Why Do You Need a Traffic Lawyer in Baltimore?
From rolling through a stop sign to excessive speeding, traffic violations can range in severity. Whether on a road trip or in the neighborhood, traffic infractions can occur anywhere. Since the rules of the road differ depending on where a driver is, it is not uncommon for motorists to unwittingly break one of them. A local attorney should be consulted for the following traffic violations:
- Not stopping at a stop sign
- Failure to yield to another vehicle or pedestrian
- Failing to use a turn signal
- Not moving over for law enforcement or rescue vehicles
- Illegally passing a car
- Turning illegally
Moreover, there are many other types of traffic violations, some of which carry varying degrees of penalties, such as speeding, for which the penalty varies according to the speed the driver was allegedly traveling at. No matter what type of traffic charge you are facing, hiring a lawyer allows you to explore all your options and create a strong defense.
Strategies our firm can employ to defend you in your traffic ticket case, include:
- Contesting the accuracy of law enforcement's conclusion
- Questioning if the correct vehicle was issued the violation
- Proving the violation was legally justified or necessary to avoid danger
