Hi. My name is Eb Rossi, and I’ve been representing people who get speeding tickets in Alamance County District Court for the past 15 years. During that time I have personally represented over 9,000 motorists with just one goal: to reduce or eliminate the imposition of insurance points. In fact, that goal is so important that we prominently state it in every contract.
If you’ve received a speeding ticket in Alamance County you have to know that we historically been one of the harder counties in the piedmont triad in which to resolve a speeding ticket. This was by design. While the counties that surrounded us routinely gave people an opportunity to plead to non moving violations (improper equipment), a former District Attorney stated his policy something like this, “the only thing improper is their right foot.” The quote may be a little off, but the intended sentiment is not. He took the position that people who speed should pay higher insurance rates. Accordingly, he was not going to let people plead to improper equipment.
Things have now changed in the county, but most of our District Court Judges still continue to limit their own discretion, refusing to grant a pjc (another form of relief) in cases where the officer alleges that the motorist was speeding more than 20 miles per hour over the speed limit. (The law actually allows judges to grant that relief in cases up to 25 miles per hour over the speed limit)
What this all means is that you have to know our forum. Be careful. Not knowing your forum means you may not get the best deal. Finally, you should also bear in mind that neither the D.A. nor the judge can give you legal advice.

If you’ve received a speeding ticket in Burlington, Graham, Haw River, or Mebane, North Carolina and have questions about how this traffic ticket might trigger drivers license points, insurance points, or otherwise affect your privilege to drive call us at (336) 570-1923.
How will this ticket affect my insurance? That’s one of the first questions we get when someone calls us about a traffic ticket in Alamance, Guilford, or Orange Counties. What follows is usually a statement to the effect of “I don’t want this to go against my insurance,” or “I don’t want any insurance points.”
Just what are insurance points and how do they work? The simplest answer is that points are part of a system developed by the insurance industry and government to charge higher auto insurance premiums on drivers who speed or are involved in other behavior that increases the risk that an insurance company will have to pay a claim. They are not same thing as drivers license points. In North Carolina, insurance points are governed by the Safe Driver Incentive Program.
What’s hard for people to understand is that insurance points are not the same as driver’s license points. However, in order to try to avoid insurance points you have to know what’s on a person’s driving record. To further complicate things, neither the judge nor the district attorney can give you legal advice. Moreover, it’s confusing have to juggle drivers license points and insurance points in your head when you don’t this for a living.
If you purchase your auto insurance in North Carolina, this link to the Department of Insurance’s website may be helpful. For example, if you are reading it correctly, it shows that a conviction for speeding 80/65 will result in insurance points that will raise your North Carolina auto insurance rates by at least 80%.
Does this mean that if you got a ticket for speeding 80/65 you will automatically be assessed insurance points that will raise your insurance by 80%? No! If you know what you are doing, it’s frequently possible to completely eliminate or reduce the imposition of insurance points. In fact, that’s the premise that we’ve built our whole practice around: eliminating or reducing the imposition of insurance points. Over the past 10 years we’ve served over 9,000 motorists and have prominently featured that goal in all our traffic contracts.
