A traffic ticket can threaten your ability to drive and also add points to your insurance, which could cause your rates to skyrocket. By hiring a traffic ticket and traffic violation attorney, you can be assured that your case will be reviewed thoroughly. At the Law Offices of Ryan B. Addison, we seek to protect your license and keep your insurance rates from rising. We defend our clients against a wide variety of traffic tickets, including:
Do not proceed with a speeding ticket on your own unless or until you talk to an attorney. For example, did you know that simply paying off a ticket is an admission of guilt? Are you aware that two convictions of speeding over 55mph in a twelve-month period will result in the suspension of your license? There are simply too many opportunities for mistakes in this area. At the Law Offices of Ryan B. Addison, we are experienced in these matters and can help you save time and money.
Improper Equipment (IE)
Improper Equipment can occur if a vehicle has equipment or mechanical problems such as dangerous tires, an improper muffler, or a broken speedometer. IE is also a lesser-included offense to the offense of speeding. A prosecutor may allow a reduction to IE for speeding violations, so long as certain conditions are present. This is typically the best result an attorney can negotiate for you, aside from a dismissal.

Driving While License Revoked/Suspended (DWLR)
Driving is considered a privilege, not a right. However, most of us depend on that privilege to live normal lives and earn a living. Your driver’s license can be suspended for a number of reasons, such as too many traffic violations, a DWI/DUI offense, unpaid traffic tickets, failure to appear in court, or even the failure to pay child support. At the Law Offices of Ryan B. Addison, we seek to reverse the license suspension and help our clients enjoy the freedom of driving again.
Other types of tickets we can help with include:
- No Operator’s License (NOL)
- Careless/Reckless Driving (C/R)
- Hit and Run
- Inspection/Registration Violations
- No Vehicle Insurance
- Improper Turn/Failure to Yield
- Following Too Close
- Illegal Passing
- Passing a Stopped School Bus
- Stop Light/Stop Sign Violations
- Eluding/Evading Arrest
- Provisional License Violations
- Moving Violations Resulting from an Accident
Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC)
A “prayer for judgment continued” is a disposition after a plea of guilty where the judge suspends entering a judgment in the case. In traffic cases, a PJC essentially keeps any insurance or driver’s license points from accruing on your record for the underlying offense. Only one PJC can be granted per household every three years; a second PJC can be used within five years solely for the purpose of preventing the addition of driver’s license points.
