Criminal Traffic Defense
Traffic offenses may seem minor on the surface, but they can have far-reaching impacts on your life through your car insurance rates, points on your driver’s license, or by affecting your employment if you drive as any part of your job.
When you get a ticket, you may think you should just pay it and move on with your life. However, paying a ticket is the same as a guilty plea, and if you’re charged with a criminal traffic offense such as aggressive driving, you don’t have the option of paying a ticket and must go through the court process.
Types of Traffic Offenses you could be charged with in Texas:
- DMV Hearings
- Driving While Suspended
- DUI / DWI
- Expired License
- Racing on the Highway
- No Valid Registration
- Reckless Driving
- Speeding Tickets
- Suspended License
- Traffic School
- Traffic Ticket Bail Bonds
- Traffic Warrants
- DPS Surcharges
- Hit & Run
- Fleeing and Attempting to Elude a Police Officer
- Vehicular Manslaughter
- Open Alcohol Container in Vehicle
If you plead guilty or are found guilty of a traffic infraction or a criminal traffic offense, you may find that possible consequences include:
- Jail time in the case of a misdemeanor or felony traffic violation
- Points on your driver’s license
- Suspension of your driver’s license
- Increased car insurance premiums
- Loss of your commercial driver’s license
- Increased likelihood of being found negligent in a civil lawsuit if your traffic violation resulted in an accident
- It’s always worth considering whether a Texas traffic defense lawyer can help you to minimize the effects of a traffic ticket on your life, or help you to fight a criminal traffic charge.
