Traffic Defense in Palmetto So You Can Drive Confidently Again

Adam Bantner knows that it’s inevitable for people to make mistakes behind the wheel. Sometimes, those mistakes get caught. A few common mistakes are speeding, running red lights, parking violations, faulty equipment and other traffic infractions. If you get caught breaking these traffic laws, local police will give you a ticket. Local branches of state courts will process the tickets.

A “strict-liability” offense is one in which you can be found guilty of the alleged offense without having criminal intent. The authorities will only need to prove that you committed the prohibited act, and that’s it.

Give Adam Bantner a call to improve your chances at beating any traffic violation, including charges like:

  • Driving on a Suspended License
  • Red-Light Camera Violations
  • Leaving the Scene of an Accident
  • Driving Under the Influence
  • Driver’s License Violations
  • Driving as a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO)
  • And more!

The images could be of adults who appear younger than they are, the material may have been downloaded by someone else with access to the computer, or, if the computer was purchased used, a prior user of the computer may have downloaded them.

We can help you build a strong defense if you’ve been charged in the Palmetto area.
