What counts as a traffic violation?
Traffic violations can include a range of unsafe practices while driving a motor vehicle. These violations can 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. Another traffic violation can be using a cell phone while driving. These charges can lead to a variety of consequences based on the situation and the amount of charges that the individual has on their record. By cutting down on these traffic violations, it can create safer conditions on the road so that drivers can avoid getting into accidents. Traffic violations are issued to limit their prevalence. Drivers should be focused on practicing good driving habits to limit accidents from occurring as frequently. Individuals should not only be worried about driving safely to protect themselves, but also to protect everyone else on the road.
What penalties can be in place for these violations?
A traffic violation can result in fines of varying amounts, possible jail time and points on your license depending on what you are in violation of and how many offenses you have against you. If you are consistently receiving charges for traffic violations, your consequences can become even harsher due to a pattern of behavior. It is important to seek legal help or your car insurance may increase due to your unsafe driving. Also, you may have the situation take a more serious turn by having your license suspended for a specific period of time. 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 due to the seriousness of a charge. Your license suspension may even be extended. In these cases, it is especially important to acquire the help of a professional attorney to best fight for your case. Practice safe driving to avoid facing any consequences.
