Kentucky Traffic Defense Attorney Serving Cincinnati, Ohio & Covington, Kentucky
A little-known fact is that the highways of Kentucky are the most traveled in the country. People are either going south for vacation or driving home from vacation, and Kentucky often falls in the middle of those visited locales. The result is more opportunities for traffic tickets.
Unfortunately, approximately 95% of people who are cited make the mistake of just paying the ticket. That could be a costly error: If your employment centers on driving, you could actually lose your job, or you could see your insurance rates go up significantly.

Protecting Your Rights in Kentucky Starts with An Aggressive and Proven Defense Strategy
The ultimate goal is to keep your driving record clean. But costs are always a concern too. Frankly, when it comes to non-criminal traffic tickets, a non-moving violation (e.g. broken taillight) or a zero point speed is the best option. With an agreed plea, you don't have to worry about driving back for a trial and you get the clean driving record you seek. A trial exposes you to a lot of extra costs (time, gas, taking off work, etc....) that most people don't want to be bothered with.
The obvious traffic charges that are actually criminal and could include jail time are OVI/DUI, leaving the scene of an accident and driving on a suspended license.
You also need to keep in mind there are some jurisdictions that just won't negotiate traffic tickets. I have experience working all over the State of Kentucky, and I know which jurisdictions will negotiate and which ones won't. I won't waste your money trying to get a ticket amended if it's not an option in your jurisdiction. Of course, I am always happy to take a case to trial after reviewing all the favorable facts for your case.
