People need to understand how easily it is to catch a charge driving down the road.
Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Recently, the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the Governor's Highway Safety Program ran another "Click it or Ticket" campaign in North Carolina. As was reported by the North Carolina Department of Transportation on June 11, 2013, this was the 20th anniversary of the "Click it or Ticket" campaign in North Carolina. North Carolina is the first in the nation to run a "Click it or Ticket" campaign. Like many other campaigns, the "Click it or Ticket" campaign is utilized to allow North Carolina to continue to operate safety programs in which traffic violators are caught.
For many drivers in the Capital of North Carolina during the Memorial Day weekend, the uncomfortable notion that they were now going to need a Raleigh Traffic Defense Attorney was realized. In total, the North Carolina Department of Transportation reported over 11,000 drivers were cited for seat belt and child restraint violations between May 20th to June 2nd, 2013. The enforcement of these charges was facilitated by almost 8,500 various check points and stepped up patrols.
"I actually drove through one of these check points and I was surprised how many officers were being utilized for this program," Raleigh Criminal Attorney M. Moseley Matheson stated. "Depending on how these checkpoints were facilitated, there may challenges that could be made to fight the tickets. North Carolina follows stringent guidelines under which check points can be operated and if not followed, any charge resulting from them should be thrown out."
These safety campaigns operated by the Governor's Highway Safety Program and the North Carolina Department of Transportation are reminders for the general public to follow traffic laws in North Carolina streets and highways. "The safety of everyone who travels are roadways is always top priority," stated North Carolina Department of Transportation Secretary Tony Tata stated for the June 11th article.
"People need to understand how easily it is to catch a charge driving down the road. Whether it is something serious like the Raleigh DWI Charge many of my clients catch, or something small like a red light charge, there can be serious impacts to the Driver's insurance as well as their ability to continue to drive in North Carolina," Wake County Criminal Attorney M. Moseley Matheson stated. "For people caught during these types of campaigns, they need to understand the benefit of having a lawyer evaluate their case to see whether any steps could be taken to reduce or even eliminate any negative impact."
