Getting a traffic ticket in Dallas is annoying and time-consuming. But serious problems start when traffic violations pile up and are not correctly dealt with on the front end. If neglected or not properly handled, a Judge may issue an arrest warrant, and DPS can suspend your DL.
However, a Dallas traffic ticket defense attorney can provide a strong defense and protect your rights. The Dallas traffic violation lawyers at ANDERSON & ANDERSON, LLP can help you fight your traffic tickets in an effort to obtain the best results to keep your driving record clean. Depending on the individual circumstances of your case, we can ask for dismissal with no money owed to the Court.
Many Texans do not realize that by not addressing their traffic violations in a timely manner, the consequences will be more than just additional fines and fees. If you do not address your ticket prior to the appearance date, a Judge may issue a warrant for your arrest.
Do not panic and simply pay the fine. In Texas, paying a fine is an admission of guilt, and a conviction will be entered on your driving record. Too many convictions could result in a driver’s license suspension. A suspended driver’s license can disrupt your life. You could lose your job among other things. It is best to have your case reviewed by an experienced traffic ticket attorney.
If your traffic ticket is in warrant status, contact ANDERSON & ANDERSON, LLP in Dallas. We will work to have the warrant lifted in a timely manner and represent you in Court.

Another potential problem with an unpaid traffic ticket violation is the State of Texas may place an OMNI hold on your driver’s license, i.e., renewal of your driver’s license is denied. OMNI holds cannot be cleared until a bond has been posted on the case to clear the warrant. Some Courts refuse to lift the OMNI holds until a final disposition has been reached on the case.
Before paying your tickets, consult ANDERSON & ANDERSON, LLP. We will work to have the holds lifted so that you can renew/reinstate your driver’s license.
Do outstanding traffic tickets stress you out? There is no doubt that unpaid traffic tickets can raise your blood pressure. Avoid the stress and contact ANDERSON & ANDERSON, LLP.

If you have a traffic ticket, you may be tempted to simply pay it. Please note that in the State of Texas, simply paying a ticket is an admission of guilt. The Court will report the offense to DPS as a conviction on your driving record. This may result in increased automobile insurance premiums or possible license suspension depending on the circumstances. Below are some of the common questions about Texas traffic ticket violations.
Yes. The Court must give the Department of Public Safety all conviction records which involve operating a motor vehicle in the State. So, most traffic violations will appear on your record, and points will be assessed.
All traffic citations have an Appearance Date. All Courts have different time frames in which to timely respond to an alleged offense. If you miss the appearance date, a warrant may be issued for your arrest. In addition, you may also receive a subsequent offense – a Failure to Appear or a Violate Promise to Appear. Contact our law firm. ANDERSON & ANDERSON, LLP can help.
In the interest of keeping track of driver behavior, the DPS Driver Responsibility Program assesses points for each moving violation – two points for any in-state and our-of-state conviction and three points for a conviction resulting in a crash. The points remain on your driving record for three years from the date of the conviction. When a certain number of points are accumulated, the driver will face a driver license suspension.
Not all traffic violations lead to points. If you receive a ticket for travelling 10 mph or less over the posted speed limit or a seat belt violation, you will not incur any points.
