Most people think of a traffic violation as a minor situation and sometimes one to just ignore. Governments see the high monetary value of partnering up with private IT companies to place red light, stop sign and speed cameras everywhere they can and split the proceeds up. Many of the tickets issued are done so in error. The odds of you receiving traffic tickets on the road are now up 500 percent in the last decade as a result of a growing trend for governments to earn new income this way. Many of the tickets issued are done so in error, and it is up to you to prove it was done so in error.
What does the government care? So you receive a ticket for a traffic offense, such as speeding, and you pay the ticket, ignore challenging the ticket and take the points against your driving record. However, you are able to fight the citation and keep your driving record clean with no points attached. If you do not fight the ticket, you may be facing additional issues in the future for example a substantial rise in your insurance rates or worse being dropped by your insurance company which is actually allowed in the State of Maryland. You would then be forced to accept Government-issued auto insurance called the Maryland Auto Insurance Fund or “MAIF” up to five times the cost of normal auto insurance rates in order to legally drive your vehicle again. Fines for driving without insurance on the road can be in the thousands of dollars.

Consequences Have A Quick Domino Effect Against You
If you have received a traffic ticket, it is important to take action. If you ignore the ticket, your situation will become worse, and potentially grow into a serious criminal offense. Not paying or fighting a ticket can turn into larger fines against you, and if you get another ticket without having dealt with the first one, you may even be facing jail time. We have had many clients this has actually happened to where they were facing actual jail time for ignoring traffic tickets. Most people do not know that Virginia has reciprocity with Maryland and Washington, D.C., and vice versa meaning that problems in all three jurisdictions can be combined and used against you together creating one big mess.
