Speeding Ticket Suspensions

speeding tickets can cause a license suspension

Many of my clients do not understand the potential affects that a seemingly simple traffic ticket could have on their license privilege. There are many speeding violations that could result in a suspension in the discretion of the NC DMV. Believe me, no one wants the discretion to suspend a license to be left in the hands of the DMV. For instance, if one is convicted of speeding over 55 mph twice in a 12 month period their license may be revoked. The important dates to look at are the first conviction date and the OFFENSE DATE of the second conviction. As a result, one cannot simply continue the second violation until after 12 months from the earlier conviction in order to avoid a suspension. Another common possible suspension violation is speeding over 75 when the speed limit is 65 of less. In these cases it is very important to hire an attorney. Although a limited privilege may be available in these circumstances those can be very expensive to maintain and are “limited” in scope.
