How can a traffic violation affect me?

Every day people get into their cars and drive from one location to another. Whether people are commuting to work in the morning or making their ride home, they face the dangers that can be associated with the road. As drivers, we try to practice the safest driving possible. Not only do we do this to protect ourselves, it is for our passengers as well. We should also be thinking about the consequences our poor driving can have on those motor vehicles that share the road with us. A moment of distraction can cause catastrophic effects on the road. When people are driving unsafely, they are putting their lives and those around them at risk. This is why traffic violations are taken seriously. If you have been charged with a traffic violation, you may face serious fines or worse. To best help your situation, seek a consultation from our attorneys. We can provide you with the legal counsel you need about your specific situation.

What are some traffic violations?

Although some traffic violations may not seem serious, some of them can have a big impact on your life. Traffic violations include speeding, driving with a suspended or revoked license, vehicular manslaughter, negligent driving, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and fraudulent use of a license. Using a cell phone while driving can also be considered a traffic violation. With these charges comes a variety of consequences offenders may face.

These charges can result in fines of varying amounts, possible jail time and points on your license. If you consistently receive charges for traffic violations, your consequences may become even harsher. It is important to seek legal help or your car insurance may increase. Also, you may be able to elevate the situation to include a consideration of a suspension on your license.

When individuals are charged with driving with a suspended license, they may face harsh penalties. If your license was suspended due to a driving while intoxicated charge and you were charged with driving with a suspended license, your consequences may increase in magnitude. You may even have the suspension of your license be extended. In these cases, it is especially important to acquire the help of a professional attorney to best fight for your case.
