Traffic Offenses

While many individuals don’t consider a traffic offense to be that serious a matter, unresolved tickets can lead to serious consequences.  There are penalties and fines that will accrue with any traffic offense conviction, in addition to adding on to your driving record.

When there are too many infractions on your record, this can lead to higher insurance rates and even suspension of your driver’s license or jail time, depending on the type of offense.  By retaining a traffic offenses lawyer from James D. Owen, LLC, you can minimize the possible consequences and attain the best possible outcome.

Types of Traffic Offenses

There are many types of traffic offenses that can lead to serious consequences for you and some can have long lasting effects on your future as well.  These include

  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Driving with a suspended license (DUS)
  • Hit and run accidents
  • Tailgating
  • Seatbelt violations
  • Mechanical violations
  • Illegal u-turns
  • Illegal lane change
  • Running a red light

State law dictates that points be subtracted from your driving record for certain infractions.  Too many points, such as 12 in a two year time period, can result in license suspension.  Why face harsh fines, traffic school, higher insurance rates and possibly even jail when a skilled traffic offenses attorney can help to reduce or eliminate the offenses.
