Traffic Law

NORTH CAROLINA TRAFFICLAWS AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF COMMON TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS

Getting a Traffic Ticket in North Carolina

 

Getting a ticket may affect your driving record, and have an impact on your wallet. In addition to fines and court costs, insurance companies have their own points systems, separate from the DMV's, so your insurance rates could skyrocket for common violations. Court visits may be mandatory, causing personal inconvenience. Depending on the violation, conviction of certain traffic offenses of North Carolina driving law may result in the loss of your driving privilege.

 

Waivable and Non-Waivable Offenses

When you receive a traffic ticket, the law enforcement officer will cite the motor vehicle statute(s) that you allegedly violated.

  • Waivable Offenses: Many offenses are waivable, meaning you can plead guilty, pay your fines, and waive your court appearance.

  • Non-Waivable Offenses:  More serious offenses are non-waivable. If any or all of your charges are non-waivable, you will have to go to court, whether you are pleading guilty or not guilty. There is no choice to enter a guilty plea and pay a fine. Your appearance in court is mandatory, and if you fail to appear, a judge can order that you be arrested.
