When you receive your Indiana driver’s license, you agree to comply with the many traffic regulations in Indiana. These laws are in place to keep drivers safe and prevent collisions, though many people disregard these safety rules. Law enforcement officers are always out looking for traffic offenders, and it can be stressful to see flashing lights in your rearview mirror. If you receive a citation for a traffic violation, it can be difficult to know what to do.
Traffic tickets may seem minor, and you may be tempted to pay the fine and move forward with your life. However, doing this can result in many unforeseen consequences that you cannot undo. Instead of trying to handle the matter on your own, learn how the skilled Crown Point traffic violation lawyers at Arshad, Pangere & Warring, LLP, can help. We seek the best possible outcome for every client in traffic cases, so contact us today for a consultation.
There are many different traffic laws on the books in Indiana, and some violations are more serious than others. Common violations in our cases include:
A speeding ticket may not seem like a big deal compared to a DUI, though you can feel the effects of a speeding conviction for a long time if not addressed properly.
The penalties for a traffic conviction will vary depending on the violation. Some penalties can include:
More serious offenses, such as DUI, can result in criminal charges and penalties, including probation and possible jail time. In addition, failing to appear in court or pay a fine can result in additional criminal charges and a warrant for your arrest.
When you pay a fine for a traffic violation, it will be considered a conviction on your traffic record. If you are convicted of multiple traffic offenses within a certain time period, you could have your license suspended or be considered a Habitual Traffic Violator (HTV) by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV). An experienced traffic attorney can help defend against moving violations and serious offenses to reduce or eliminate the long-term penalties you face.
While a traffic violation may seem like a minor matter, many people experience serious consequences when they fail to handle their case in the right way.
