smallest counties. The county seat is Yuba City. Sutter County is home to the Sutter Buttes, a volcanic formation whimsically known as the “World's Smallest Mountain Range.” Most of the county is flat, making it ideal for farming and for grazing livestock.
The police in Yuba City wrote more than 900 speeding tickets in 2014. It may seem that paying the ticket is the easiest thing to do, but the true cost of a $35 ticket, once court costs, surcharges, and increased insurance premiums are added to the base fine, is more than $700. That doesn’t count the risk of losing your license as points accumulate due to traffic ticket convictions. To avoid that cost and stop points from being assessed, ticketed drivers need help from a traffic ticket lawyer.
Traffic accidents are common on Sutter County roads. Accidents allegedly caused by DUI have produced fatalities. Other multiple-vehicle accidents shut down traffic. Nearly every traffic accident, even if only a fender-bender, results in a traffic ticket. Drivers might be cited for following too close, failing to yield, or failing to signal a turn. Ticketed drivers need the help of a traffic ticket lawyer who practices in Sutter County to avoid high fines and points that might lead to a suspended license.
