Traffic violations are not uncommon, and they range significantly in severity. In the Commonwealth of Virginia, when a person is guilty of a traffic offense, they face demerit points against their driver’s license as well as major fines.
The most common traffic violation issued in the Commonwealth is speeding. These tickets are issued when a person drives above the posted speed limit as well as when a person is driving too fast for roadway conditions. However, there is a range of other citations that are regularly handed out in and around Newport News, including the following:
There are many people who receive a traffic citation and are convinced that they should just pay the fine or go to court and handle the issue themselves. We want you to understand that paying a traffic fine essentially admits guilt to the violation. A person will not only be out of money, but they will receive demerit points against their license. An accumulation of enough points could even result in a license suspension.
For more serious violations, including reckless driving, DUI, driving on a suspended license, and other violations, a person can receive actual criminal charges along with their traffic violation. This could result in a person facing jail time, significant fines, and even a permanent mark on their criminal record.
A skilled traffic attorney can get involved in the case and conduct a complete investigation into the incident. They will rely not only on the evidence provided by law enforcement officials and prosecutors, but they will conduct an independent investigation to ensure that you are being treated fairly.
