Many people brush off traffic citations as minor inconveniences, but the reality is that a traffic citation almost always comes with some sort of penalty. In some cases, these penalties can be severe, especially when the citation is ignored or not dealt with properly. At Randall Page, P.C., our Virginia traffic citation attorneys want to discuss the penalties associated with some of the most common traffic tickets we help clients handle. We have a thorough understanding of the courts and traffic citation process of the Greensville and Southampton County areas.
Most people just think of traffic tickets as coming with fines that they can pay and be done with the issue. However, it is important to realize that most traffic violations result in points counting against their license in the Commonwealth of Virginia. When a person accumulates enough points, their license can be suspended or revoked.
However, many traffic violations come with more penalties than just points and fines. Some Virginia traffic violations are considered misdemeanors. Some of the most common misdemeanor traffic offenses include the following:
Some serious traffic violations could be considered a felony. This can include third offense DUI convictions, hit and run accidents when a victim is seriously injured or killed, intentional reckless driving, and more.
In Southampton County, the towns of Boykin and Courtland are areas where we see many of these citations arise, as well as in Emporia, where I-95 and I-58 come together.
If you or somebody you love has received a traffic citation in or around the Courtland or Emporia areas, please speak to a qualified attorney as soon as possible. At Randall Page, P.C., we have extensive experience helping clients handle a wide range of traffic citations. Take a look at the penalties above. Are those something you are willing to deal with on your own? Let our Virginia traffic citation attorneys get you through this. Our goal is to get your citation reduced or dismissed altogether.
