St. Paul Traffic Violation Lawyers
Guiding You Through the Process of Challenging Your Citation
Often, when people are issued traffic citations, they simply pay the fine and go on about their lives. In some rare cases, people put the ticket aside and forget about it. Unfortunately, either of these two actions can have negative consequences. They could result in driver's license suspension, increased insurance rates, or the Department of Public Safety (DPS) sending the case to collections. If you've been ticketed for a traffic violation, know that you have options to fight it or attempt to reduce the fine amount.

What Happens If I Pay a Ticket in Minnesota?
If you were cited for a traffic violation, you have the option to pay it. Numerous routes exist to take care of the ticket financially. You can pay online, by phone, through the mail, or in person.
However, just because there are convenient ways to pay the ticket and get it off your mind, that does not mean this is the best option for you. Paying a citation is akin to admitting guilt to the violation. If you were cited for a certain offense, the court will report that information to the DPS. Depending on the circumstances, having that mark placed on your driving record may result in the suspension of your driver's license.
Rather than pay your ticket, reach out to our St. Paul attorneys to discuss your situation. We'll let you know what your options are for taking care of it.
Our team provides legal representation for a variety of traffic violation matters, including, but not limited to:
- Careless driving
- Failure to obey a stop sign or traffic control device
- Failure to yield for a pedestrian in a crosswalk
- Driving without a valid driver's license
- Driving with a suspended, revoked, or canceled driver's license
- Failure to wear a seat belt
What Happens If I Don't Pay My Ticket?
If you don't pay the fine and you don't make an appointment to challenge the ticket, you could face several consequences. For instance, additional fees will be added, and the DPS may suspend your driver's license. Your case may also be sent to a collection agency.
