Tehama County Traffic Tickets
Traffic tickets may not be issued to the same extent in Redding or other parts of Tehama County as in the more urban areas of California but they are still difficult to take and carry the same consequences.
A traffic ticket can be an infraction, most which have fines of no more than $250 and no possible jail time, or misdemeanors where you could spend up to one year in jail and pay thousands of dollars in fines, court costs, assessments, court-ordered programs, license reinstatement fees and increased insurance premiums.
Like any other offense or violation, you can defend yourself and hope you know what you are doing. You also have another choice—Hire a traffic ticket lawyer in Tehama County.
Do It Yourself and Face the Consequences
You can try to defend yourself. Sometimes the ticketing officer does not appear and the court dismisses your case, but don’t count on it. You will have to present a reasonable defense, know how to cross-examine the officer and offer testimony from witnesses in your defense. If you don’t know the law or what you are doing, you can make things worse.
You might try Trial by Declaration. Submit an explanation along with supporting documents as to why you are innocent of the violation and hope for the best, but the Tehama traffic court will typically accept the officer’s written statement over yours. But if you lose, you have 20 days to request a court trial. Then hire us.
