What are the Consequences of Traffic Law Violations?

Consequences of traffic law violations can vary depending upon what you’ve been accused of doing and whether or not you have any prior offenses. In some cases, you’ll merely be cited for a traffic infraction. In other circumstances, however, you could be arrested and charged with a misdemeanor or a felony offense- which obviously has much more serious consequences.

Some of the potential penalties that you could face due to accusations that you violated rules of the road include:

  • Points on your driver’s license, which could eventually result in a license suspension and which could lead to higher insurance costs.
  • A black mark on your driving record, which could be disqualifying if you apply for certain types of employment.
  • Administrative suspension of your driver’s license by the DMV, which is possible for certain offenses such as DUI.
  • Revocation or suspension of your license as a result of a criminal conviction.
  • Substantial fines totaling hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
  • A required Ignition Interlock device to be installed in your vehicle to detect if your blood alcohol concentration is over the legal limit.
  • Mandated drug and alcohol counseling.
  • Community service.

NY Traffic Firm can help you to try to avoid these consequences and other penalties that could result from accusations of violating traffic laws. You should contact an attorney as soon as you can if you’re under investigation or accused of wrongdoing so your lawyer can begin right away with investigating evidence against you and helping you to defend your good name.

How Can New York Traffic Ticket Lawyers Help You Minimize or Avoid Consequences?

Speed trap in NY When facing serious consequences for traffic offenses, it is important to select the best legal strategy so you can get through your involvement with the legal system with the minimum of penalties and consequences. Depending upon the nature of the accusations against you and the evidence that is available to prove you violated the rules of the road, there are different approaches that you could take to try to avoid consequences.

Some of the options a New York traffic ticket lawyer will discuss with you include:

  • Negotiating a plea agreement: You may be able to work out a deal where you admit guilt to a lesser offense than you have been accused of or where you agree to plead guilty in order to reduce the penalties that could otherwise be associated with being convicted of the offense.
  • Helping you to explore options to keep points off your license: Depending upon your alleged offense, you could potentially take a traffic safety class in order to avoid getting points on your license.
  • Defending you against accusations: If you want to plead not guilty, you should be ready to justify your behavior by raising an affirmative defense or to introduce reasonable doubt so that a case against you cannot be proved. Don’t just go to court and assume you’ll win by default because a police officer who cited you won’t show up. There’s a good chance that the officer will testify and you need to be prepared with a realistic defense strategy.
