Traffic Offenses We Will Fight For You

Traffic Ticket Lawyers in Manassas

What Are the Penalties for Traffic Offenses in VA?

Traffic offenses are relatively minor, and many drivers will be pulled over at least once in their lifetime. This does not mean that a traffic ticket cannot be life-changing. For some, an employer may require a perfectly clean driving record. For others, an accumulation of negative points can lead to a license suspension. Whatever the situation may be, a driver’s license is likely a necessity. A skilled traffic ticket lawyer in Manassas can fight on your behalf and guide you through the complex criminal process.

Sandground, West, Silek, Raminpour & Wright, PLC helps defend the following traffic charges and more:

Penalty for Reckless Driving

Unlike minor traffic violations, reckless driving is a criminal offense that could result in your arrest, jail time, and/or license suspension. Reckless driving charges can be brought for speeding more than 20 miles per hour over the speed limit, speeds in excess of 80 miles per hour, or any other driving behavior that endangers life or property.

Driving without a License

Driving without a license is considered to be a relatively serious offense because it means that the driver has likely not received proper training or been tested on the knowledge of the rules of the road. In Virginia, even a first offense is a Class 2 misdemeanor carrying the possibility of up to 6 months in jail or a $1,000 fine. Subsequent offenses are Class 1 misdemeanors and carry even harsher penalties.

Driving on a Suspended License

Driving on a suspended license is treated even more severely than simply driving without a valid license. A first offense is a Class 1 misdemeanor punishable by up to 1 year in jail and a $2,500 fine. The offense also adds 6 points to the driver’s record and stays on the driving record for 11 years.

Moving Violations & Fines

Moving violations such as speeding, running a red light, and unsafe lane changes are not criminal offenses, but can still carry hefty fines, insurance premium increases, and negative points leading to possible license suspension.
