Have you been charged with a speeding ticket or other traffic infraction?
Speeding tickets and other traffic infractions can affect you beyond just a monetary fine. Traffic infractions, like speeding tickets, lead to demerit points which can jeopardize your driver’s license and cause much higher insurance premiums.
Our entire practice is focused on defending those charged with criminal and serious traffic offenses like yours. I can help you by getting your traffic infraction or speeding ticket dismissed or reduced, usually without you needing to appear in court.
What are the potential consequences of a traffic infraction conviction?
- 1-9 mph over the speed limit: 3 demerit points in Virginia
- 10-19 mph over the speed limit: 4 demerit points in Virginia
- 20+ mph over the speed limit: 6 demerit points in Virginia
- Following too closely: 4 demerit points in Virginia
Accumulating 18 or more demerit points within 12 months, or 24 demerit points within a 24 month period will result in an automatic suspension of your license by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles.
