SEXNER’S PRO LEGAL TIP: A common type of case that is handled at the Aurora Branch Court is called a “failure to reduce speed”. This traffic citation is often given to a driver who gets into an auto accident by rear-ending another driver or otherwise hits another car by sliding or skidding into it.
Although this type of ticket is not a misdemeanor and holds no potential for jail time, it still is a serious matter that deserves serious consideration. First of all, it is a moving violation and if convicted, will appear on your driving record in a place that may affect your insurance rates. Depending on your previous driving record and whether you are over or under 21, such a conviction could even result in a suspension or a revocation of your driver’s license.
Secondly, if you plead guilty to such an offense, it can compromise your ability to properly defend yourself in the event that the other party sues you or your insurance company for personal injury or property damages. This is because when a person pleads guilty to even a minor offense such as this, that person cannot later claim that they are not at fault when sued for money damages. This is true whether you sign the ticket and mail in payment, as well as if you plead guilty in open court.
So, the very best legal advice is to consult an experienced attorney’s office, such as Mitchell S. Sexner & Associates LLC before paying or appearing alone in court on a ticket like this, especially if you were not insured at the time of the accident, if your insurance company is not considered a very good company, or if your policy limits are low.
