Charlotte Traffic Ticket FAQs

North Carolina law does require individuals to appear in Court when they receive speeding tickets at specific speeds. However, while the officer was correct in his statement of North Carolina law, our traffic attorneys can get your mandatory appearance waived, which saves you from having to appear in court. Every client of Rosensteel Fleishman, PLLC is sent a waiver form which allows the attorney to handle their case without the client being present. While there are situations where, in the attorney’s opinion, it might be in the best interest of the client to make an appearance before the judge, this is typically the exception to the rule. For more information on how your Charlotte, NC speeding ticket will be handled please contact us.
Charlotte Law Firm Review
I had a serious speeding ticket driving around Charlotte and was very concerned with driving points and subsequent insurance problems. Mr. Rosensteel’s staff and paralegal were the first to connect with me. Pat took her time explaining all my options and collecting all the documents. Mr. Rosensteel represented me and must have presented a compelling argument. My case was closed with much better results than expected, and my driving record remains clean. I was very impressed with the results and dealing with this firm will make you feel comfortable and you will get all the attention that you feel you need. I strongly recommend them to anyone with these kind of legal issues.

Traffic Ticket Question and Answers

THE QUESTION
“My Gaston County speeding ticket was for more than 20mph over the speed limit. Can I lose my North Carolina driving privilege?”

THE ANSWER
Yes. However, the NC traffic attorneys of Rosensteel Fleishman, PLLC have ways to help you keep your license. During our consultation with you, we will discuss a number of factors which will assist us in dealing with the district attorney to help you keep your license and protect your insurance.


THE QUESTION
“I received a NC traffic ticket. I live in another state. Is the North Carolina ticket going to affect my insurance?”

THE ANSWER
While the Department of Motor Vehicles in your home state will probably become aware of the North Carolina traffic citation, the question of how the citation will affect your insurance depends on your local DMV and how your NC traffic ticket is handled. Therefore, it is important to contact a traffic attorney at Rosensteel Fleishman, PLLC to effectively handle your NC traffic ticket.


THE QUESTION
“My teenager just received a Charlotte traffic ticket for 17 miles over the speed limit and was arrested. Why?”

THE ANSWER
Beginning January 1, 2012, a new North Carolina law went into effect that requires officers to arrest any 16 or 17 year old who carries a learner’s permit or a provisional license if that person is charged with a criminal moving violation. Along with the required arrest, there is also an automatic license suspension for thirty days, regardless of whether the teen is convicted of the offense.

This may seem like a reasonable proposition; after all, criminal moving violations include things like Driving While Impaired and Illegally Transporting Spent Nuclear Fuel. However, more mundane violations, such as speeding more than 15 mph over the speed limit and speeding more than 80 mph, also qualify. That means that a 16 year old who is cited with 71 mph in a 55 mph zone is going to be cuffed and taken to the police station for mug shots and fingerprinting. Additionally, that teen is going to immediately lose her license for thirty days and may have to post a bond to be released. Similarly, an 81 mph citation in a 70 mph zone or any reckless driving offense would trigger the arrest and suspension requirement. There are even some offenses that do not require the teen to be driving that can result in the arrest and suspension, such as failing to remain at the scene of an accident as a passenger, or allowing someone else to operate your car in a speed competition.

Therefore, it is important to contact a traffic attorney at Rosensteel Fleishman, PLLC as soon as possible.


THE QUESTION
“I just got a Union County speeding ticket but there are some mistakes on the ticket. Can I get the ticket thrown out?”

THE ANSWER
The answer depends on the severity of the mistake. North Carolina has adopted notice pleading requirements. As such, the ticket only needs to provide the bare bone facts to be valid. Mistakes about the time, the name of the road or your driver’s license number are usually not fatal mistakes. However, there can be some instances where your NC speeding ticket is not valid, and it is in your best interest to discuss this with a NC traffic attorney of Rosensteel Fleishman, PLLC.


THE QUESTION
“I just got a Cabarrus County speeding ticket. How is this going to affect my insurance?”

THE ANSWER
The answer depends on the speed of the ticket, your prior record, the record of those in your household, and how your ticket is handled. Our NC traffic lawyers have handled NC traffic violations for individuals across North Carolina. We are always mindful of our clients’ desire to protect against an insurance increase. Since the insurance rates are set via the North Carolina General Statutes, our NC traffic lawyers will be able to tell you how your ticket will affect your insurance. For more information on this subject, please see our article on NC Speeding Tickets and Insurance.


THE QUESTION
“I just got a NC traffic ticket for racing. Can I lose my car?”

THE ANSWER
The answer depends on which NC racing violation you were charged with. If you have been charged with prearranged racing you face the possibility of losing your vehicle. For more information on this subject, please see our article on North Carolina Racing Violations.
