Not all tickets are the same, and, therefore, the consequences of paying your traffic ticket online aren’t the same in every situation. You may think that paying your ticket online is the easiest option compared with hiring an attorney or going to court. However, once you pay your ticket, you may be admitting guilt to a moving violation.
What Could Happen if You Pay Your Ticket Online
That depends on the type of ticket issued by Virginia police. For example, when you pay a speeding ticket, you may:
- Add significant demerit points to your license
- Increase your car insurance costs
The potential consequences may be more significant if you have other recent moving violations.
