Drivers are written traffic tickets every day in Mertens, Texas, but when you are the one being written the ticket, the experience can be stressful. It may be especially stressful in the case that you hold a commercial driver's license. If you do, for a career as a bus driver, trucker, or other professional motorist, you may be required by your employer to maintain your clean driving record. If you were to plead guilty to your Mertens CDL violation, even if you received it at a D.O.T. stop, points may be applied permanently to your record, placing your career on the line. If you were to challenge your charges instead, your record may be protected.
Do you have a penchant for driving too fast while behind the wheel? If so, you are not alone in this bad habit, but driving over the speed limit is still a ticketable offense. Perhaps you were recently issued a speeding ticket while behind the wheel in the Navarro County town of Mertens, Texas. No matter whether you hold a Class C driver's license or CDL, and no matter how many miles over the speed limit you were driving at the time you were issued your citation, you must respond to your ticket by the date it is due. You may respond to your violation by pleading guilty to speeding, or by making an effort to challenge your violation in court. If you have decided against pleading guilty to speeding, in hopes of keeping points off your driving record, a speeding ticket attorney may be able to help you with this endeavor.
Even a single unpaid Mertens traffic ticket could potentially result in a bench warrant for your arrest, accrual of interest on your fine, additional court or filing fees, a blemish on your driving record (for traffic-related citations), you being prohibited from renewing your driver's license or vehicle registration, and/or intervention of a collection agency (and the often-harassing ways in which they attempt to recover past due amounts).
