Not a week goes by that we don’t get someone calling our office asking us whether or not the fact that they were cited for a “traffic infraction” will hurt their insurance premiums. Most of the time the question comes on the heels of being cited with using a cell phone or not wearing a seatbelt.

The trouble arises because most people believe those types of citations won’t affect their insurance rates, but are confused by the fact that they are being charged with a “traffic infraction.” They are unsure of whether or not that designation makes the ticket a moving violation for insurance purposes.

If you want to know the answer to that question, check out the podcast!
