We all get tickets every now and again. When we do, it’s tempting to think to ourselves, “I don’t need and attorney” or, “I’ll just pay the ticket.” While both of these options may save you some money in the short term, the long term consequences will far outweigh the few dollars you’ll save initially.

A simple ticket that you attempt to handle by yourself could result in thousands of dollars in increased insurance premiums if you’re not careful.
