Dayton, Ohio Traffic Violation Lawyers
Many people are inclined to just pay the ticket after they are pulled over for speeding, reckless driving or another traffic violation. However, what these people do not realize is that paying the ticket is essentially a guilty plea. Not only will the traffic conviction go on your criminal record, points will also be added to your driving record. Accumulation of 12 points within a two year period will cause you to lose your driving privileges. In addition, you may be required to file a SR-22 form (proof of high-risk insurance).
If you are concerned about the impact a traffic ticket could have on your ability to drive or your auto insurance rates, you should strongly consider speaking with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your rights and your options.
At the law firm of Stamps & Stamps, our traffic ticket lawyers represent Ohio residents charged with any moving violation, including:
- Reckless driving
- Failure to have physical control of your car
- Driving with a suspended, revoked or lost license

Fight Traffic Tickets; Don’t Just Pay the Fine
When representing clients who have been ticketed for driving with a suspended license, our first step is to contact the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), find out why the license was suspended and determine what we have to do to resolve the suspension. By resolving the suspension prior to the court appearance, we are often able to obtain a dismissal of charges or a reduction to a lesser offense.
If you have been charged with a minor traffic offense, we can often appear in court for you so you won’t have to miss work to contest your ticket.
We offer a free initial consultation to discuss the issues involved in your traffic ticket.
