Law enforcement in Trinidad, Texas and surrounding Henderson County communities is keeping a close eye out for drivers who choose to break traffic law while behind the wheel. You may be pulled over by police officer in Trinidad and written a traffic ticket for a number of possible reasons, including for driving over the legal speed limit, running a red light or stop sign, driving with defective auto equipment, and even for failing to use a turn signal properly. No matter the reason behind the issuance of your traffic violation, it is up to you to respond to it before it goes past due, either by pleading guilty to it and allowing points to be added to your driving record, or by challenging the offense you have been charged with in a court of law. If you would rather not pay a fine and allow points to be added to your driving record, it would not be in your best interest to plead guilty to your violation. Instead, take action to dispute your traffic ticket, and with help from the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno. We are a well-respected traffic ticket law firm that has, since our establishment over 20 years ago, helped both Class C and CDL drivers defend against all forms of traffic violations in an effort to keep points off their driving records. We may be retained to provide you with the same legal defense in Trinidad. For additional information, please complete our Traffic Ticket Contact Form.
In the City of Trinidad, speeding tickets are perhaps written more often than any other traffic ticket. This is because driving over the legal speed limit is an easy traffic offense to commit, especially if you have a bad habit of driving too fast while behind the wheel. Perhaps you have been written a speeding ticket by a police officer in Trinidad, Texas. If you cannot afford to plead guilty to your speeding violation, or simply do not want your offense to be added to your clean driving record, it would not be wise to do so. Instead, consider disputing your speeding citation with help from Jack Byno & Associates. Our attorneys are often retained to seek favorable plea deals, such as reduced fines or deferred adjudication, on behalf of clients looking for an alternative to points added to their driving records, but we may also be hired to fight your speeding ticket in the presence of a judge, if it is concluded that your case would benefit more from a trial.
The second a Trinidad police officer hands you a traffic ticket, it becomes your responsibility to respond to the citation by the date it is due, whether by pleading guilty to it or by taking the necessary legal steps to challenge it. If you do not respond to your violation at all, but instead neglect it as if it was never issued to you, do not be surprised if the Trinidad Municipal Court takes disciplinary measured against you in the firm of a traffic warrant. If you are afraid that a jail sentence looms for you now that the Municipal Court has issued a warrant for your arrest, your fears may soon be justified, as you could be arrested at any time once a traffic warrant has been issued for you. If you are looking to get your Trinidad traffic warrant lifted in order to avoid arrest, but are unsure how to go about accomplishing this endeavor, look no further than the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno. If we are hired to lift your warrant and are able to do so successfully, you will no longer have to worry about being arrested, even during Warrant Roundup season. If we are also able to post your bond, your case may be represented in court by our law firm at a later date.
Just like the average, Class C motorist, someone who holds a commercial driver's license (CDL) may be pulled over at the discretion of a Trinidad police officer, and issued a traffic ticket. But unlike the average driver, a CDL holder must consider their means of living when deciding how to respond to their violation. This is because professional drivers, who include emergency vehicle operators, bus drivers, and commercial truckers, all rely on their clean driving records and safe driving habits as a form of job security. Points added to a CDL holder's driving record could reflect poorly on his or her ability to drive responsibly and safely, and in effect jeopardize their career. As a CDL driver with a pending traffic violation, it may therefore be in your best interest to dispute your Trinidad trucking violation rather than plead guilty to it. If you decide to retain legal representation from the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno, we may be able to seek a favorable deal on your behalf in court, in the place of points otherwise added to your driving record, although some plea deals, including probation and defensive driving courses, are unfortunately unavailable to commercial drivers.
If a Notice of Suspension is mailed by the Department of Public Safety (Texas DPS) to your address in Trinidad, it is meant to inform you that DPS has scheduled your driver's license for suspension. While your driver's license may be suspended for reasons including habitual Trinidad traffic violations on your driving record, DWI convictions, unpaid State Surcharges or even a failed medical exam, the Law Office of Attorney Jack Byno may be able to help you challenge your impending DL suspension in the Henderson County Justice Court. Your Notice of Suspension will provide you with a certain amount of time to request a DL suspension hearing at which to do this. Have you already lost a DL suspension hearing that was granted to you? Or perhaps you have not requested one, and the time for which you were given to do so is now up. In the case that your driver's license is now suspended, Jack Byno & Associates may still be able to help you stay behind the wheel legally. We may be able to apply for, on your behalf, a temporary driver's license known as an Occupational DL, or Essential Need License. If you are granted an ODL, you may use it to drive legally until your regular license is no longer suspended.
