Most people face going to traffic court some time in their life. For some, it is a simple inconvenience and a small fine. For others, it can mean jail time, loss of license, traffic courses and even community service.

Traffic Charges Aren’t Always Small

Traffic charges include minor violations like speeding, running a red light or having a headlamp out, but can also include very serious charges. Some types of cases we handle include:

  • Careless Driving;
  • DUI or DWAI;
  • Reckless Driving;
  • Hit and Run;
  • No Proof of Insurance;
  • Driving Under Suspension;
  • Driving under Revocation;
  • Duty to Report Accidents;
  • Eluding/Evading.

Careless Driving/Reckless Driving

If you are in an accident that the police determined was your fault, there is a good chance you could be charged with careless driving. If the accident resulted in an injury, the possible penalties increase substantially. These serious traffic cases also carry serious points on your license.

For example:

  • Careless Driving (4 points),
  • No Insurance (4 points),
  • Reckless Driving (8 points),
  • DUI (12 points),
  • Duty to report accidents (12 points). Read more about point suspensions.
