Traffic offenses are certainly the crimes which are charged most. While most traffic cases do not see the courtroom, they can take an unexpected financial toll on the recipient of the traffic ticket. In addition, most traffic violations carry “points” which are placed against your license. If you accumulate too many points during a given time period your driver’s license may be suspended. In some cases, a traffic offense can subject the alleged offender to jail time. Too many times individuals charged with traffic offenses make the unwise decision to defend themselves, or simply do not defend against the ticket at all. Just like every other criminal offense, the government must prove every element of the traffic offense beyond a reasonable doubt. And you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. The help of our experienced criminal defense attorneys can help you avoid conviction of your traffic charge.
