What qualifies as a traffic violation?

When drivers are on the road, they should be driving in a safe and careful manner. This should help to limit accidents from occurring on the road. By limiting accidents, less people will be injured. If drivers are not operating their vehicles in a safe manner, they can cause accidents to occur that can injure another individual. This may involve a pedestrian or someone else in a motor vehicle. If drivers are breaking traffic laws, they may be faced with a traffic violation from a police officer. 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 faced previously. By cutting down on these traffic violations, it can create safer conditions on the road. If these individuals continue to commit traffic violations, they can be held responsible for this with continuous ticketing and possible license suspension.

What penalties can I face?

Traffic violations can cause tickets to be issued to drivers. This can lead to penalties for the driver. These charges can result in fines of varying amounts, possible jail time and points on your license if it is severe enough. If you are consistently receiving charges for traffic violations, your consequences can become even harsher for your case. It is important to seek legal help or your car insurance may increase to show that you are more of a liability. Also, you may be able to elevate the situation to include a consideration of a suspension on your license, which can greatly affect your life. 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.
