Q: If I am a given a citation that relates to a traffic accident, should I contest it?

A: Most people would instinctively say, “Yes.” However, a decision made out of emotion is not always the best one. Before deciding whether or not to contest a citation, consider your chances of success. In addition, take a moment to consider how much it will cost you to dispute and what the legal ramifications will be if you lose.

If you are still uncertain, consider visiting an attorney who specializes in traffic law and let him/her advise you on whether or not to contest your citation. Depending on the accident, there may be a lot of complicated issues that would be better handled by a licensed attorney.
