Penalties for Traffic Crimes
The circumstances of your alleged traffic offense will determine how seriously it will be considered by the court. In many cases, these are considered misdemeanor offenses, but in some instances, they can be classified as felonies. Either way, a conviction can result in a serious interruption to the accused's life.
A traffic crime conviction can result in:
- Jail time
- Thousands of dollars in fines
- An impoundment of your vehicle
- Points added to your driving record
- Suspension of your driving privilege by DMV
