Traffic Offense Defenses in South Carolina
Common South Carolina Traffic Violations Include:
- following too closely,
- driving with a suspended license, DUS
- driving without insurance,
- careless driving, and
- reckless driving.
Many people do not consider that in addition to your traffic citation, you can lose points off of your driver’s license and you may be forced to pay increased insurance premiums.
When making your decision about how to best handle your traffic ticket, you need to make sure that you understand the consequences of your conviction. A plea of guilty, nolo contendere, which means that you are not admitting guilt but that you do not contest the charge, or simply forfeiting your bond are all considered a conviction in South Carolina.
In SC, if you accumulate a total of 12 points your license may be suspended. Your license may also be suspended if you fail to pay your traffic ticket within 12 months of the day it is issued.
