A traffic violation can be a criminal offense

| Feb 19, 2016 | Criminal Defense |

A criminal traffic violation is a big deal. Depending on the circumstances, this could result in a license suspension, fine, or even time in prison.

If you are charged with this type of crime, it is important to understand your legal rights. The last thing you want is to get a criminal record because of a traffic violation.

Some of the most common criminal traffic violations include:

— Driving with a suspended license.

— Driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.

— Driving under revocation.

— Refusing to take a breath test.

— Reckless or careless driving.

— Allowing an unlicensed driver to operate your vehicle.

— Hit and run.

— Vehicular homicide.

— Vehicular assault.

As you can see, some of these traffic violations are more serious than others. For example, the consequences of vehicular homicide are more serious than driving with a suspended license. Even so, regardless of the crime of which you have been charged, you need to do your best to avoid additional trouble.
