Cited for a Traffic Crime?
Unlike a simple speeding ticket, there are some driving offenses that should be take very seriously and can result in jail time and the loss of your driver's license. If you are pulled over and issued a ticket for a traffic violation, then you need legal assistance on your side. It is important for you to know that just because you were given a ticket does not mean that you can simply pay the fine and be done. If the citation is marked "criminal traffic" then you must appear in court. A skilled representative may be able to help you in your situation.
Negligent driving can include speeding, running a red light, and other offenses. This is most often a misdemeanor offense that can result in up to 90 days in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. There are some lesser offenses that can result in up to $250 in fines.
Reckless driving involves actions that demonstrate blatant disregard for the safety of others on the road. Excessive speeding and other actions can result in up to one year in jail and up to $5,000 in fines for a criminal conviction.
Hit and Run
If you are involved in an accident with another vehicle, then you have the responsibility to stop and provide contact information. A failure to stop and fulfill your duties can result in hit and run charges which will carry severe penalties for conviction.
