Legally Dealing With Traffic Violations

There are roughly 200 million drivers in the United States, and it is estimated that approximately 1 out of every five will receive a traffic ticket over the course of one year. Whether for common tickets such as speeding, improper passing, careless driving, failure to observe traffic lanes, failure to yield at a traffic intersection, or running a red light, to the potentially deadly DUI/DWI, racing, tailgating, leaving the scene of an accident, failing to report an accident, improper turn, improper turn at an intersection, improper backing up or U-turn or reckless driving, traffic tickets encompass a large variety of offenses. While some violations are certainly more common than others, there are always options when dealing with a traffic violation. It is best to consider what those options are because amassing penalties, points and DMV/insurance surcharges or even going to jail can have a severe impact on your daily life, license, registration, insurance and/or privilege to drive in the state.
