Motion for Appropriate Relief (MAR) by Wake County Traffic Attorney Wiley Nickel

Have you ever received a speeding ticket in North Carolina? Did you just pay it off by mailing back the citation with payment?  If you did that you probably found that your insurance rates went through the roof.  Filing a motion for appropriate relief may be a way to reverse the bad effects caused by that decision.

When you pay a traffic ticket you are pleading guilty.  When you plead guilty to a traffic offense, points are applied to your driving record and to your insurance record.  What does this mean?  It means your insurance rates will increase.  In North Carolina, insurance companies can surcharge you per point placed on your record. This is why it is good to consult with Attorney before your scheduled court date.  My advice is DO NOT pay off your Raleigh area traffic ticket until you speak with a Wake County Speeding Ticket Attorney.
