A driver with several outstanding traffic violations may lose driving privileges as well as pay heavy fines. Traffic offenses can range from a misdemeanor to a felony.

Penalties for Traffic Violations
Traffic violations can affect a driving record and insurance rates. It is always best to satisfy citations once received. Driving without a license, or insurance are traffic violations but are serious enough that they may necessitate legal defense by an experienced criminal defense attorney.
Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a major traffic offense with severe consequences, especially if the offender has prior convictions or caused an accident resulting in injuries or deaths. Leaving the scene of an accident is likewise a major offense if it involves significant property damage and injuries or deaths. Penalties for serious traffic offenses can include incarceration, probation, fines, community service, and court-mandated counseling programs.
Convictions for traffic offenses can have an adverse affect on an individual that makes it important to have competent legal defense to reduce or nullify the traffic violation charges.
