What is a
A Traffic Ticket is a civil infraction due to breaking a traffic law. This means that there is no possibility of jail if you are given a traffic ticket by a police officer. Certain criminal offenses that happen on the road are actually criminal charges and not traffic tickets.
Examples of these include OWI/DUI, Driving While License Suspended (DWLS), and Reckless Driving. Please see our Misdemeanor Information Center for more information on which traffic offenses qualify as criminal offenses.
What Types Of Punishment Exist For A Traffic Ticket?
The two main punishments for a traffic ticket are fines which you pay to the court and points added to your driver’s record. Having too many points on your record can lead to losing your driver’s license or having it restricted to specific times when you are allowed to drive. Your car insurance rates can also go up due to getting points added on your driver’s record from a traffic ticket. Below are some of the most common traffic tickets defended by the attorneys at Just Right Law.
