Consequences of a Traffic Ticket

There are many situations where the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) will take action against one’s license to suspend, revoke, or otherwise restrict driving privileges. In some instances, one offense alone is enough to suspend or revoke a person’s license. However, drivers are entitled to a hearing—an option they should undoubtedly pursue.

It used to be that if you did nothing, you would get a trial notice. Not anymore. You must affirmatively request a hearing or could be automatically suspended, which is where the Howard County traffic ticket lawyers at Shapiro Zwanetz & Lake come in. Call us now to get the ball rolling and protect your license.
