Due to legal restrictions on the way insurance companies operate in Tulare County, almost any traffic ticket will trigger a sky-high auto insurance rate increase.
Like California, Hawaii does not allow insurance companies to use credit scores to determine risk; the companies claim that such a review enables them to identify drivers who are more likely to file fraudulent claims. So, driving record is about the only way to assess risk. As a result, a reckless driving ticket in Honolulu may send your rates up a staggering 291 percent. In other states, the increase is not nearly as dramatic; for example, in Louisiana, the same infraction normally triggers a 29 percent increase.

The indirect cost means that hiring a lawyer to fight your ticket is nearly always the most cost effective solution. As a bonus, an attorney can normally appear before the judge on your behalf, so you can avoid court and stay on the road.
