Traffic violations or infractions in Virginia can result in fines, demerit points on your driving record, license loss and even jail sentences in certain situations. When an individual receives a traffic ticket, he or she may decide to simply pay it to avoid having to deal with the law, or because this person believes nothing can be done about it. What most people fail to realize, however, is that traffic tickets can be beaten or reduced by an experienced Virginia traffic lawyer, which can eliminate potential future consequences.
Simply pleading guilty to a violation without first exploring the potential of legally challenging it is not a recommended course of action, especially for a person who is a commercial driver or otherwise drives for a living. A driver must not only consider the penalties of pleading guilty to the current violation, but also how this action will affect him should he be cited again in the future.
Fines are not the only issue. As demerit points accumulate on a person’s driving record, he or she risks facing harsher future penalties, increased insurance premiums as well as a driving license suspension. Furthermore, serious offenses such as Reckless Driving and Driving on Suspended License can carry criminal penalties including jail time.
