Traffic Violation Implications
In many instances, a traffic violation will result in a ticket and a black mark on your driving record. Many of us will simply pay the ticket and forget about the implications. However, the reality is this – every traffic violation you commit can result in more than just a black tick on your driving record. You are also looking at higher insurance fees every month on top of the fines and penalties. Furthermore, traffic violations can add up to misdemeanor offenses. You may not only be looking at a poor driving record but also heavy fines, jail time, license revocation, vehicle impoundment and anger management classes.
If you are found to be driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher, then you could be arrested for driving while intoxicated. If this is your first offense, you are most likely looking at a fourth degree DUI misdemeanor charge. However, if there are aggravating factors present, such as a child in the car or a blood alcohol content level higher than .2, then you might be looking at a gross misdemeanor charge.
Speeding and Reckless Driving Arrests
Speed limit violations, speeding in a construction zone or school zone, reckless driving, erratic lane changes and road rage can all be classified as traffic violations. You will most likely be handed a ticket by the arresting officer. In some instances, you may need to attend anger management courses or you may lose your license. It is possible to fight these charges, especially if the ticket was given on unjust grounds.
Hit and Run Violations
Hit and run violations can be classified as a felony offense in certain instances which is why it is imperative to seek legal counsel as soon as you are accused of being involved in a hit and run case. If you are accused of a hit and run, you are innocent until enough evidence has been collected to prove you are guilty.
Driving without a License Violations
If your license has been revoked or suspended or if you are caught driving without adequate insurance, then you will most likely lose your license for even longer and be facing further penalties and fines. It is possible to fight back against these convictions with the right legal defense.
