Traffic violations are often thought of as minor offenses. However, without proper legal advice, they could become major problems. The South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles will suspend your license if you accumulate too many points against your license over a period of time. Speeding, reckless driving and acquiescing (street racing) are all offenses which carry not only a fine, but also points against your license. Additionally, the accumulation of points against your license will result in increased insurance premiums. Having an attorney who can successfully resolve these issues could be the difference between you driving and riding shotgun.
