Traffic Tickets Have Long-Term Costs
Many people do not take their traffic charges seriously enough. Don’t prepay a ticket assuming that “it’s just a small fine.” In Virginia, every moving violation will add demerit points (3, 4, or 6) to your driving history and may cause your auto insurance premium to increase for the next several years. If you accumulate too many demerit points, within a short period of time, the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles can put you on “probation” or suspend your driver’s license. Even if you live outside Virginia, a traffic conviction here will likely be reported to your home state.
The consequences of criminal traffic charges, including DUI or Reckless driving, are far worse. These consequences potentially include: the loss of your license, a hefty fine, a permanent criminal record and even jail time. In Virginia, a criminal conviction can never be expunged. This could jeopardize your job or your future career. Because of the potentially lifelong ramifications of these charges, it is crucial that you hire an experienced defense attorney.
If you are a professional or commercial vehicle driver, criminal charges or even traffic infractions can cause you to lose your license, your job, and your ability to support your family. Despite having had a clean record for years, one mistake could ruin your employer’s FMCSA Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) Score. This makes it harder for a trucking company to bring in new business. A bad CSA score means that new clients may write off your company as a safety risk. In addition to what happens in court, your employer might punish you. You could be put on probation at work or even terminated from your job.
