Most people probably don’t think much about traffic violations, since most people probably don’t get traffic tickets very often, if at all. But citations are issued on a regular basis. One national newspaper reported that one in six Americans is ticketed for speeding every year. That’s 41 million tickets every year nationwide, just for speeding. There are also many other types of tickets issued for traffic violations each year, and that’s a lot of traffic violations.
If you receive a ticket, you might wonder why you would hire a lawyer just because you got a traffic ticket that might cost you a couple hundred dollars. The reality is that too many people experience overly harsh consequences of traffic violations that could have been avoided with the right defense help. In many cases, it could prove to be well worth your while to hire a Highland traffic violation attorney.
There are many scenarios where a conviction on a traffic offense could result in a suspension or even revocation of your driver’s license. Some of them involve serious offenses, such as driving while intoxicated or impaired. Other situations, though, could result in the suspension of your license because of a number of what you might have considered to be minor traffic violations. In Indiana, your license can be suspended for many reasons, some obvious, some not so obvious, including:
The “habitual offender” classification is serious. The first two ways to fall into the category are conviction for two major traffic violations that result in someone’s death, or three major offenses such as operating while intoxicated or reckless driving. The third, though, merely involves ten traffic violations in ten years, so long as one of the violations is a major violation, driving with a suspended license, or driving without a license. In other words, one OWI and nine speeding tickets, and your license could be suspended for ten years. Suddenly, hiring an attorney for traffic violations doesn’t sound so much like overkill.
Traffic violations can be serious and have consequences that can have a major negative impact on your life if you are convicted.
