Traffic warrants- many people have old tickets that they either forgot about or just didn’t take care of in a timely manner. Many times these will eventually cause a person’s license to become invalid. Additionally, you are subject to be arrested if you have outstanding warrants. If you are struggling with a traffic warrant, it might be time to call an Austin ticket lawyer like Kelly McMahan.

Unfortunately, tickets that aren’t taken care of in a timely manner get progressively severe. With enough tickets or over enough time, your license will become invalid and a warrant can be issued against you. At that point, you could be arrested, which significantly increases costs, is worse on your record and takes up a lot of your time. Avoid this entire scenario with the help of an Austin traffic lawyer.

Most Texas drivers faced suspension of licenses in cases that they did not realize had serious reprecussions. Under Texas law, driving while your license is suspended typically does not lead to jail time on the first offense, but could end up costing you more in fines and an even longer suspension.
Whether you drive when your Texas license is invalid, revoked, denied, suspended or canceled, you will be subject to additional driver’s license suspension for the same period of time as originally suspended. Furthermore you could be charged with a misdemeanor and face negative repercussions.
