Virginia Traffic Offenses

Traffic Attorney in Virginia

If you have been charged with a traffic offense in Virginia it is important to understand the severity of your offense. A traffic attorney from Montgomery, Kelley & Dennett in New Kent, Virginia can help you understand your offense and help guide you thru your case. Traffic offenses often fall within three categories: infraction, misdemeanor and felony. Each type depends on certain factors, and each category corresponds to specific consequences. Traffic infractions are minor offenses not classifiable as either a misdemeanor or felony. These violations usually include speeding, running a red light, and driving without a headlight or taillight. Infractions generally do not go to your criminal history, although you might get demerits on your driving record. Additionally, they will likely only result in tickets and fines.

Traffic Misdemeanors

A misdemeanor is a heavier offense that can get you more severe penalties, including jail time, license suspension and fines. Examples of traffic misdemeanors include reckless driving, driving with a suspended license, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Misdemeanors are a violation of criminal laws and for this reason, they appear in your criminal record and usually stay there for years.
