Traffic offenses can range from minor speeding tickets to serious offenses like vehicular manslaughter. Whether you have been ticketed for a simple traffic violation or arrested on more serious charges, it's important to have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side to defend your interests. Many people who have been ticketed for a traffic offense do not take their situation seriously enough. All traffic violations are serious offenses, and should never be taken lightly.

Traffic Violation Penalties
The penalties for a traffic offense will depend largely on the type of violation committed. For simple, everyday offenses like a speeding ticket, the penalties usually include a fine, traffic school, and points on your record. If you commit a serious offense, such as hit & run or vehicular manslaughter, you could be sentenced to jail, much larger fines, community service, probation, driver's license suspension, and more.
Every time you commit a traffic offense a point will be added to your driving record. Once you have accumulated a certain amount of points, your driver's license will be suspended.
