Virginia Traffic Violations & Potential Consequences
The most common infraction the general public typically experiences are traffic violations involving speeding and other citations concerning general traffic safety. Penalties for infrequent infractions concern merely paying a fine to a court and possible points against your driving record that will drop off over time. However, once there are two or three violations in a fairly short period of time there are now expensive consequences apart from the accumulating court fines with the additional risk of your license being suspended and incurring higher insurance rates. Hiring a traffic attorney to plead your case is then in your best interest.
We specialize in assisting out-of-state drivers that have received a traffic citation in the State of Virginia. We can help them avoid having to physically appear in court and will attempt to have their charge reduced or absolved. This is especially true in the case of a reckless driving charge. Virginia is somewhat unique in requiring an appearance in court if you were cited for driving 20 miles an hour or more above the posted speed limit. If you have received a traffic citation anywhere along the I-64 corridor from Virginia Beach to Richmond we are here to help. Traffic offenses constitute a wide range of variables where we can potentially find a means to have your case dismissed or reduced without your having to bear the time and expense of appearing in court.
Commercial drivers are particularly affected by traffic violations. Any infraction on their record is a critical factor to their livelihood when it comes to maintaining or finding employment as a CDL driver. Because of liability and strict safety regulations imposed by insurance companies as well as Federal and State governments, many trucking companies will either fire or not hire you if there is even one traffic ticket on your record. With your livelihood at stake, you will need an experienced traffic attorney fighting for you. Call us today!
