My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: SC and NC
I got a speeding ticket in September 2008 in NC. I did a prayer for judgment and attended 8 hours of traffic school. The points would not be reported unless I got another ticket within 3 years. In May 2011, I got a speeding ticket in SC. I hired a lawyer as it was not quite 3 years since the 2008 ticket and now I would have those points and the points from the 2011 ticket all at once. Yikes! Today I got an email from the lawyer 3 YEARS later saying my court date is next week. I have an email from the lawyer from October 2011 saying it was dismissed. I don't know what happened about that. I know points on your driving record come off after 3 years, but 3 years from when? from the date you received the ticket? From the date the fine (if any) was paid? If my lawyer can't get the 2011 ticket dropped, how will this effect my insurance now in 2014. Will I need to be concerned with the 2008 ticket as well?
